‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2’ Will Have Bebop and Rocksteady; ‘Earth To Echo’ Director In Talks
  |  @   |  

Say what you want about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but the film grossed $477 million worldwide and currently holds the number 12 spot on the top grossing films of 2014.

Of course with numbers like that, you knew Paramount was going to follow that up with a sequel. While it was first thought that Jonathan Liebesman, who directed the last film, would return to direct Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, it’s being reported that the studio is now in talks with Earth To Echo helmer David Green to direct the sequel. More after the jump.

‘Ninja Turtles’ Reboot: See What Krang, Bebop, and Rocksteady Might Have Looked Like (Images)
  |  @   |  

When it comes to Ninja Turtles movies Shredder is almost always the villain, despite there being plenty of other options to choose from such as Krang, Baxter Stockman, and Rat King. There’s also good henchman options aside from just using members of the Foot, such as Bebop and Rocksteady.

This was no different with the latest take on the characters, the Jonathan Liebesman-directed and Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that was released this past August, where William Fichtner played the infamous villain. But some new concept art has found its way online and shows what Krang, Bebop, and Rocksteady might have looked like had they been used in the final movie. There’s also concept art for different versions of the turtles and Shredder than the not-so-popular designs used in the movie.

You can see the artwork below.

Platinum Dunes. The production company created by Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, and Andrew Form came on the scene in 2003 with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a remake of Tobe Hooper’s classic 1974 film. Since then, they’ve rebooted just about every popular horror franchise you can imagine: The Amityville Horror, The Hitcher*, Friday the 13th, and A Nightmare on Elm Street.

Somehow – through some sort of covenant with the Devil, I assume – Platinum Dunes obtained the film rights to Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the beloved franchise created by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman. Enter Paramount Pictures, who produced recent “name-brand” disappointments like G.I. Joe: Retaliation, World War Z, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, Transformers: Age of Extinction, and Hercules. I say disappointment not because these movies were failures at the box office, quite the opposite actually. They’re just not good films. They’re lazy, generic blockbusters in a world where movies like X-Men: Days of Future Past, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and Guardians of the Galaxy are thrilling audiences and critics alike.

  |  @   |  

The final film panel of San Diego Comic-Con’s Hall H on Thursday belonged to Paramount Pictures, which presented Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Project Almanac, Hercules, Hot Tub Time Machine 2, and Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.

As the room darkened the voice of SpongeBob Squarepants was heard over the speakers, searching for Hall H. Voice actor Tom Kenny then came on to cheers from the crowd as he introduced footage from the film The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, in which Spongebob and crew have to leave the ocean to become superheroes to save Bikini Bottom. This was followed by a video retrospective of the history of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, from the earliest sketches to the cultural phenomenon that followed.
