It seems like only 3 months ago that the internet was all aflame due to the events known as Turtlegate. That infamous stretch of time after Michael Bay‘s announcement that his Turtles maybe ninja, but they wouldn’t be mutant or teenage.
What we do know about the reboot is that it will be done with the same stunningly realistic CGI that was seen in Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes. We also know that it will be directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath of the Titans) and writing duties are shared between Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol).
Now The Province is reporting rumors that production companies in Vancouver are gearing up for filming to start soon shooting for a December of 2013 release date.
But wait, there’s other news! Cutting through the the fog of mystery, MTV News found a very credible source in former 90’s rapper Vanilla Ice. The MTV ‘reporter’ bluntly asked Vanilla if he was connected with the reboot “I can’t say anything, ” Mr. Ice said smiling, “I know that they’re not from the sewers now. They’re aliens now or something.” The way he said it could lead you to suspect that he is in fact part of the film in someway, it was with a with a coy douchey sort of grin. It also could mean that he’s just a douchebag and was just really happy someone was pointing a camera at him and giving him attention.
You can make the call for yourself, video of the interview is up after the jump.
