First up, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be back on the big screen. In 2011. In live-action mode. (You can read about it here.)
So awesome. Having grown up on TMNT, anything that they do I absolutely fall in love with. I remember going to see the first movie after school with a couple of my friends and I saw blown away by it, even when I had no idea what the phrase "blown away" even meant. And I couldn't be more excited that it is going to be live-action. Don't get me wrong. I loved the CG movie from a few years ago, and I thought the comic book tie ins that they had was a stroke of genius. But, in my mind, nothing beats live action.
News number 2: casting continues on Michael Bay's remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street, and they have finally cast Nancy. An unknown actress named Rooney Mara won the role.
I hadn't heard too much about this move until two weeks ago when they announced that Jackie Earle Haley will be playing Freddy. After seeing Watchmen, I can definitely get behind this casting. Haley played a great psycho as Rorschach, and I can't wait to see him as Freddy.
Even though this is a remake, I would see this film. Michael Bay has gained a little more respect from me after what he did with transformers, so I would like to see his take on Elm Street.
