Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film sequel announced for 2016

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are already making a splash in the US with their latest big-screen outing which has already made $28.7 million at the box-office.

But while us Brits are still waiting for the merry band of green turtles to show up in UK cinemas, Paramount have announced that the live action-adventure will be receiving a sequel.

The second installment has been green-lit with director Michael Bay (Transformers series) and several of his chief production members set to return.

On the decision, Paramount president Adam Goodman said:

“Launching a new take on the Turtles into the feature film world 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.

“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.”

The decision already seems a swift one given the new film’s mixed reviews as well as recent controversy over its Australian poster, which features an exploding building with the release date of September 11th on it.

The current film, which stars Megan Fox (Transformers series, Jennifer’s Body), Will Arnett (Blades of Glory, The LEGO Movie) and William Fichtner (Prison Break, The Dark Knight), is due out in the UK on October 17th.

As for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, that installment is scheduled for release on June 3rd 2016.
