Briefly: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hasn’t even made it through its first weekend at this point, but according to Deadline, Paramount has just confirmed that a sequel is in the works.
As much as I hated on the new turtles film back when the character designs and the first trailers arrived, I’m hearing from countless comic book and TMNT fans that the film is a lot of fun (albeit a bit messy). I didn’t get a chance to head to the theatre this weekend, but I’m now looking forward to watching the film sometime next week.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles screenwriters Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec will return for the sequel, as will producer Michael Bay. It’s unknown at this point, however, whether director Jonathan Liebsman will return for the feature.
The as-yet-untitled sequel will hit theatres on June 3th, 2016.
