If you were a child of the 80s, then it was almost impossible to miss hearing about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles during the last few years of that decade. During that time, 3 movies were made: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (dumb, but entertaining for children), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze (whomever decided to put Vanilla Ice into a kids' movie should be flogged publicly) and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III (kinda dumb, but at least they had better action sequences and some pretty settings). Now, over a decade later, a fourth film has been announced.
This movie, simply titled TMNT, is due to come out March 30, 2007. It will be entirely computer animated and will keep the visual style and grittiness of the original Mirage comics. According to Peter Laird (one of the original creators of the comics), the film will feature multiple villains but none of them will be Shredder (in fact, Laird wants to keep Shredder dead like in the comic series).
