Film director JOHN WOO is to resurrect the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES in an animated film.
The Chinese MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 2 (2000) director promises to return the turtles to their "darker, edgier comic book roots" in the as-yet untitled movie, which is likely to cost up to $56 million (GBP43 million).
A cartoon series of the turtles was a big hit during the late 80s and early 90s, during which period several live action films were also made. (KW/WNWCCB/KMW)
