Michael Bay's TMNT Reboot Rumored To Kick Off Filming This Autumn, Vanilla Ice Is Involved?!

It's happening, 'Ninja Turtle' helmed by Jonathan Liebesman and produced by Michael Bay are rumored to be contemplating filming locations in Vancouver for a late summer/early fall shoot date.



Following the huge internet uproar known as 'Turtlegate' the key figures behind the new take on TMNT released a few details about the project. What's currently known is that the picture will drop the 'Teenage Mutant' portion of it's title and simply be known as 'Ninja Turtles'. The film is being produced by Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes production company and will be directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath of the Titans) with a screenplay from Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol). The word spreading around Vancouver casting and production companies is that filming may begin fairly soon with a targeted release date of December 2013. It's been confirmed that the 'Turtles' will be CGI this go-around akin to what moviegoers witnessed in Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

What's currently unknown is who will be voicing the beloved reptilian siblings and whether or not ancillary characters, April O'Neil and Casey Jones will join the reboot. Rumors have been abound that everyone from Kid Cudi to Corey Feldman to Donald Glover could be involved with the project in some capacity. One person from the original franchise who would love to return is musician /reality celebrity Vanilla Ice---



If you can't see the video in your country ( you miss out on seeing his calf TMNT tattoo), Ice says, ""I can't say anything," (a tried and true indication that yes, he's involved with the project) Ice grinned when asked if he would be involved with the return of the Turtles. "I know that they're not from the sewers now. They're aliens now or something."

"I don't mess around," he said of his "TMNT" pride. "I'm still a Ninja Turtles fan."

I have to admit though, the little kid in me has a soft spot for "Ninja Rap".
