Personally, I’ve enjoyed the hell out of Paramount and Platinum Dunes’ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles live-action film franchise thus far, which kicked off on a fun note in 2014 and got even better with the cartoon-faithful Out of the Shadows in 2016.
Today, we’ve learned that another film is in the works.
Via THR, Paramount has hired Andrew Dodge (Bad Words) to write the script for what will presumably be the third installment in the existing franchise.
The site notes, “Both [of the previous two films] were made before the arrival of chairman Jim Gianopulos, who has made it a priority to clean up the studio’s slate and refocus its franchises. Insiders are hoping to bring a patina of quality as they relaunch the franchise.”
Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller will produce under the Platinum Dunes banner.
