If you're looking for a stark reminder of just how old you're getting, consider this: the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are celebrating their 25th anniversary today at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York. And coinciding with the celebration is the announcement that the Turtles will be back for their fifth feature film - and fourth live-action movie.
For anyone less-than-impressed with 2007's TMNT (yours truly included), this should come as great news. Together with Transformers 2, a live-action GI Joe and a new Ghostbusters movie, it's like Hollywood's been transported back to the '80s. And just wait until we get the He-Man and Voltron movies they've been promising...
The new Turtles movie will reportedly be a "live-action film focusing on the origins of the iconic crime fighters," which essentially translates to a "reboot" - Hollywood's second-favorite phrase these days after "branded property." The Mirage Group, which owns the property is eying a 2011 release.
