I loved the Foot! When I was a kid watching the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon, and later on the live action films, I thought they were so amazing. I’m excited to announce that Mirage Studio’s developing TMNT remake will include the infamous ninja clan. As we’ve previously reported the new film will focus on the origin of the four main characters. That means the original villain Master Shredder and his Foot crew won’t be far behind. According to /Film, an open casting call has gone out for professional martial artists to audition to be a member of underground organization for the upcoming film.
More details after the jump.
If you want to be a part of the Foot Clan in the new live action Ninja Turtles movie, you’re going to have to strut your stuff in front of some martial arts icons. The audition judges will include Ernie Reyes, Jr., who actually starred in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze, Jason Morgan from the American Taekwondo Association, and 2011 TMNT movie producers Scott Mednick and Galen Walker. Here is a description of what they’re looking for as well as the audition location.

If you’ve got some hidden ninja skills this might be a great opportunity for you to show your stuff. If I was any good at martial arts I’d go. I love Donatello, Michelangelo, Leonardo, and Raphael but who wouldn’t want to be a member of the Foot for one day? I would love the opportunity to say the words “ninja vanish” and disappear without a trace. Wouldn’t you?
What do you think of the Foot Clan returning for the TMNT reboot?
