TMNT Goes Back To Its Roots

Instead of staying with the successful CGI format, TMNT is going back to live action.
IGN is reporting that the studio that owns the TMNT property, Mirage Group, is putting the live action project on the fast track for development. Rumor is it will be a origins story of our favorite pizza eating, sewer skate boarding, foot battling turtles.

The good news is that Galen Walker, who produced the 2007 CGI big screen TMNT is onboard, at least they are keeping one element of success from the CGI TMNT film. Galen also produced 300. Mix the two elements together and you've got a live action hit.

Galen states: "The original dozen comics created by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman are some of the best source material one could hope for."
Which is true, regarding all comics of the last 50 or so years. The CGI film I don't know just had that professional feel to it. It was how we wanted to see our turtle heroes on the big screen. A live action film would rock but only if it was done right. Hopefully the studio hits a home run. If this live action movie fails TMNT needs to go back to a CGI format.

Galen added further details stating that the film will remain true to the spirit of the original comics, and may use sinister sounding "face replacement technology", which allow's the turtles to be much more expressive and real.

The movie is scheduled for a 2011 release. This will be the fourth live-action film to star our pizza eating Heroes in a Half Shell, with their first movie hitting theaters all the way back in 1990.
