Sequel to the 1990 film in talks!?!

Hey, did anyone else see the article just posted over at screenrant about a new tmnt sequel to the 1990 film, one that will ignore the other sequels? I was kind of surprised to see that. I wonder if it will come true.

"Wants" and "is making" are two different things, PK.

Also, glad to see you around again!

I know, that's why I said, 'I wonder if it's true' meaning I wonder if the negotiations they speak of in the article will come true.

Good to see you again too, man!

If they make a TMNT reboot movie retelling the shredder battle/origin, I won't buy a ticket.

Yeah and Ryan Reynolds wants Deadpool 3, but unless these people actively negotiate a deal, it won't happen. There's probably less incentive for Paramount to make TMNT IV than there is for Disney to make Deadpool 3, making it could flare up interest in movies they don't own, which is why any future TMNT movie will be connected to something they already own (if at all, probably not).

Meh, you are probably right.

Won't happen, BUT that's about the ONLY TMNT movie I'd be interested in watching, at this point.

I confess, I more or less loathe the "Halloween" model of, "Please just ignore the dozen or so other movies in this series that you already paid money and many hours of your life watching, absorbing, and sometimes even falling in love with. We're lazy writers and we'd rather not clean up any spilled milk, so VOILA, now none of it counts anymore." By definition it is the single laziest thing you can do outside of a shot-for-shot remake such as Van Sant's "Psycho". And it does, unavoidably, on some level disrespect the fans who actually like some of those movies we're now asked to pretend didn't happen. Why get invested in ANYthing, then, if it can all be wiped out at the stroke of a pen when some new CEO takes over the studio and gets bored one day? It's annoying.

I remember when "Superman Returns" did it, probably the FIRST one to do it, and it was considered a novel idea but plenty of people still called "shenanigans". Superman III and IV were terrible, though, so they got a pass, and it was probably for the best, as while not everyone loved "Returns" it was infinitely better than the movies it replaced in the official canon.

That said... objectively, there's still been only one GOOD TMNT movie, and that's the first one. The rest are all objectively pretty weak and a few are outright terrible, and I don't wanna hear about all the childhood nostalgia for TMNT II because that is a BAD MOVIE, it's just funny if you saw it as a little kid first, and I get that, but it's NOT GOOD and I'm not in the mood to hear otherwise right now. Just accept that it's only "good" if you're a kid or kid-at-heart, and let's move on.

Since the first TMNT movie was the only good one, this is a rare case where I would be all in favor of this kind of thing. Go ahead, throw out TMNT II, III, and god DAMN it please throw out those BayTurtles movies, and give us the movie we deserved but never got, a REAL sequel to the 1990 film. Like Superman Returns, it couldn't possibly be any worse than what it would replace, so sure, why not?

I doubt it'll happen, though, because I so rarely get what I want. But IF it did, then sure, I'd be up for it. I mean, why not? They tried (and failed) everything else.

I wonder if they’d ignore either 3 or 2007. Would it take place now or sometime ago? Would they actually use Krang and the Technodrome this time?

I think Nick would be open to it if the Seth Rogen one is the only one in the works. They’d probably like to get in on the popularity of that movie anyway.

Revivals of old series are a big thing at the moment.

Edit: Oops didn’t see the last paragraph about the Halloween way. I don’t know about ignoring SOTO or 3. I think you can make a perfectly good part 4 without those getting in the way. Just don’t bring up those events. You don’t have to erase them.

Unless they want to bring back Shredder but if he can survive being crushed in a garbage truck he could survive being crushed in Super form too.

Not too unlike "so and so actor wants to play Wolverine."

Meaningless.

They talk about it more in this video: https://forums.thetechnodrome.com/sh...ad.php?t=63226
But yeah, it really feels like it's something they "want", and not something they "can". They say it will be a direct sequel to the 1990 with the original actors (how?) forgeting the other movies.
And then again, it's ScreenRant. The only good thing from those guys is Pitch Meetings

Someone should pair them up with those "Dawn of the Ninja" guys.

But seriously, I'm at least glad they are kicking up dirt. Perhaps it will lead to a director's cut release or Nick taking a hint regarding the future of the movies.

It's not something I'm necessarily opposed to, but I don't think it would happen. I think it might be better just to start fresh. But if it did happen, and maybe got Steve Baron and the Henson company onboard, it would be neat to see.

I would literally cut off and sell my legs for science IF we could get a proper TMNT 2 and then they made a sequel to this film like every other year. 1990 remains one of my fav. films of all time! I love these characters and this NYC is my NYC, not the gentrified version of today!

That said, I DON'T SEE IT HAPPENING.

I’ve got people calling me a troll on Facebook because I keep replying that this is 100% never happening.

This is 100% never happening and I hate that this nonsense was published and now we have to deal with idiots who are going to keep repeating it as truth for eternity.

This is BS and you need to stop repeating this stupid headline.

Oddly, I was chatting with somebody about something like this on Deviantart not long ago. My idea for it would require not throwing out the existing sequels, though, since it would involve that scepter McGuffin thing from III being responsible for the Turtles' disappearance about 25 years ago (when they're around 18 or 19, to justify the Teenage in the title) and their sudden arrival in modern, gentrified New York along with whatever bad guy they were fighting at the time.

They would team up with an older April and Casey, and probably some new younger sidekicks, to face Karai and a decrepit but not dead yet Shredder. Shades of Cobra Kai, with a hint of The Force Awakens. Only with more nunchucks. Even in Britain, because it's allowed now...!

I liked the TMNT '07 flick, for what it was. That movie, to me, is like Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. It's a solid, entertaining flick that isn't a "definitive" story as much as representative of one of the many adventures outside of the career-defining events of Raiders (TMNT '90) and Crusade (SOTO).

I never know what to make of TMNT III. I think I've sat through it twice in my life.... definitely once. I think twice. Maybe when I got it in the Blu-Ray set again. Strange movie.

I couldn't bring myself to watch Bay's Hoodrat turtles, although I did buy the sequel because it was an early 4k disc. The Fred Wolf elements in that movie helped push me through that one. I've watched it once.

Imagine a drug-addicted Casey Jones portraited by Koteas in all his modern-day baldness, an aged Judith Hoag's April turned to a lab assistant after her TV career went down and the introduction of Baxter Stockman and his mousers. All this while the turtles deal with a City at War scenario with fights all over the city and factions. In the last scene Karai arrives in NYC.
