Weinsteins go Ninja
In the brothers' first studio partnership since they worked with Disney, the WeinsteinCo. will work along with Warner Bros. to distribute the all-CGI animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The movie is set for release in early 2007 and will be the first time the reptilian superheroes have appeared on the big screen since 1993. The three films from New Line in the early 1990s grossed over $256 million in North America. The new property will be grittier than the first films, pulling its atmosphere straight from the comic series. Kevin Munroe will write and direct the film. He's working on the screenplay in consultation with Peter Laird, who co-created the franchise.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles return
Imagi Services is set to try to revitalize the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise by turning it into a CGI-animated feature film. Kevin Munroe, a veteran in the animation industry, has been hired to write and direct the movie. The producers are looking to take advantage of the recent resurgence of the pizza-eating, crime-fighting reptiles, who have grown back in popularity since a new television series debuted three years ago.
