Ninja Turtles Moves to June 2014

teenage mutant ninja turtles Do you think the Heroes in a Half Shell could take on Godzilla? We may never know for certain now, as Heat Vision reports Paramount Pictures has shuffled the Michael May-produced Ninja Turtles from May 16, 2014 — the same date as Legendary Pictures’ giant-monster reboot — to June 6.

Based on Kevin Eastman-Peter Laird ’80s comic turned pop-culture juggernaut, Ninja Turtles has already experienced its share of problems, from fan ridicule over changes to the characters’ origins to a production shutdown in June that led to the opening being moved from December 2013 to the previous date of May 2014.

Directed by Jonathan Liebesman (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, Wrath of the Titans), the CG/live-action hybrid appears to be back on track, with Transformers star Megan Fox cast just last week as April O’Neil.

Filming is expected to begin in April.

    so many things wrong with this— CGI turtles? DTV chainsaw movie director? Megan Fox? Michael Bay? At this rate- I’d prefer a movie version of the 2012 series over a live action movie (cuz at least that would be good)

    Too bad. I was waiting for the chance to not and go see it. :)

    Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning was actually a theatrical release. It may have been DTV quality, but it wasn’t DTV.
