Variety confirms talk from earlier in the year that a live-action 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' film is in the works.

Plans call for the movie to be released in 2011.

Scott Mednick, formerly of Legendary Pictures ('The Dark Knight', 'Watchmen') and currently polishing up 'Where the Wild Things Are' is producing. Galen Walker, who brought the heroes on the half-shell to the big screen in 'TMNT' a few years back  is also producing.  Peter Laird (co-creator), Gary Richardson, Frederick Fierst, Eric Brown and Napoleon Smith III are all executive producing the film.

Mednick says the movie will draw upon Laird and Kevin Eastman's original comics.
