We understand if you don't believe everything the Movie Fanatic staff has to say.
But the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator himself says a live-action adaption of the former cartoon series really is on the way. Peter Laird told MTV:
MTV: Peter, there was a lot of buzz recently when Kevin Eastman posted on his website that there have been trips out to Northampton to talk with you, as well as [original "TMNT" director"] Steve Barron, about a potential live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. How serious are these talks?
Peter Laird: I have to say that I don’t know why Kevin was talking about something with which he has no involvement. The blurb he put on his website was very inaccurate. He has not been involved with any meetings in Northampton, nor any others related to a new “TMNT” movie, as far as I know. That being said, I can confirm that we have had several meetings with very interested people, and I think we are pretty close to making a deal. As owner of the TMNT property, I want to be the first to announce it at a time of my choosing (hopefully soon).
