There's a remake of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ahead of us. The remake is simply titled "Ninja Turtles". Director Jonathan Liebesman (who brought us Battle Los Angeles and Wrath of the Titans) is helming the project for Paramount. The release date of Ninja Turtles is set for December 25, 2012. Here's a short plot synopsis of the film:
Plot: "Aliens invade Earth and inadvertently spawn a quartet of mutated reptile warriors, the Ninja Turtles, who rise up against them to defend the world."
A few words from Michael Bay who's producing the film:
"The characters you all remember are exactly the same, and yes they still act like teenagers. Everything you remember, why you liked the characters, is in the movie. This script is being developed by two very smart writers, with one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles. They care VERY MUCH about making this film for the fans."
Let's watch the trailer of the 1990 Ninja Turtles movie:

The new Ninja Turtles movie will probably have an edgier tone than the original film. Well, I don't mind an edgier take as long as the turtles still crave for pizzas. Impatient to see how it's going to turn out then!
Anyway, more details about the new Ninja Turtles movie soon. :)
