It looks like Paramount has finally learned their lesson the very, very hard way. After scuttling three movies slated for a 2012 release into 2013 -- "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters," "World War Z" and "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" -- it seems studio executives have decided to actually read the script of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," and they don't like what they see. They really don't like it.
Even though pre-production was underway in Vancouver, with a Christmas 2013 release date planned, the studio has put "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" on indefinite hold and pushed the release date back. No word on what exactly were the issues behind the scenes, but it seems inconceivable to us that a movie about four talking turtles with martial arts skills from an alien planet (or something), with a sewer rat for a sensei, could possibly have story problems...right?
But the effects of the cancellation/hiatus on the pic have further reaching consequences. »
