For quite a while now, a new, live action version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been in the works and now it appears its found its director, as Variety reports Battle: Los Angeles and Wrath Of The Titans helmer Jonathan Liebesman is in talks to helm the movie.
Iron Man co-writers Art Malcum and Matt Holloway and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol’s Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec have both already had a go at the script for what is planned as a big budget take on the story of the walking, talking, martial arts vigilante amphibians. Michael Bay is producing but there’s no info on the direction the movie is taking, and whether the film will be pitched as a family adventure or a more grown-up movie in the vein of the original comics.
It’s not certain either where this might fit in Liebesman’s schedule, as he’s also attached to Greek epic Odysseus and a movie about Julius Caesar.
