is reporting that the writing team of Matt Holloway and Art Marcum (Iron Man) have been hired to write the screenplay for the ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ reboot for Paramount Pictures and Platinum Dunes for a 2012 release. This live-action reboot is said to harness the spirit of the original 80′s comic books.
I remember seeing these films as a kid. I loved the first film and the second two were not as great but that is to be expected for remakes. I am interested in Platinum Dunes involvement because they have made some fairly dark films. This film has a strong built in audience and will be leaps above the original films special effects wise I am sure. With the hiring of Holloway and Marcum, there is a definite chance for a great story as well.
What are your thoughts on this news? Are you excited for some more turtle action?
