If you live anywhere near L.A., the new live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie (to be released in 2011) is having an open casting call in Hollywood for members of the Turtles’ arch nemesis – The Foot Clan! Check out the audition posting after the jump.
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.

Awesome, except I have no martial arts skills, I’m probably too old and I don’t live anywhere near L.A. But hey, this does confirm that the Foot Clan will be in the movie!
If you remember from an earlier post in April, TMNT co-creator Peter Laird talked about how he wants the new movie to be an origins story which would combine computer effects with practical effects to create the Ninja Turtles and remain true to the spirit of the original comics.
