'Ninja Turtles' to film at Adirondacks ski area

Posted: Updated:

TUPPER LAKE, N.Y. (AP) - Turtles like lakes, right? But do they ski?

The Adirondack Daily Enterprise reports (http://bit.ly/15A3rNY ) that the filmmakers producing next year's "Ninja Turtles" movie will find out when they film some scenes at the closed Big Tupper Ski Area in Tupper Lake.

Paramount Pictures is remaking the popular 1980s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It is tentatively scheduled for release in 2014.

Village Mayor Paul Maroun says the movie company needed a closed ski resort and Big Tupper fit the bill. The ski mountain in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains has been closed because of financial problems.

Up to 80 people are expected to work on the shoot, which begins next week.
