TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES 2: Sequel Greenlit with Michael Bay

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 Moving Forward. With a strong opening under its belt for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles this weekend, Paramount Pictures is moving ahead with a sequel film. The sequel will see the return of director Michael Bay as a producer and most-likely the voice actors of all four turtles and Splinter will be back as well. Like the original, the sequel film will again be written be Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec.

On the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (often shortened to TMNT or Ninja Turtles) are a fictional team of four teenage anthropomorphic turtles, named after four Renaissance artists, who were trained by their anthropomorphic rat sensei in the art of ninjutsu. From their home in the storm sewers of New York City, they battle petty criminals, evil overlords, mutated animals, and alien invaders while attempting to remain isolated from society.

The characters originated in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book before their expansion into a cartoon series, films, video games, toys, and other general merchandise. During the peak of the franchise’s popularity in the late 1980s through the early 1990s, it gained considerable worldwide success and fame.

On Jonathan Liebesman‘s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a 2014 American science fiction action comedy film based on the franchise of the same name. A reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film series, the film is directed by Jonathan Liebesman, and stars Megan Fox, Johnny Knoxville, Pete Ploszek, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, Alan Ritchson, Danny Woodburn, Tony Shalhoub, William Fichtner, and Will Arnett.

The film was announced shortly before Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Peter Laird sold the rights to the franchise to Nickelodeon in 2009. It was produced by Nickelodeon Movies and Michael Bay’s production company Platinum Dunes, and distributed by Paramount Pictures.
