The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will return for their fifth big-screen outing in 2011. The live-action film will focus on the origins of sewer-dwelling heroes Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael (and Splinter too!) and will remain true to the original 1980s comics. According to Variety, Peter Laird, co-creator of the TMNT comics, said the pic may employ face replacement technology, which would allow the turtles to be much more expressive.
