The Michael Bay-produced, Jonathan Liebesman-directed Ninja Turtles movie was in pre-production last June when Paramount Pictures put on the brakes and sent everybody home. A rewrite was ordered, apparently with instructions to make the film a less expensive a proposition.
Seems that the fixer-uppers did a good job, as Production Weekly, who are very much on the money with these things, have tweeted the following:
Principle photography on TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, is scheduled to begin this April in New York.

New York. April. How Turtles.
I wonder if the rewrite has in any way addressed the fan discord? Will the Turtles be getting their Mutant back?
And no, I don’t mean Corey Feldman…
