    NICKELODEON BOUGHT NINJA TURTLES FOR NEW INSTALLMENT


    Mirage, the company that owns the rights for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has sold its exclusive rights to Viacom's Nickelodeon for a transaction costed at US$ 60 million. Therefore, the heroes in the half shells have found their new home.

    With the new home, Nickelodeon is now planning a new feature film aiming for 2012 release. This will definitely under Paramount Pictures umbrella. However, it is uncertain yet whether the new film will be in CG form like the one we have in 2007 or merely a return to the live-action forms.

    Nickelodeon is also planning for a CG-animated TV series to run along side with it.

    "The Turtles were created by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman in 1984, and were four baby turtles mutated by toxic waste into human-sized, intelligent (well, maybe not Michelangelo) creatures. Their mutated rat mentor Splinter named them after Renaissance artists (Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo and Raphael) and taught them martial arts, which they use against bad guy Shredder and his henchmen." - EO

    So, what say you? CG or live-action?
