'Mortal Kombat' Director Kevin Tancharoen Wants a R Rated 'Ninja Turtles' Movie

Mortal Kombat: Legacy director would love to make an R rated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles flick!

Today FearNet sat down with Mortal Kombat: Legacy director Kevin Tancharoen about the new series that can be seen HERE. He goes onto talk about the first seasons origins stories, hoping to make a third season and the upcoming movie! He also mentions that he would love to make an R Rated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie someday:

Lets just say he is definitely a child of the 90's! 

:: About the upcoming Feature Film::

You’re attached to direct a new Mortal Kombat feature film.  How is progress coming along on that?
It’s going very well!  We have been developing the script for the past year and a half, two years, we feel good about the script where it’s at.  Right now we’re just determining the appropriate budget for the film and where to shoot it, location wise.

:: About Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ::
Hypothetical question time: if you were given unlimited resources, unlimited crew, and unlimited time, and no one to make happy but yourself, what’s your dream project?

Oh my god, that is a hard one!  You know, if it was only myself to serve, I would make my rated R version of Ninja Turtles.

Really?  Going off the Eastman/Laird stuff?
Yeah!  I mean, I just want to do what was in the original comics.  Like, I think Eastman and Laird, though they went off and became very successful and I was a big fan of all of the cartoon series and the films, I think the Ninja Turtles was pretty dark.  Even the tone of the first feature film…that was very dark, that wasn’t a kid’s movie!  It was a pretty adult film and I was shocked when I rewatched it that they got away with that back then because that could never happen now.  So would one hundred percent want to do like, my rated R version of Ninja Turtles…with the suits.  To be honest, I would wanna do a new Ninja Turtle prosthetic, animatronic head, suit.  I’ve always wanted one.  You know, I’m sure the CG will look significantly better and hold up to today’s standard, but I’d still love to build the suit.  I dunno, maybe it’s a childhood thing.
