Fans will recall that eariler in the week news went round the web that 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' creator Kevin Eastman said the new movie was to be live-action instead of CGI and would be a "back to the basics" re-invention, a la 'Batman Begins'.

Well, Steve Murphy, writer of many a 'Ninja Turtle' non-film project has a different take on things.

"...complete nonsense and entirely untrue [emphasis his]," is what Murphy writes of Eastman's comments on his blog The 5th Turtle. The writer does not elaborate beyond that.

Interestingly, the original posting at Eastman's 'Heavy Metal' message boards has been deleted.
