Two unsuccessful attempts weren't enough for Paramount to leave the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles alone, and pizza lovers are preparing to conquer the big screens once again. The Hollywood Reporter informs about it.|
As it became known to the source, the Paramount management invited Andrew Dodge to write the script for the next film about Raphael, Leonardo, Donatello and Michelangelo. For Dodge, the world of blockbusters is still something new, and the author's track record has only one work - the comedy "Bad Words" with Jason Bateman. But he will be supported by people who are well acquainted with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: the project is produced by the same team from Platinum Dunes, represented by Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Bradley Fuller.
It's unclear at this point what the producers are planning to do with the revamped two-film franchise. The new film can be both a sequel to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 and a complete reboot of the film series.
The first part grossed $ 493 million worldwide, but the sequel was a real disappointment for Paramount, earning only $ 245 million. However, all this happened before James Gianopoulos became the head of the studio. According to the source, his top priority was to revise the major's plans and reorient existing franchises. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a recognizable brand, and the unwillingness to part with it is understandable.
