TMNT Movie put on Indefinite Hold!!!

The Upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been the 4th victim of yet another delay by Paramount Pictures...

Even though pre-production was underway in Vancouver, with a Christmas 2013 release date planned, the Paramount Pictures has put "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" on indefinite hold and pushed the release date back to possibly May 2014. No word on what exactly were the issues behind the scenes.

Paramount has already delayed 3 other movies that were slated for released in 2012 and pushed back into 2012: "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters," "World War Z" and "G.I. Joe: Retaliation", it seems studio executives at Paramount have decided to actually read the script of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," and they don't like what they see. They really don't like it, so thus the reason for the delay.

It seems that a movie about four talking turtles with martial arts skills from an alien planet (or something), with a sewer rat for a sensei, could possibly have story problems.....ya, Thank You Michael Bay for destroying my 80's cartoons.

It looks like Michaelangelo, Donatello, Raphael and Leonardo will have to wait to get another shot at eating pizza on the big screen once more. And it looks like super-fans like myself, who were worried by what Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes had in store for our heroes on the half shell, can breathe a sigh of relief. For now....

We’re all here for the same reason: to share information, to discuss all things pop-culture, to better ourselves as writers, directors, cinematographers, producers, photographers... whatever our creative pursuit happens to be.

Criticism is valuable as long as it is "constructive", but personal attacks are grounds for deletion; you don't have to agree with us to learn something. We’re all here to help each other, so thank you for adding to the conversation!
