The turtles are back in an all-new remake of 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,' produced by 'Transformers 4' helmer Michael Bay and directed by Jonathan Liebesman. But don't expect that classic "bouncy cartoon feel," though. Star William Fichtner, playing Shredder in the film, recently opened up about the new take on the turtles and the villain, revealing that this could be the start of more to come.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
In 1990, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles went from animated to live-action with their first feature film. 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' follows a quartet of mutated vigilante turtles as they try to help save New York City from a gang known as the Foot Clan, led by the evil Shredder. The film spawned two sequels, and a new live-action film is on the way from producer Michael Bay.
Twenty-three years after the Ninja Turtles first graced the big screen, we take a look at the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
There's an art to choosing a film's release date, particularly when you're dealing with big summer tentpoles that could spawn a franchise and need the perfect placement. What date would be perfect for the upcoming remake/reboot of 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'? We're not sure, but it looks like Paramount decided to make a change and have pushed the film back a few months.
Production on the Michael Bay-produced 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' is heating up in NYC, as seen through the countless paparazzi pics of Megan Fox and the pre-CGI turtles swarming out from the set. And more keep coming by the day, but the latest batch revealed one big-haired surprise for us -- THE Whoopi Goldberg.
The Michael Bay-produced 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' reboot has already begun filming in NYC. We've already seen photos of Megan Fox's April O'Neil, Will Arnett, a few henchmen and the first pics of the pre-CGI turtles themselves. Though, there's still at least one more role to fill and that's for new addition William Fichtner.
When Megan Fox was cast as April O'Neil in the upcoming 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' reboot, the reaction was...mixed. And by "mixed" we mean, mixed between people hating it and people really hating it. Today, however, we have the first look at Megan Fox in character as April on the 'Ninja Turtles' set and maybe it'll change your mind. Maybe? (Probably not.)
Michael Bay's 'Pain and Gain' arrived in theaters this weekend, so naturally, everyone is asking him about 'Transformers 4' and 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.' Although both films don't arrive until 2014, Bay offered additional information about them that will possibly ease the jittery nerves of fanboys all over the world.
