Remember TMNT, the 2007 franchise rehash of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles '80s comics and TV show and '90s movie trilogy? Nah, me neither. But that doesn't mean the Ninja Turtles are forgotten. Further blurring the line between reptile and bug, this currently inoperative "vehicle" is no doubt promoting a second (third?) rehashing of the qualified turtle empire. Title considerations include a pseudo feminist reworking, Teenage Mutant Ninja Princess Turtles; a cross-species rendering, Teenage Mutant Ninja Squirrels; and the immensely topical Ninja Turtles: Pakistan Adventure. One thing's for sure, the film will definitely be shot in Albuquerque and the setting will definitely appear indecipherable from anywhere else in America.
