Peter Laird has been talking up the live action reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and it sounds like he’s taken a leaf out of Spike Jonze’s book.
Turtle creator Laird’s comments about the ‘hybrid’ effects sound remarkably similar to what Jonze set out to achieve with Where The While Things Are.
"So here we go — another live action film! As you may recall from some of my previous comments, our initial discussions regarding the next film had to do with what we were calling a 'hybrid' — live action with realistic Turtles rendered in CGI and blended in,” Laird Said.
“This new idea — which, frankly, I am VERY pumped about — will have actors and stunt performers in full Turtle suits for filming in live action. As of right now, there is talk of using CGI to do 'face replacement' for the suits so that we can get those great, expressive faces possible with CGI."
Which is great news as far as we’re concerned. We weren’t big fans of the last, CGI, Turtles movie. It was rubbish.
