Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 Gets Announcement & Release Date
Cowabunga, dude. It looks like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are here to stay. On the heels of a $65 million opening weekend, Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies on Sunday announced plans for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, with a release date of June 3, 2016.
Michael Bay will return to produce with his Platinum Dunes partners, and Turtles writing team Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec are on board to pen the sequel script and executive produce. The statement did not specify whether or not Jonathan Liebesman would return to direct.
“To know moviegoers are embracing the Turtles with such enthusiasm is everything that we and all our filmmakers have been hoping for,” said Paramount chairman and CEO Brad Grey in a statement. “We are thrilled with this weekend’s result, the enduring power of this franchise, and the opportunity to make another one.”
