Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles delayed reboot

Fans of those crime-fighting sewer-dwelling amphibians will probably not believe it has been 20 years since the live-action movie was released, and we are intrigued to see what the advances of technology can do to in a movie reboot of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. According to reports, we were expecting this film to release in June 2014, but it seems the Michael Bay movie has encountered delays.

The good thing is delay is not as long as we initially thought, with talk of the movie being pushed back a couple of months, as Cinema Blend document a recent Twitter feed by Exhibitor Relations informing readers that the delay will be pushed from the original schedule of June to August.

We haven’t heard any official news that problems are being experienced, although some may suggest this new date is mainly due to it clashing with a number of other releases. It will be produced by Michael Bay’s production company Platinum Dunes and Nickelodeon Movies, and distributed by Paramount Pictures, with a cast including the likes of Megan Fox as April O’Neil and William Fitchner as Shredder.

Pete Ploszek, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard and Alan Ritchson, will be playing Leonardo, Michelangelo Donatello and Raphael, respectively, while Danny Woodburn will portray Splinter. Therefore, we can expect the summer of 2014 will be once again awash with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles merchandise bringing the popularity of those pizza-eating amphibians back to the forefront.

Were you a big fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles when they first arrived on the scene? We can’t wait to see how they will be portrayed in next summer’s movie reboot.
