Paramount announces Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel

2014-08-11 21:00

Los Angeles  - Paramount Pictures is to make a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel.

The studio has only just released Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - starring Megan Fox, Will Arnett and William Fichtner - and early success at the box office has convinced Paramount to make another flick based on the popular TV series.

Adam Goodman, the president of Paramount's film group, said that launching a new take on the Turtles "was a daunting task because as fans of them ourselves we felt a great responsibility to ensure audiences were going to experience everything they loved about the Turtles, while also getting to see them brought to life in a way they had never been seen before".

He added: "The result exceeded our high expectations and the response to the film is beyond great, making it all the more fun to get started on the continuation of their story."

Early box-office figures show that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - which is yet to be released in the UK - raked in nearly $100m over its opening weekend.

Paramount has already confirmed that Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec will once again write the new movie, with the studio announcing a release date of 3 June 2016.
