Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Reboot Delayed Until 2014
It’s a bummer for everyone’s favorite heroes in a half shell.
The Hollywood Reporter broke news today that the much talked about reboot of the franchise by Michael Bay has now been pushed to 2014, reportedly due to issues with the script. Here is an excerpt from the article:
Paramount Pictures has shut down a planned reboot of the Ninja Turtles franchise, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. The effects-heavy film, which was in pre-production in Vancouver, was set for release in December 2013. That date is being pushed to May 2014, according to sources.The issue is said to be the script. Paramount has delayed several big movies from this year to 2013, including G.I. Joe: Retribution and Brad Pitt’s World War Z, leaving it with a spotty pipeline for the current year. Now it has halted work on its planned holiday movie for 2013, temporarily laying off pre-production staff and informing those prepping the film that the work stoppage is “indefinite,” according to sources. Another source close to the production says the movie has been pushed 10 weeks.
