The franchise, which began as a black and white comic book series in 1984, rose to tremendous popularity and now Paramount joined with Nickelodeon and have decided to turn Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles into a movie. The movie will be directed by one of the most popular directors in the movie industry Michael Bay. Bay said this at a Nickelodeon event in New York, “When you see this movie, kids are going to believe, one day, that these turtles actually do exist when we are done watching this movie. After a few setbacks Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is now set for a May 2014 release and this is your chance to submit your application to be a extra or a stand in role in the 1980’s classic.
The full script for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has not yet been released but a few rumors have been circling that it includes a character named Colonel Schrader, the head of a secret military operation run by an army nicknamed “The Foot”. Also Casey Jones and April O’Neil are now dating and in high school and have reached a crossroads, as Casey is an unambitious slacker, while April is becoming an intern for CBS. Casey is also described as being the protagonist of the film,not the turtles. The Turtles crack a variety of “updated” pop-culture jokes, making references to Kermit the Frog, cell phones, and the Kung Fu Panda movie. Casey and the Turtles eventually travel to Dimension X, where the four reptilian warriors discover they are members of a Turtle-like extraterrestrial race.
This would be a great opportunity for any fan on the original comic or for anyone that is looking to break into the acting industry. Castings for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have not yet started but the casting directors are now taking applications. Please keep checking back for more information on casting dates and times.
