New Movie Postponed... Release date pushed to May 2014

http://www.aintitcool.com/node/56447

"The heroes on the half shell are getting put on the shelf indefinitely.

Paramount has pulled the plug on the Jonathan Liebesman-helmed reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, pushing its release back indefinitely... and, no, it's not for 3D post-conversion and/or more Channing Tatum.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Paramount, already gun shy with the delays the studio is facing with G.I. JOE: RETALIATION and WORLD WAR Z, is willing to take its time with NINJA TURTLES in order to iron out what it feels are script problems. Rather than rush it out there in order to make its December 2013 release date and potentially damage the future of the franchise with a poor showing, Paramount is learning their lesson of putting forth a subpar product that may come back to bite them in the ass later. Better late than never.

In the meantime, Platinum Dunes will have to chill with the reboot, and, once the script is ready to go, NINJA TURTLES will move forward again... but when that will be is right now anyone's guess."

Your Thoughts?

Someone should change the thread title. It's definitely still happening.

NINJA TURTLES PUSHED BACK TO MAY 2014

Another week, and another Paramount movie in trouble. First there was G.I. Joe 2‘s plot problems leading to reshoots and a release date delay. Then there was World War Z‘s problematic production and required reshoots and third act revision. Now it’s the Michael Bay-produced Ninja Turtles reboot. Paramount says it has pushed back the pic’s start date by 10 weeks in order to cut the budget $10M to $20M down to $125M. That means the release date also will push back: from Christmas 2013 to May 16, 2014. Initially, Paramount hired the Iron Man writing team of Art Marcum and Matt Holloway for close to $1 million to revamp Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for a fast-tracked live action feature film to be released in summer 2012. At the time, the studio was looking at this as its next huge franchise like Transformers. Then the Jonathan Liebesman-directed live action-CGI combo’s release date was pushed to Christmas 2013. Now Paramount tells me it’s pushed again to May 16th, 2014 — presuming that the studio’s cost target is achieved.

The only problem is that May 2014 is already bursting at the seams with big releases, including the Planet of the Apes sequel, the Spider-Man sequel and an as-yes-unrevealed Marvel Studios film. Interesting that Deadline says the budget is 125 million. Another article over at the Hollywood Reporter describes the film as being "effects heavy". Really hoping it is just temporary.

Basically, Paramount have got problems. I don't think anyone can deny that.

Maybe Bay's name will detach itself from this by the time it comes back.

And the Nicktoon will decide if the world is ready for more TMNT right now.

After reading the thread I'm glad they still plan on releasing the movie. The thread title made me almost go bonkers! I guess I'm fine with it in that they want to make it as good as they feel it can be. We already love the characters that are going to be in this movie so the script is the most important thing. I guess I can wait a little longer....again as long as it's getting made.

If anyone's got a good suggestion, we can update the title.

Personally, if they're slowing things down to improve the movie quality, it will be worth the wait...

Change "Shut Down" to "Postponed" or "Suspended" maybe?

I'm not upset about this at all. This is a good thing as they're fleshing out script problems. I'd rather have them delay it and come out with a good movie than release it now and deliver a horrible movie. I can wait.

I actually liked walle, not as much as TMNT. On the other hand How to train your dragon wasn't my favorite, but it was still good.

Acid, This is just a sketch he did, i doubt this is for the movie. I think he was just having some fun.

As for the TMNT movie, I know it wasn't the greatest, but I still wish there was another. The reason is, they hinted at shredder, which would be better than the monster mumbo jumbo (Which I still thought was good) My opinion of course.

How is Channing Tatum connected with TMNT? Did I miss something?

That was a knock against Paramount also postponing GI Joe 2, for 3D conversion and for adding more of Channing Tatum (they killed him off at the beginning, but now they're reshooting some stuff so he's in it more).

He's not, it's referring to GI Joe 2, were a rumor is they pushed back the film to add more Channing Tatum scenes.
