Turtles to return…again

Here is an article from Darkhorizons.com about the return of the Turtles to the big screen. They have been mulling over making another turtle movie since the third one came out over a decade ago. And recently John Woo was attached to direct a complete Computer Generated Turtle movie that would have been PG-13 or R with John Woo twists and turns in it.

Now, it seems someone else is going to give it a shot, here is the article:

The Weinstein Co. has pacted with Warner Bros. to distribute the first all-CGI-animated “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” reports Variety.

The as-yet-untitled pic, set for release in early 2007, would return the franchise to the big screen which it hasn’t graced since the early 90’s. It continues the “Turtles” revival that began three years ago with the bow of a new TV strip.

The trio of live-action “Turtles” films New Line released in the early 1990s grossed more than $256 million overall. The new CGI-animated movie will be grittier than its predecessors, taking its tone directly from the comicbook series.

Animation vet Kevin Munroe will write and direct. Munroe is developing the screenplay in consultation with “Turtles” comicbook co-creator Peter Laird.

Thanks to ‘Grim’.

I hope they make this a great movie to bring those damn turtles back, they keep resurfacing all the time. Cowabunga!!!
