It’s been a while since we’ve really heard much news from the new Turtles movie, but creator Kevin Eastman still seems to be super excited about the slow-moving project. According to him, the movie is well on it’s way and is going to drawn inspirations from movies like: The Avengers, The Raid, and Rise of the Apes.

I, for one, will always be a huge Turtles fan, so whatever they need to draw inspiration from; I don’t care. Just put a bunch of guys in suits who know how to do kung-fu. If you can get Corey Feldman to do the voice of Donatello, even better. Just give me a Turtles movie and do it sooner than later. Take a look at what Eastman has to say below.

“Three years ago, I started working on the John Fusco version, which was this awesome, awesome, awesome Batman Begins kind of take on the first movie. It was really interesting, but it was maybe a little too edgy for what Paramount wanted. It went through a couple of different versions before Michael Bay took it over and brought in Jonathan Liebesman to direct.”

He added, “Jonathan Liebesman is going to make a great film. From what I’ve seen of the script, it’s fantastic. Michael Bay has made some great and intense movies. We’re talking about being inspired by movies like The Avengers for scope and roots origin and The Raid: Redemption for fight scenes and Rise for the Apes as far as computer-quality style.”
