While many people are very pessimistic about the new Teenage Mutant Nina Turtles movie, co-creator Kevin Eastman claims that the film is going to be awesome. Kevin has been in regular contact with the makers of the movie and insists that fans will be pleased with the outcome.
Eastman explained, “Much like many thirty-year-old concepts, the TMNT’s have been re-invented a number of times, but…each has a slightly new and refreshed take on the core concept. The new film will be the same, a film well placed in the TMNT lore the fans will enjoy.”
He added, “They bring me in regularly to show off the latest landscape and to get my thoughts, and so far I’m one thousand per cent on board! I know it will be an awesome film, and the start of a killer franchise.”
Director Michael Bay came in for a lot of criticism when it was revealed that he was going to make a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. Fans of the franchise, as well as former Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles actor Robbie Rist, who voiced Michaelangelo, slammed Bay for taking the project on.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is currently expected to be released in 2014.
