That might not be a bad idea at all. Might take some legal foot work, but it would certainly be a way to introduce people to Rifts, especially older generation folks who loved the Turtles but never played anything.


Does Palladium still have any rights from their turtles game books?

I don't think they ever lost their rights to produce the game. Besides, didn't I read something in one of the newsletters this past year about a new chapter for the Turtles?

So, figure the lady ninja from the movie is in contact with some intellegence to resurect the Shredder(so it can get a foot hold in their world). She inlists a young girl(a summoner) to open a rift for the intellegence. Things go wrong, they all fall into the rift and end up on Rifts Earth. The girl and the turtles end up affoul of the Coalition, the lady ninja finds the Federation of magic under direction of the intellegence( with her here its foot hold on her world is becoming tenuous). The girl is set to be exicuted but the turtles catch the attention of Dr. Bradford( random mutations like the turtles would be invaluable to his research). A sympathetic officer aids the turtles in escapeing and rescuing the shifter( and some other captives probably). The mad dash is now on to get the turtles back home befor the ninja lady gets her and meets up with the intellegence. Afterward the Shfter decides to stay and the officer and the others are set for the sequal alone with out the turtles for bigger story lines.

I actually really like that idea. We can only hope whomever is actually writing the script for this thing is as imaginative, or moreso, as that.

I guess that would hinge on recieving the cooperation of the Turtle's "people". A script on that lay out would be easy to write. The dynamic of the turtles would have to be maintained, but the dog boys and how they live and are treated would play a piviotal point. the Coalition officer having a "best buds" dynamic with a dog boy(a pet/bestfriend boy and his dog feel) till talking with the turtles opens his eyes to what his "best friend's" life is really like, and how human he is underneath.

Oh, there's all manner of hidden meaning that could be placed into this, for sure. However, I think a core for the story should be laid down, first, something of a base, and once the basics are built in, figure out how much time remains for the film -figure about one page of script per minute of film, or about 120 pages to allow for up to 30 pages or so to be cut out- and then write in anything that could fill out the remainder of the 120, and you'll be good.

It will probably feature a steampunk Techno-Wizard (and yes, most of my TWs are steampunk), a Cyber-Knight, a Ley Line Walker/ Shifter combo (since it's a movie, you know it will happen), and probably a CS Military Specialist.
Might have a Juicer, who will likely die about mid-way through.
Maybe a dragon... we can hope.

Glitter boy would be neat... HOWEVER, on screen, all of them will look alike so it'll be really hard to follow the battles if there's a bunch of them... sort of like the ol star war movies were all the ships and foot soldiers all look identical for the most part - that's a bad thing. both good guys and bad guys need to be unique for good movie ratings/character build up. Also, YOU NEED TO BE ABLE TO SEE THE ACTOR'S FACES to get emotional depth in a movie.

Not really.
Darth Vader provided plenty of emotional depth.
In fact, the first time he showed up, I said, "I want to grow up to be THAT guy!"

Cool voices help. And of course the mystery of his identity and his obvious badassery can be appealing.

My vote - Cyber Knight, but you have to distinguish him or her from a Jedi. Dog Boy, played by Andy Serkis. Glitter Boy.

This problem in movies has been solved by Iron Man. You can show there faces in the helmet. It works.

Emperor Prosek should be the star of the RIFTS movie.
