After the (dwindling) success of the three live action Ninja Turtles movies in the early 90s, there were plans to make a fourth. From the pre-production of that fourth Turtles movie comes this ugly concept art, showing that we would have had to endure some of the crappiest Turtles action figures come to life, including some sort of feral clawed Raphael.
With Nickelodeon’s new TMNT series, Lego will be launching a TMNT playset with all kinds of TMNT minifigs. Since it is based on the Nick series, some of the characters look different than what you might remember from the 80s and 90s, but I’m still impressed.
While Michael Bay’s TMNT project is on hold right now, every little bit of news that ended up on the internet just seemed like bad news. And then, this past weekend, a copy of one of the lastest Ninja Turtles scripts hit the web and it’s bad. Oh so bad.
Just as Michael Bay’s TMNT movie was about to go into production, Paramount halted the project temporarily. Temporarily is the key word. Apparently, studio execs weren’t at all happy with the script, so it’s being sent back for rewrites and the release date has been pushed back to spring 2014. We almost dodged a bullet, but not quite.
