‘Ninja Turtles’ to Shoot at New York Ski Resort This Month

Ninja Turtles will be shot at a New York ski resort later this month Paramount and Platinum Dunes' live-action/CGI hybrid reboot Ninja Turtles will shoot at the Big Tupper Ski Area in Tupper Lake, New York for three days later this month. While a majority of the movie will be shot in New York City, the production needed a closed ski resort for a portion of the shoot.

The three-day shoot will begin next week at the resort and a local golf course driving range, for scenes which include a helicopter landing on a driving range. The ski resort, which is operated by a non-profit organization, decided last fall that they didn't have enough money to open the resort for the 2012-2013 ski season, which was ultimately a factor in why the production chose to shoot there. Other movies that have been filmed in the area include the teen horror film CLONED: The Recreator Chronicles.

Jonathan Liebesman is directing from a screenplay by Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, Art Marcum, and Matt Holloway. Megan Fox stars as the turtles' reporter friend April O'Neil, with Alan Ritchson portraying Raphael. Michael Bay is producing through his Platinum Dunes production company.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was released August 8th, 2014.

        Michael bay produced some decent flicks like Transformers, Friday the 13th , The island etc. So It's either gonna be hit or miss for this movie. Megan... I hope she just has a cameo er something . Or maybe she'll be Bimbo extra #4 in some scene. Mocap Turtles is a cool Idea . If they made Costumes it would look cheesy . I mean Look at avatar or The hobbit . That was mocap and they looked amazing! I will wait until more actors are confirmed :D And @dowhatwedo I can Totally see workaholics guys doing TMNT haha and Karl as Casey Jones !

            tmnt was a main component of my childhood...reading michael bay, megan fox, and motion-captured turtles involved in this project really upsets me.

            ...but i'll remain optimistic until i see some footage.
