TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Reboot Could Start Production As Early As This Year

The first two live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies were very poorly received and fans will no doubt be excited to learn that work on the upcoming third instalment is progressing rapidly...

Well, it seems as if the Michael Bay era of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies is at an end...maybe. As you may recall, the critical and commercial response to Out of the Shadows led to Paramount Pictures hiring Andrew Dodge (Bad Words, Space Jam 2) to pen the screenplay last June. 

While we learned at the time that the studio was planning to reboot the franchise through this third instalment, Michael Bay, Andrew Form, and Brad Fuller remain producers through their Platinum Dunes production company.

That's not to say Bay will have much in the way of creative control, of course, as he was also a producer on Bumblebee and look what a departure that was from his Transformers movies! While the Heroes in a Halfshell will no doubt be brought to life with CGI again, the studio will have hopefully taken on board the fact that fans hated the massive, hulking versions from the past two films. 

With that in mind, we may get both a more faithful take on the characters along with a less goofy tone (and an April O'Neil who isn't played by Megan Fox in what was one of the most baffling casting decisions in recent Hollywood history). This also means saying goodbye to Stephen Amell's Casey Jones!

Now, the producers of A Quiet Place have confirmed that production on the reboot could start as soon as this year and while they couldn't say anything about a director or cast, they did note that "we have dates we are trying to hit, that's all." They also point out that like the aforementioned horror movie, this new take will be all about a family trying to stick together.
