  new LIVE ACTION "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" Movie

Live Action "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" Movie in the Works 04-23-2009 (17:30:32)
The Mirage Group, which owns the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" property, is moving forward with a live-action film focusing on the origins of the iconic crime fighters. Project, targeted for release in 2011, would mark the fifth big screen outing for the sewer-dwelling heroes Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael as well as their master Splinter.

News coincides with the Turtles' 25th anniversary celebration, which kicks off Thursday in New York as the first "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" film unspools at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Legendary Pictures former chief marketing officer Scott Mednick is producing the new pic alongside Galen Walker, who produced the 2007 computer-animated "TMNT" pic, the most recent installment in the franchise. Mednick added that the pic may employ face replacement technology, which would allow the turtles to be much more expressive.

The characters first appeared in a May 1984 comic book before spawning a lucrative line of toys, cartoons and three films released in the early 1990s. In 2003, the Turtles were reintroduced to a new generation via a TV series, the "TMNT" film and a revamped merchandising program.

New "Ninja Turtles" Movie to Use Turtle Suits 04-24-2009 (12:00:32)
Just yesterday, The Mirage Group announced a new live-action "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie, with a tentative 2011 release date. But will the film look more like the original "Ninja Turtles" or like "Alvin and the Chipmunks," where CGI characters are inserted into the real world.

"TMNT" co-creator Peter Laird updated his blog with a few bits of information about Mirage's plan for their new movie. Here is what he had to say:

"Our initial discussions regarding the next film had to do with what we were calling a "hybrid" -- live action with realistic Turtles rendered in CGI and blended in. This new idea -- which, frankly, I am VERY pumped about -- will have actors and stunt performers in full Turtle suits for filming in live action. As of right now, there is talk of using CGI to do "face replacement" for the suits so that we can get those great, expressive faces possible with CGI."

So basically, the new "TMNT" film will look like the upcoming "Where the Wild Things Are."

Regarding the status of the movie: "We are very early in the development process -- no writer or director has been chosen yet," said Laird. "And we've just started talking about the story." Mirage previously mentioned that it has already started discussions with several high-profile actors interested in portraying the Turtles.
