The film is currently casting unknowns for its titular heroes who will be animated using motion-capture techniques. No turtle-suits this time around, it seems.

Directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath of the Titans, Battle Los Angeles), the film was recently pushed back to 2014, although with casting beginning to take shape, hopefully there will be no further delays.

Ninja Turtles will open in theaters on May 16, 2014.
