THE TURTLES ARE BACK!!!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles...HEROES IN A HALF SHELL--TURTLE POWER!!!
Sorry. I had to. I'm SUPER excited for the announcement that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are coming back to the big screen in LIVE action form. TMNT (the animated version that came out a few years ago) was a horrible way to end the franchise. The thought of another live action flick to bring the totally tubular turtles back into the limelight sounds like a winner to me.
The project is targeted for release sometime in 2011. It will be the fifth time that Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael will make their way onto the silver screen.
I have seen EVERY TMNT movie. When I was little my cousins and I each owned turtle costumes and would dress up on a daily basis to mimick our beloved heroes. I admit they still haven't inspired me to try anchovies on my pizza, but they did make it cool to be a nerd (thanks Leo!). I also own the TMNT soundtrack which sports incredibly awesome hits like: "Walk Straight" and "Pizza Power". No joke.
I'm not sure where I'll be in 2011, but I promise I'll find my way to theaters just so that for two hours I can revert back to my childhood self.
