We all know the controversy surrounding the 'Ninja Turtles' reboot being produced by Michael Bay. Bay himself has said they're expanding the origin of the Ninja Turtles and went so far as to say they were an "alien race" which caused millions of sewer dwelling pizza eaters to throw their pepperoni up in the air and cry foul. Now a new player has been added to the mix.

Will fans joyously yell "Cowabunga!" or finally give up on the franchise entirely?

Word out on the street is that hip hop star Kid Cudi will be involved in the 'Ninja Turtles' reboot. The popular star posted on his Tumblr page about being involved in the currently in pre-production film. He posted this pic and the following message:

"An original one of a kind sketch of a unknown Ninja Turtle by one half of the creators, Kevin Eastman. A gift given to me by my homies Andrew Form and Brad Fuller over at Platinum Dunes. Hint hint mane.”

He also posted on his Twitter account:

“To everyone with doubts & concerns about the new TMNT reboot, trust me, there is NOTHING to worry about. Trust. Everyone will be pleased! I was skeptical as well, but by no means is this movie gonna suck. Huge fans will be happy.”

So is this picture given to Kid Cudi a hint at what the new Turtles will look like? And what is Kid Cudi's involvement in the film? Is he acting, doing the music or both? We'll have to wait and see. All we know is the last time a rapper got involved in a Ninja Turtles movie we ended up with this.
