Mission Impossible : Rebooting Ninja Turtles?

Mission Impossible : Rebooting Ninja Turtles?

Deadline is reporting that “Mission Impossible : Ghost Protocol” scribes Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec have been asked to have a stab at the script for the Platinum Dunes produced “Ninja Turtles” reboot. From memory, “Iron Man” scribes Art Marcum and Matt Holloway had been previously working on the script.

Previously…

If you were thankful for their interpretation of Leatherface, loved what they did with Jason, and ‘dream’ about their Freddy Krueger – just wait and see what Platinum Dunes’ have planned for the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”!

Yep, Michael Bay’s greenbacks-before-greatness shingle will team with Paramount/Nickelodeon on a live-action reboot of the classic ’80s cartoon favourite!

Last year Nick “shelled” out $60 million for the rights to the martial-arts trained amphibians.

According to Deadline, Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form will meet with writers over the next few weeks (suggesting John Susco’s ‘reboot’ script is out).

In a future press release*, Bay said “The Turtles became too jokey in those later movies – what people want to see was Turtles ‘exploding’, not Turtles eating Pizza!. Even Casey Jones, who legend has it was based on Platinum Dunes’ very-own Jason Voorhees, turned into a lighter, friendlier hero character – that doesn’t seem right. We weren’t scared, of any of these characters, anymore. That is not Ninja Turtles. We’re all intrigued by Turtles. We’re all scared by Ninja’s. It’s time to make those four guys scary again – give audiences a peek what lies underneath their grimy, cracked shells. And yes, Casey will kill with that hockey stick. We’re on the hunt for a cheap, commercials director who can help us bring our vision to life”.

Look, so long as Vanilla Ice gets a cameo, I’m sure it’ll do well.

*newswires need not re-run those quotes. It’s, er, a joke.
