‘Wrath of the Titans’ Director Gets ‘Ninja Turtles’ Next
, director of Battle: Los Angeles
and Wrath of the Titans,
has agreed to direct the new live-action re-imagining of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
from Paramount and Platinum Dunes.
Live action and the ambiguous label "re-imagining" is all the scoop Variety
has on the film, which is based on the beloved comic and cartoon series that spawned three live-action films between 1990 and 1993 and a CGI-animated feature in 2007.
Considering the carnage in both Liebesman's films thus far (that's a guess based solely on the "Wrath" trailer), the director and Platinum Dunes would seem a match made in heaven; it's Michael Bay
's production company after all. Bay will produce along with Brad Fuller
and Andrew Form
and André Nemec,
the duo behind Paramount's holiday hit Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol
, wrote the script
. They also penned the magician heist film Now You See Me
for Louis Leterrier, who coincidentally directed Clash of the Titans.
