MOVIES: Ninja Turtles delayed


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.
