The Foot Clan Wants You!
Would you like to join the horribly-named, wildly inept Foot Clan Ninja for the next live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie? If you live near or can get to Los Angeles, then you can bring your elite ninja skills and audition this Saturday to join the ranks of the foot. Angry Zen Minion Devin Wolfe sends us the deets:
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, in association with Mirage Studios, 4Kids Entertainment and TMNT Productions will host an open casting call for martial arts experts to audition for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, hitting theatres in 2011. We will select the best from the auditions to be a part of the stealth TMNT nemesis, the Foot Clan.
The casting call is part of the 25th Anniversary Shell-ebration of the “Heroes on a Half Shell” in 2009, and a great way to bring together all schools of martial arts to become part of the new generation of TMNT.
We’re reaching out to ask for your participation in spreading the word to your associates, friends and family within the martial arts community. Details of the event are below, and final rules/regulations will be posted shortly.
When: Saturday, July 18, 2009 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Where: Hollywood & Highland
6801 Hollywood Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90028
*At Grand Staircase
Who: Judges to include actor and martial arts expert Ernie Reyes, Jr., Jason Morgan from the American Taekwondo Association, and 2011 TMNT movie producers Scott Mednick and Galen Walker.
Audition: 30-Second Martial Arts Demo (Single Person Only)
No metal, sharp or bladed weapons of any kind allowed
Photo and updated resume with contact information
Fourteen years or older (under 18 must have adult permission for audition)
I bet they get a lot of XMA kids to audition. I could never work up the nerve to do a real flip. If I lived in California and I had more confidence in myself, I would probably go and check it out. I still have love for the Turtles even if I think the franchise has gotten a little out of hand recently. Nothing beats those very first comics Eastman and Laird released waaaay back in the 80’s.
Anyway, good luck to all you ninja hopefuls out there! If any of you actually hit up the auditions, please let us know how they go!
