Latinoreview was the first to report the news on the Ninjas... Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to be exact. Nickelodeon has purchased the rights to the turtles for $60 million. This is a total package for Nickelodeon. They get movie, TV, video game and merchandising rights to everything TMNT.
Nickelodeon announced a new CGI TV show to start in 2012, similar to the movie TMNT. The movie we told you about a few months ago, will also be released in 2012.
Personally I love the Ninja Turtles. I grew up on them and look forward to anything they put out. I do worry it's going to be campy, like Ninja Turtles 3 was. But if it stays dark, much like the first film in the live-action trilogy, it should be a hit!
