Michael Bay-Produced TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Pushed to August 2014
The TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES have been delayed.
The move was made in order to give the TURTLES a little box office Breathing room. Disney-Pixar's THE GOOD DINOSAUR is set to open on May 30, while Fox and DreamWorks' HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2 hits theaters on June 20.
Will Arnett and Megan Fox star as the human leads in the studio's live-action/CGI mashup, helmed be Jonathan Liebsman and written by Evan Daugherty. Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes is also on-board with Paramount. The TURTLES feature Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, Jeremy Howard as Donatello and Noel Fisher as Michaelangelo.
The original animated film followed four turtles who are turned humanoid through contact with radioactive slime, and trained in martial arts by their humanoid rat master.
