First Look At Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) Actors In Motion-Capture Suits

Yes, they look absolutely ridiculous, but bear in mind the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles actors are wearing Motion-Capture Suits.

We’ve already heard that their looks is being compared to Avatar, and this isn’t the first time we’ve seen suits such as these.

Michael Shannon wore one for Man of Steel as well as the alien Chitauri army in The Avengers  – and those turned out pretty good.

Looks like the Turtles get captured as they appear to be hand-cuffed.

No Aliens For Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; Transformers 4 Getting Complete Re-Design

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:7275:]]As of late, we have learned two – corrections  – regarding the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.

The first was last week when a new logo was unveiled for the movie which included “Teenage Mutant,” as it was previously said Bay was dropping that part of the title for simply “Ninja Turtles.”

The second comes today with Michael Bay stating that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will not be aliens, as was also previously stated to be the case.

“There was that quote saying that we’re making [the Ninja Turtles as] aliens. We’re not,” Bay clarifed to MovieFone. “It’s the ooze! It’s from the original source material. These are from the original writers, and I never went out to correct myself in the press. I do listen to the fans and I do want this to be authentic. I think they’re going to be really happy with this movie. When I see the digital stuff, the turtles look great.”

Bay also gives us an updated on Transformers 4, stating the robots will be getting a complete re-design.

“You know there are a couple of historians of Transformers. I would do my designs of the robots and they’re like, ‘What if you just add a little bit more ears to Optimus?’ But they’re really hands off,” Bay offered. “We’ve redesigned them in ‘Transformers 4,’ and there’s some really cool s-t in it. I’m literally redesigning every character, top to bottom. There’s a reason why they’re redesigned, but it’s also to keep it new and fresh to me. I think the fans will appreciate some of this new stuff we have in the movie and some of the new characters.”

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has a June 6, 2014 release starring Megan Fox as April O’Neil.

Transformers 4 has a Summer 2014 release with Mark Walhberg as the lead.

Michael Bay’s Movie Is Now Called “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:7040:]]With news of a new TMNT reboot by Michael Bay, it was said that the “teenage mutant” aspects of the famous reptiles was being dropped in favor of an alien origin for “Ninja Turtles.”

Well, it turns out that doesn’t seem to be the case as Paramount apparently debuted a new logo at CinemaCon that read “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.”

Paramount, Bay and director Jonathan Liebesman may have seen the light of day as the online response has been overwhelmingly negative.

It also turns out that the script has apparently been re-written as well by Evan Daugherty, which might help explain things.

No plot details are known and the movie has already begun filming; Bay is on as producer and the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turlets” has a Summer 2014 release.

Megan Fox will play April O’Neil, with Danny Woodburn as Splinter, Will Arnett has an unknown role, and rounding out the cast of the Turtles are Alan RitchsonPetePloszek, Jeremy Howard and Noel Fisher.

Michael Bay’s Ninja Turtles (2014) Gets Its Splinter With Danny Woodburn

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:6950:]]We get one more cast addition to the Michael Bay-produced Ninja Turtles reboot with Danny Woodburn who will play Master Splinter.

In one version of the Turtles, Splinter was the pet of Hamto Yoshi where he mimicked his Master’s martial arts moves and escaped to the sewers where he encountered the ooze and was mutated into more of a human form.

In still another version, Hamto Yoshi and Master Splinter are one in the same.

It’s unknown which version Bay and director Jonathan Liebesman will be using in Ninja Turtles as plot details are scarce.

Danny Woodburn joins Megan Fox who will play the film’s female lead as April O’Neil, with Alan RitchsonPetePloszek, Jeremy Howard and Noel Fisher playing the turtles in what is being described as more akin to Avatar through use of CGI.

Will Arnett was said to be previously cast in Ninja Turtles as well, in an unidentified role, with it thought either Splinter or Shredder; with the news of Woodburn, the latter looks like a stronger possibility as Arnett could be the voice of Shredder. Arnett will also be voicing Batman in the LEGO movie.

Ninja Turtles has a June 6, 2014 release.

Regarding Will Arnett’s character, it’s stated that it definitely isn’t Casey Jones, who has yet to be cast, and since it’s a lead the role it could either be the villain Shredder or the wise teacher of the ninja turtles, Splinter.

Will Arnet joins Megan Fox who will play the film’s female lead as April O’Neil, with Alan Ritchson, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard and Noel Fisher playing the turtles in what is being described as more akin to Avatar with use of CGI.

It’s also stated that a lead male role is now being sought after for the Ninja Turtles movie.

Star Wars: Corey Feldman Wants To Be Han Solo’s Son In Episode VII

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:4323:]]We know a script for Star Wars Episode VII is in the works and by all indications the movie will see the return of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo.

Already Robert Pattinson, Tom Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth said they would be interested in having a role in the new Star Wars, so how about Corey Feldman?

Feldman not only wants a part of the new Star Wars, but he already has an idea for the movie and is lobbying for the role — of Han Solo’s son!

“More than anything, I want a part in that new Star Wars franchise,” Feldman tells MovieWeb. “I think Harrison Ford’s son is a really great idea, actually. Fans have always said that I would make a great Indiana Jones, a great Young Indiana Jones. We look very similar, we have the same type of bravado. The same character persona with the whole Edgar Frog thing. It is a good fit.”

Not only does Feldman want to become the next galactic smuggler, but he is also vying for a spot in Michael Bay’s new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, hoping to return as Michelangelo. 

And speaking of returns, Corey Feldman wants to return as Tommy in another Friday the 13th movie — in 3D!

“Let’s get Corey in the new Star Wars movie, lets get Corey back as Donatello in Ninja Turtles with Michael Bay, and lets get Corey back to reprise his role as Tommy Jarvis, to make the fan anticipated sequel, above all, Friday the 13th Part XIII: Jason Vs. Jarvis in 3D,” Feldman offers. That is what I’m pitching.”

Can’t blame the guy for trying, right?

Star Wars Episode VII has a 2015 release date.

Kevin Eastmen Compares Changes In New Ninja Turtles To The Avengers

Kevin Eastmen, creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, recently spoke about the upcoming new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie at Comic-Con.

Ever since it was first announced that a new Turtles flick was in the making — with Michael Bay attached, fans have been in a half-shell.

It’s been said that Bay is dropping both the “teenage” and “mutant” aspects of the Turtles, and giving them an alien origin.

To add to that, the release date for the new Ninja Turtles movie has been pushed back six months to May 16th of 2014.

So with fans all in an uproar, in an interview with our friends over at MTV Geek, Eastman compares the changes in his Turtles to what Marvel has done with The Avengers.

“I know that Michael and his group really like that and that Paramount was supportive of that, so I think that it’s great,” he shared. “I grew up reading ‘Captain America’ and ‘The Avengers’ and all that stuff, and over the course of the comic book history, since ‘Avengers’ has been around, how many times has it been reinvented, reformatted, restructured, replatformed?

I’m not even going to go there with that comparison, but Eastman does state the delay in release date for the Ninja Turtles movie makes sense as May of 2014 is the Turtles 30 Anniversary, and with that, also shares his enthusiasm for the new version.

“From what I’ve seen, it’s easily the best ‘Turtle’ movie yet. We’re talking ‘Raid: Redemption’-style fight scenes; we’re talking about epic ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ sort of effects.”

Here’s the full video:

Viacom Confirms Michael Bay Drops ‘Teenage Mutant’ For Just Ninja Turtles

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:1062:]]With the news that the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would have an alien origin, we now are receiving word that Michael Bay has also dropped the teenage aspect as well.

As the new Turtles do feature some kind of alien origin, the mutant aspect was a given to be a goner.

Now, it appears that “teenage” is dropped as well.

And where do we get this?

From Viacom.

Viacom, owner of Nickelodeon — owner of TMNT, posted on their blog a recap of the recent Nickelodeon Upfront, the presentation where the TMNT news first surfaced. There, they stated the new movie would be called “Ninja Turtles,” but were quick to add that in the new animated show — “teenage mutant” would remain.

Michael Bay gave the crowd a first look at the previsualization – filmmaker speak for a 3D, digitally animated storyboard – for Ninja Turtles, Paramount Pictures’ live-action reinvention of the franchise set to hit theaters next year.  â€œWe want this film to have the impact of a Transformers one,” said Bay.  If the stunning previs is any indication, Bay is making good progress against that lofty goal in his role as producer.  Another tidbit he offered up is that the Turtles origin story has been updated, from the decidedly 80s radioactive waste accident to an alien planet.  The “teenage mutant” remains intact, however, for the brand-new CG-animated TMNT series debuting on Nickelodeon this fall – good news for those of us who grew up in a time when the names Leonardo and Donatello were more closely associated with pizza and kung fu than art.

In addition, the official Michael Bay forums have the thread listed as “Ninja turtles.”

The tentatively titled “Ninja Turtles” has a Christmas Day 2013 release.

Jim Lawson, noted TMNT artist, took to his Facebook to offer up some ideas!

What do you think, Michael?!

Teenage Alien Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fans Will Go Apesh-t When They See It Says Director

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:1029:]]With news that the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be having an alien origin, the internet has exploded!

Quick recap: Producer on the movie Michael Bay let loose the following:

“When you see this movie, kids are going to believe, one day, that these turtles actually do exist when we are done with this movie. These turtles are from an alien race and they are going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely lovable.”

Now with that, various people related to the TMNT mythos have been taking sides. Various voice actors and creators have come out and offered their thoughts etc.

The latest (via ComingSoon) is from the director on the new TMNT movie, Jonathan Liebesman, of Battle Los: Angeles fame, and the upcoming Wrath of Titans.

“I heard about it, and I’m glad there’s such a passionate fanbase–I think that was good news for everyone–but literally, I’ve just been locked in a room with Kevin Eastman. I think what we’re developing, the fans will love. I’m a fan, and I love what we’re doing. It’s a lot of stuff Kevin’s been thinking about for a long time and just hasn’t done. Anything we expand will tie right into the mythology, so I think fans will go apesh*t when they see it.”

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is slated for a Christmas Day 2013 release.

Teenage Alien Mutant Ninja Turtles: “Could Be Whole Planet Of Them” Says Co-Creator

A bomb in the form of Michael Bay was dropped on the internet earlier with news that the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would have an alien origin.

Things started to get nasty when one voice-actor mentioned something about “sodomizing” (true!), with still another – perhaps looking for a job – stating it was a good idea.

Regardless, Bay himself took to his message boards and told the fans to chill out!

Now, TMNT Co-Creator Peter Laird, who sold the rights off to Nickelodeon in 2009, weighs in on the idea and attempts to look at the positive side of things.

Laird points out on his blog (where he sketched the below pic) the obvious as he states, “[T]he reason I say it could be a ‘genius’ idea is that — for the first time — someone has come up with a way to have as many freakin‘ Turtles as they want. I mean, if the TMNT are actually members of an alien race, there could be a whole PLANET of them!”

A whole planet of Turtles?!

Laird does state he tried adding a fifth turtle at one time, and when he did create more in the form of the “Super Turtles,” he made sure they were different than the “Ninja” ones.

However, would Bay do the same?!

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie is slated for a Christmas Day 2013 release.

Michael Bay Responds to Fans About Teenage Mutant Alien Ninja Turtles

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:956:]]Earlier, video surfaced from Nickelodeon Upfront with Michael Bay, producer on the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, stating the turtles would have an alien origin.

Well, suffice to say this wasn’t well received.

Now, Bay has responded to the fans on the forums on his official site with the following:

Fans need to take a breath, and chill. They have not read the script. Our team is working closely with one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles to help expand and give a more complex back story. Relax, we are including everything that made you become fans in the first place. We are just building a richer world.
