Movie bosses are marking The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' 25th anniversary by taking the amphibian crime fighters back to the big screen.

Movie bosses are marking The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' 25th anniversary by taking the amphibian crime fighters back to the big screen.

The turtles were back in the limelight this week, as Tribeca Film Festival organisers celebrated their 1984 creation with a special bash in New York City.

The Empire State Building was lit green last night in their honour, and a special screening took place for fans who were invited to turn up dressed as Leonardo, Michaelangelo, Raphael and Donatello.

And a new movie is set for release in 2011, according to Variety.

'Superman Returns' producer Scott Mednick is behind the project, and he reveals the new film will focus on the original 1980s Turtles comic books.

Mednick told Variety: "The original dozen comics created by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman are some of the best source material one could hope for."
