Well, this is not a surprise so much as it is just discouraging to hear, but, after scoring a $65 million opening weekend, it appears that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is going to be a thing.
As Deadline reveals, the movie has not only been announced, but it has been given a release date as well. Expect to see the sequel in theaters June 3, 2016. Oh good, the day after my birthday. Original screenwriters Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec are returning, as is producer Michael Bay. It is unclear, however, if Jonathan Liebsman will come back to direct. But don’t be surprised to hear him coming back. I mean, what else would he be doing? Fishing?
While I clearly was not a fan of the movie, it appears that there are some that, despite its numerous flaws, did have fun with it. So, if they are looking forward to this and this makes their life a little brighter, more power to them.
