Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Sequel Announced
TMNT reboot given go ahead for second movie after strong opening weekend...
A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel is definitely coming in 2016, Paramount has announced.
The TMNT reboot took an estimated $65 million in its opening weekend in the US - and according to Deadline, director Michael Bay has already been signed up for a second movie.
Adam Goodman, Paramount president, said: “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.”
He added: “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.”
There’s no news yet on whether Will Arnett and Megan Fox - who put her long-standing feud with director Michael Bay behind her for the movie - will return for the sequel.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opens in UK cinemas on 17 October, with the sequel given a provisional release date of 3 June 2016.
