TMNT Get a New Director for the Sequel
The forthcoming sequel to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film may have a new director. Dave Green could be helming the film as the director of the first “surprise hit” entry is moving on. He has his sights on working on different projects.
The remake/reboot of the TMNT series took a lot of people by surprise. Should it have?
As pointed out by Darius Fisher, is it really accurate to say the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle projects are a “surprise success” when they always make money? The recent TMNT film did huge box office. People were surprised. They were also surprised 20+ years ago when the original films did massive box office for New Line Cinema. The comic book industry was also shocked at all the money the books made on an independent label.
Can we stop being surprised about the success of the Ninja Turtles and just accept them as a pop culture phenomenon?
The best way to continue this phenomenon, film-wise, is to just make another entry in the series. Dave Green, the director of the fun kid’s film Earth to Echo, is being considered for the project. He has not signed on officially because there is a Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson kid’s film project Green is in talks to direct.
