Paramount Pictures is moving forward with a sequel to Teenage Mutant Ninjas Turtles, and they’re looking to hire Earth to Echo director David Green to direct it. The studio is currently in talks with him to take on the challenge.
Jonathan Liebesman directed the last film, which I thought was absolutely awful in almost every way. I did not like that movie at all, and I’m a huge fan of the Ninja Turtles! It made $464 million at the box office worldwide, though, so it has an audience that buys in to the terribleness.
Michael Bay will be back as a producer on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 along with his Platinum Dune partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form.
There are no plot details at this point, but the movie is going to be scripted by Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec, who both worked on the script for Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, which was a great flick. Unfortunately, they are teaming up with the guy who made Earth to Echo, which was kind of disappointing.
Maybe the sequel will be better than the first one, but I’m not going to hold my breath. I remember that time that I thought the G.I. Joe sequel was going to be good. Boy, was I wrong!
I suspect that the cast of the movie will return to reprise their roles in the sequel. Did anyone like the last TMNT movie, and is anyone excited for a sequel?
