Just like Marvel, who announced a “Guardians of the Galaxy” sequel just as “Guardians of the Galaxy” was released, Paramount is not giving fans a chance to breathe.
It was announced yesterday that a sequel to “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” (TMNT) is already in development! Perhaps it’s because they were so pleased with its USD93.7 million global debut over the weekend? So much so that it beat out Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy“, which dropped in its second week in theatres. Surprisingly.
And you know how hard it is to hold off against not just “Guardians of the Galaxy” but any Marvel movie.
Paramount’s Film Group President Adam Goodman said in a statement upon the sequel announcement:
Launching a new take on the ‘Turtles’ into the feature film world was a daunting task because as fans of them ourselves. We felt a great responsibility to ensure audiences were going to experience everything they loved about the Turtles, while also getting to see them brought to life in a way they had never been seen before. The result exceeded our high expectations and the response to the film is beyond great, making it all the more fun to get started on the continuation of their story.
Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes will again produce the film while screenwriter Josh Appelbaum & André Nemec are set to write the script.
Currently, the TMNT sequel has a projected release date of 3rd June 2016. You guys best be ready for turtle nostalgia and “Cowabunga!” part 2. Meanwhile, hit this to read our review of TMNT (the first one) and this for all the things you didn’t know about the turtles.
