That's quite a different story, I don't think that information is public. If I had to guess, I'd say no, Paramount probably just handed the project off to a studio they trusted. I seriously don't think Platinum Dunes has much of a say on TMNT.

In case they do have some agreement with Paramount, it'll probably expire in a few years and the license is up for grabs. If not, there's probably some workaround and I don't think there's anything preventing them from putting new writers and directors on it, doesn't have to be made by the same people just because their logo is slapped on the movie.
