This casting call went up on, a website setup to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and the live-action adaptation of TMNT that is gearing up for production, shooting for a 2011 release.

So if you’re a serious martial artist, and live in the Los Angeles area, this is something to really try out for.

Get all the details in the release below.

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.
