Grab your nunchucks because Paramount Pictures is planning a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Sequel
is planning on making a sequel to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
movie. While it may sound extremely early to announce a sequel four days after the release of the first feature film that was not well liked by critics, producers are moving forward.
According to Variety, Paramount Pictures is looking towards a part two to be released in 2016.
Paramount Pictures was so pleased by “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’s” $93.7 million global debut this weekend that it said it is moving forward with plans for a sequel to the franchise reboot. [...>
Part two will land in theaters on June 3, 2016, with Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes returning again as a producer and screenwriters Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec (“Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol”) coming back as screenwriters. [Variety]
After spending $100 million to produce Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
it is hard to believe that Paramount did not plan on making a franchise out of the feature film series. However, nowadays feature films that are not well liked by people are still being picked up, recycled and distributed by production companies. For example, Michael Bay's 'Transformers: Age of Extinction
" was hated by critics and people alike. However, the feature film is the first 2014 movie to make $1 billion. At the end of the day Michael Bay knows what people want to see and that's explosions, explosions, Megan Fox and some more explosions.
