Quick Movie Update

I know a few people have been wondering what the Nick buyout means for the previously announced, much anticipated movie produced by Scott Mednick and Galen Walker.

John Fusco should have a script ready by the end of this month, based on the Mirage treatment given approval in September.

Scott and Galen are still moving down their original path (awesome!) and the release date has simply been pushed back a year.

HOWEVER…

Given that the Ninja Turtles are now owned by a studio (Paramount), there is a possibility that Paramount could make some directional changes, depending on what their plans for the TMNT are, but as of now, everything remains the same.
