‘TMNT’ Update – Michael Bay To Feature Krang, Beebop and Rocksteady; Nickelodeon Sets Cartoon Premiere Date

- 07-09-12Film, TV Posted by NickBungay

Just when we all thought that Micheal Bay was a safe distance from that dreaded Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, he comes crawling back from the sewers. While the project itself continues to be held back (thank God), a copy of the Bay-produced script made its way to Latino-Review’s El Mayimbe and he released news that somehow went unnoticed for nearly an entire month!

How we ever managed to miss something like this remains a mystery, but according to El Mayimbe’s Twitter this version of TMNT written by Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec

…makes up for Micheal’s name being attached to something held so dear to us older nerds, right? Well if that last tweet made up for all the disappointment you were expecting then this next one may possibly blow your mind:

No Tokka, no Rahzar and no Vanilla Ice, but Bebop & Rocksteady, the mutated henchmen of Shredder. Just those two names alone makes this nerd want to see the movie. But keep in mind that this is the script rumored to be part of the reason the entire production was halted. So while we wait to be disappointed in the next few years we can always look forward to watching Nickelodeon‘s new animated version of our friends and their “turtle power” this September. Check out all the details in the jump.

Funny or Die F**ks You Up With an R-Rated ‘Rugrats’

- 01-18-12Funny Videos, WTF? Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

I remember last year when Funny or Die posted a remade, live-action Captain Planet starring Don Cheadle, and how the site of the titular hero dropping the MF-bomb struck uncomfortably close to upsetting happy childhood memories. And then there was this…

Today, Funny or Die gives Rugrats a, shall we say, darker treatment. You know that when the trailer says straight-up that  “Your childhood memories will be raped” that it will be 100 per cent certifiably bad ass. Time to duck and cover as Michael Angarano (The Forbidden Kingdom), Alia Shakwat (Arrested Development) and Mae Whitman (Her?) bring the Rugrats to horrifying life.

Be warned it is red band, and there will be blood.
