THR is reporting that the new Ninja Turtles movie has shut down preproduction.

The film, initially scheduled for December 2013, has been tentatively pushed back to May 2014. Preproduction that had been going on in Vancouver has been shut down for an indefinite time period. The issue is said to be the script, penned by Kevin Eastman and Andre Nemec, and I for one hope it’s to correct the mistake of Michael Bay’s alien announcement earlier this year. This marks the third movie Paramount has delayed this year, with G.I. Joe: Retaliation and World War Z both being pushed from this year to next.

    No surprise here.Paramount is busy on the side fighting over publishing copyrights with the Godfather creator Mario Puzo children claiming that they not only own the film rights but also the publishing rights as well.Paramount studio is one strange creature.The execs who work for that studio are the work ants to the head piranha who just wants to eviscerate anyone who tries to take what he believes rightfully belongs to Paramount.Now this delay.Big whoop I say and thank goodness.I feel for those who’ve lost their jobs over this nonsense.

    I think it was pushed back by the psychic wall of nerd-rage.

    Gotta agree with Adrianna here. I sense a great disturbance that will reverberate through the minds of nerds everywhere for years to come.
