Hated the first one, loved the second, endured the third. If I got out them out – actually, I don’t think I even own DVD copies of them come to think of it – tonight though, I’ve a feeling I’d be pretty disappointed. I’ve a feeling those “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”, much like the Rubik’s cube, Sunday night movie and heart-tick Muffins, were a thing of its time.

Just don’t tell The Weinstein Company that. They’ve just poured a punnet of cash into a new “Ninja Turtles” film, a CGI one, which Warners has agreed to distribute. Granted, like “Batman Begins”, this is a restart to the series, or close to it, so any concerns about wonky ‘guys in suits’ and Vanilla Ice title tracks, should pretty much be taken care of.

“‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ represents a brand that is widely recognized all around the world, and we think this new CG version will be a huge hit among audiences everywhere,” said TWC co-chair Harvey Weinstein, who made the announcement with Warner Bros. Pictures president of distribution Dan Fellman.

The company is quick to point out that the new “Ninja Turtles” film, which won’t feature the voice of Corey Feldman, will be much “grittier” than the first three films.
