Thread: New TMNT movie

    New TMNT movie

    I've been reading about this project for a while with no real details ever being released. So far all they really said before was that John Woo is directing, it'll be computer animated and the movie will be dark and adult oriented. I'm not a real big John Woo fan but it needs to have a director of his style to give this movie the action edge it needs. Now they are announcing this guy Kevin Monroe who I don't know. Can he pull this movie off?

    Given how far CGI has come this medium is the only way to properly do this movie. Last thing we need to see is another guy-in-a-foam-suit movie.

    Here's an article from today regarding this movie. Again, nothing insightful.

    Ninja turtles 'return to cinemas'

    The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are to return to the big screen after 14 years away, according to trade paper Variety.
    The comic-book superheroes - last seen on screen in 1993 - will appear in a computer-animated feature that is set for release in early 2007.

    "We think a new generation of kids will love discovering Turtles," said Warner Brothers president Jeff Robinov.

    Written and directed by Kevin Munroe, the film will be distributed by Miramax founders Harvey and Bob Weinstein.

    The humanoid fighting turtles caused a worldwide sensation when they were adapted for television in 1987.

    Named after the Renaissance painters Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael, the series coined the word "Cowabunga!" and sparked a craze for terrapins as pets.

    The film version that followed in 1990 led to two sequels. The trilogy made more than $256m (146m) in North America.

    According to Variety, the new film will be far grittier and more adult than the originals and will feature state-of-the-art computer-generated graphics.

    Action director John Woo had previously been linked to the project.
    Now, I stopped reading/collecting the comics soon after Eastman and Laird stopped writing and drawing. It was a good series up until that point when it ended with the death of Shredder then it really sucked so I bailed. It would be nice to see them set the TMNT to battle with FOOT and Shredder again for a movie.

    Also, bring back Vanilla Ice!!! "Go Ninja! Go Ninja! Go!"

    By choosing not to decide you still have made a choice.

    Nice to see some news about this finally. Isn't Woo also working on He-Man?

    I've never heard of the other films this dude's done, though.

    And what imbecile believes the Turtles "coined" the word cowabunga?

    Hopefully the CGI is much better than the kind used to promote the Turtles toys in their commercials. Im really excited about this movie. Ive lost interest in the cartoon but a adult themed movie might be satisfiying. Least i have one movie to look forward to in 2007.

    I wonder how they're going to get Raph to hold, much less shoot, 2 pistols at once while leaping through the air, and doves flying away from action scenes in New York sewers, all in slo-mo...
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.
