Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles creator Kevin Eastman responded to the recent rumor that a new live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film was in development.

The Last Ronin is a “lost” story from 1987 that Eastman recently rediscovered. The story will take place in a future New York City and follow a lone surviving Turtle as they take on a “seemingly hopeless mission to obtain justice for his fallen family and friends.”



Eastman responded to this rumor on Twitter saying, “THIS IS NOT  HAPPENING.”


He added, “We have spoken with the powers that be, Nickelodeon and this is 100 % fake. Would be cool – but NOT happening.”
