Ninja, Ninja, CRAP! Paramount Shuts Down ‘NINJA TURTLES’ Reboot; Release Date Change
A friend of mine was just talking to me about the Ninja Turtles reboot, we were rightfully defending it (check out: In Defense of: Michael Bay’s NINJA TURTLES). So it’s a shame that Paramount has shut down pre-production on the flick, while also pushing the release date from December 2013 to May 2014!
The Hollywood Reporter’s sources say the film has script problems, which is surprising since Kevin Eastman is one of the people working on the script and just so happens to be one of the original creators of the characters. Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath of the Titans) is directing the script by Eastman and Andre Nemec.
“[The studio is] temporarily laying off pre-production staff and informing those prepping the film that the work stoppage is ‘indefinite,’” say sources, who are expecting a 10-week delay.
