After quite a while without any updates, we're excited to hear that the Turtles are still coming back…but we are NOT feeling this director choice!
We've just learned that Battle: Los Angeles director Jonathan Liebesman is in negotiations to direct Paramount's upcoming live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot…and we're not so sure he's the right guy for the job.
It's nothing personal at all, but the guy's directing track record includes Darkness Falls and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. Unless they're looking to delve into VERY dark territory with this Turtles movie, he just doesn't seem to fit the bill.
Here are the other details that have been revealed on the TMNT reboot thus far:

More Ninja Turtles news.
Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon have signed on Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form to produce Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a reboot of the live action film series launched by New Line back in 1990.
Last October Nickelodeon acquired the global rights to the entire Turtles franchise for $60 million.

With the exception of its passable, extended opening, we think the world can agree that the Friday the 13th remake was pretty craptastic!
Studio bigwigs must have finally gotten some sense, and have nixed the proposed sequel, originally set to be released later this year!
According to producer Brad Fuller, "It is dead- not happening."
The recent horror remakes have been disasters! We're holding out hope for the new Nightmare on Elm Street, but that's all it is - hope!
R.I.P Jason Vorhees - for REALZ this time!!
