"Mission Impossible 4" Writers Hired for "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" Reboot

Posted: June 8th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Mission Impossible 4" Writers Hired for "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" RebootSubmit Comment
Josh Appelbaum and Andrew Nemec recently wrote the script for Paramount's "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol," the fourth installment in the franchise. The studio has now brought the writing duo back to reboot another franchise, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles."

In October of 2009, the rights to the "TMNT" franchise went on sale and Nickelodeon picked them up for $60 million. Around the same time, Paramount made a first look deal with Platinum Dunes. The producers, including Michael Bay, began meeting with writers and hired the writing team of Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man, Punisher: War Zone) to write the script. Apparently things didn't work out with the Marcum and Holloway.

The last "TMNT" movie was the first to not be live-action. It was released in 2007 and grossed $95 million in worldwide ticket sales on a $34 million budget.

I'm keen for this reboot. Paramount should show some balls and make this real violent and gritty.

Because the very first TMNT movie was just such a total piece of sh*t, right?

Andre Nemec is an underwhelming writer. Sorry, didn't like Life on Mars, didn't like Happy Town, and I thought Alias fell off the rails after about season 2. I'm curious about Ghost Protocol because Brad Bird is a great animation director, we'll see how he does with live action, but again, Nemec's dialogue generally annoys the f*ck out of me.

Hollywood will keep rebooting these films over over as long as ticket sales for these reboots stay high (which they will)... was a big fan of the orginial as a kid, I hope they don't destroy it too much
