TMNT Being Fast Tracked at Paramount

TMNT  Being Fast Tracked at Paramount

Deadline.com's Nikki Finke is reporting that Paramount has put the next Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie on the fast track

"I hear that Paramount has hired the writing team of Art Marcum and Matt Holloway for close to $1 million to reimagine the live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," she writes. "'The studio is looking at this as its next huge franchise, like Transformers,' a source just told me.... Paramount's Adam Goodman is fast-tracking and wants a first draft by October so the studio can take it out to directors right away. The speed is understandable since Paramount paid $60 million for the rights to make the movie."

The writing duo recently wrote a reboot script for Highlander, which Summit will produce and which will be directed by Justin Lin. Marcum and Holloway also wrote the first Iron Man.
