Yeah, that could be quite entertaining. I'm a bit surprised to see that they're doing a new film, since the whole franchise seemed to have sunk without trace recently, but maybe it's tied in with the general 1980s revival... Mind you, Peter David did some very good stories for a TMNT comic a year or so ago, which could bode well for this.

I also wonder whether this is related to the recent Daredevil/Elektra films. The original comics were a fairly blatant parody of Frank Miller's ninja stories, e.g. DD had a mentor called "Stick", while the Turtles learnt from "Splinter", and his big enemy was a ninja organisation called "The Hand" while the Turtles were up against "The Foot".

I also must confess that I was trying to get hold of the song "Turtle Power" (by Partners in KRYME) on iTunes recently, and it wasn't available, so maybe they'll unearth a copy if this film is successful :)
