‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2′ Will Feature Bebop and Rocksteady

10 December 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

The list of things wrong with the recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film is pretty long. Way down on the list is that the film’s villains really weren’t that interesting or formidable. Well it seems new director Dave Green and screenwriters Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec are looking to at least solve that in the June 2016 sequel. Producer Andrew Form recently […]

The famous reptilians are coming back for a second outing and The Wrap is reporting that Earth to Echo director David Green has been tapped to helm the second installment in the newly rebooted franchise.

Michael Bay is producing the sequel alongside his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form as well as Scott Mednick and Galen Walker. Stay tuned for additional details.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 Finds a Director

5 December 2014 7:25 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Paramount Pictures is moving forward with a sequel to Teenage Mutant Ninjas Turtles, and they’re looking to hire Earth to Echo director David Green to direct it. The studio is currently in talks with him to take on the challenge.

Jonathan Liebesman directed the last film, which I thought was absolutely awful in almost every way. I did not like that movie at all, and I’m a huge fan of the Ninja Turtles! It made $464 million at the box office worldwide, though, so it has an audience that buys in to the terribleness. 

Michael Bay will be back as a producer on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 along with his Platinum Dune partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form

There are no plot details at this point, but the movie is going to be scripted by Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec, who both worked on the script for Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, »

David Green To Helm "Ninja Turtles" Sequel

4 December 2014 9:04 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

David Green ("Earth to Echo") is in talks to direct the sequel to this year's live-action meets CG-animated "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" film reboot at Paramount Pictures. Green would take over from Jonathan Liebesman who helmed the first film, which has grossed $478 million worldwide.

Paramount is moving fast on the sequel and wanted to take a new approach as well. As a result, Liebesman is out due to his commitments to the ten-part event series "Shannara" clashing with the accelerated production timeline of the 'Turtles' follow-up to get it into cinemas by 2016.

Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form are returning as producers, while Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec are penning the script. Megan Fox and Will Arnett are expected to reprise their roles from the first film.

'Earth to Echo' Director Boarding 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2'

4 December 2014 4:55 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Shortly after the reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hit theaters, Paramount Pictures announced that they were putting together a sequel and it was being fast-tracked for release on June 3rd, 2016. Now Variety reports the film's director Jonathan Liebesman will not be back to direct, and the studio is now in talks with David Green, who directed this year's family friendly sci-fi adventure Earth to Echo, to be at the helm of the sequel. Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol writing duo Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec are back for scripting duties, and hopefully they do a better job on the story this time. More below! As of now, there's no word on who will return from the first film, but most of the principal cast should be back. You may not have heard a lot about Earth to Echo, since it wasn't in theaters for that long, but it's actually a decent sci-fi adventure. »

'Ninja Turtles 2' Gets 'Earth to Echo' Director

4 December 2014 4:08 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 has found its director in David Green, best known for this past summer's Earth to Echo. While Jonathan Liebesman was expected to return, Paramount decided to try a new approach, and held a director search these past couple of months. While there is hope that this sequel may be better the the lackluster reboot, it should be noted that Michael Bay is still on board as a producer.

Even though it has a strong fan base and has been around for decades, the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles still proved to be a surprise hit at the box office, as some feared this take on the franchise was destined to bomb. It earned an estimated $464 million worldwide. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 will still be produced by Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form. Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec are writing the script. No »

‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2′ Finds Director

4 December 2014 4:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Earth to Echo” director David Green is in talks to direct “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2,” sources confirm.

Jonathan Liebesman directed this summer’s “Turtles” pic, which ended up grossing $464 million worldwide, but Paramount wanted to take a new approach and decided to open the directing search.

Michael Bay is producing along with his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form. Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec are penning the script.

Plot details are unknown at this time, and neither is it known who will return from the original pic, though its expected that Megan Fox and Will Arnett would reprise their roles.

The Turtles franchise is one of Paramount’s top properties following its success this summer — so much so that Paramount dated the sequel for 2016 before even locking down a director or cast.

As for Green, the job is a huge win for the director who, prior to “Earth to Echo, »

Paramount In Talks With A New Director For Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

4 December 2014 3:10 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Wrap reports that Earth to Echo director Dave Green has entered talks to direct Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 for Paramount Pictures, Nickelodeon Movies and Platinum Dunes. They're said to be in the early stages, so things could change, but the first movie's director Jonathan Liebesman clearly won't be making a return. Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec are however returning to write and executive produce the sequel which is produced by Michael Bay. Now, we mentioned the first movie being embraced, but that's only correct in terms of financial success. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has only a 22% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but grossed close to $500 million worldwide. Green looks set to direct Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson starrer Lore (not Lobo), so we'll have to wait and see if he ends iup taking the job. What do you think? »

Nonso Anozie Trades Game Of Thrones For Zoo

27 November 2014 2:07 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Game Of Thrones actor Nonso Anozie has moved from his portrayal of Xaro Ahoan Daxos on the hit show, to a recurring role in the CBS adaptation of James Patterson’s novel, Zoo. The stand-alone book, co-written with Michael Ledwidge, was published in 2012 to positive reviews – many of which cited the perceived plausibility of the plot.

The earth-bound science fiction story centres on scientist Jackson Oz, who is systematically dismissed by his colleagues in the fields of ecology and biology after focusing years of research on animals attacking humans. Believing there to be an increasing pattern, Oz travels to Botswana, where he manages to survive a large-scale lion attack. Teaming with fellow survivor, and former diplomat, Chloe Tousignant, he works to uncover why the animal world has begun what is seemingly a united effort to remove humans from the ecosystem completely.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles review: A shell-shocking cowa-blunder

13 October 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Jonathan Liebesman; Screenwriters: Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, Evan Daugherty; Starring: Megan Fox, Will Arnett, William Fichtner, Whoopi Goldberg; Running time: 101 mins; Certificate: 12A

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is vastly superior to any of its producer Michael Bay's Transformers movies. But that's like saying having the latest U2 album automatically downloaded onto your iTunes without consent is preferable to Bono kicking down your front door, strapping you into a straight jacket and forcing you to listen to his band's latest offering while slapping you around the face with The Edge's beanie hat every time you nod off.

There's little to keep one awake during this latest effort to transform those pizza-loving turtles into big screen icons, as this uninspired production is clearly led by marketing imperatives rather than storytelling ones. It should have been renamed Tmnt: The Secret of the Snooze.

At least moments of outrage form some kind of engagement, »
