New live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie is in the works

The prequel craze has given us movies about the origins of many classic franchises: Star Trek, Batman, James Bond, and now, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Producers have announced that they’re working on a live-action movie that will tell how Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael came to be pizza-eating, sewer-dwelling talking turtles who fight evil. There has been no announcement about whether the movie will explain why they’re all named after Renaissance painters.
