Weinstein & Warner Bros. to Deliver All-New CG "Turtles"

by | July 18, 2005 | Comments

Variety reports on an arrangement between WB and the Weinstein boys that will return the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" to the silver screen. The new movie, which will be done all-CGI and with a semi-dark PG-level "edge," will be written and directed by animation veteran Kevin Munroe, in close consultation with original "Turtles" co-creator Peter Laird.

The crime-fighting, wise-cracking, pizza-loving ninjatic reptiles have starred in comic books, video games, cartoon series, and a trilogy of New Line movies in the early 90’s — but the Weinsteins and the Warners want to bring a new slant to the story.

"Reintroducing the Ninja Turtles in an animated movie will enable the filmmakers to fully realize the adventure and humor of the property," says Mr. Weinstein, while WB Jeff Robinov takes it a step further: "We think that a new generation of kids will love discovering ‘Turtles,’ especially supported by the enthusiasm of fans of the original movies, comicbooks and TV shows."

This new-fangled version of the kooky ol’ turtlefest is expected to hit theaters in early 2007.
