Last May, it was revealed that Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes production company were going to reboot the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles live action movie franchise, so potential April O’Neils everywhere were told to get their white t-shirts ready for Ferarri-washing detail. Only 9 months later – or one aspiring model’s secret shame sex pregnancy – Bay and Co. may have found a director for their latest uninspired reboot.
According to Variety:
“Battle: Los Angeles” helmer Jonathan Liebesman is in negotiations to direct Paramount’s live-action reboot of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.”
Plot details are being kept under wraps except that it would be a new reimaging of the famous comic and cartoon series.
Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec penned the script.
