Just one week after Michael Bay announced that Transformers star Megan Fox will play April O’Neil in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the controversial reboot has now been given a slightly later release date in 2014. Hit the jump for details.
according to Deadline, Paramount Pictures have today announced that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, Ninja Turtles, will no longer be released on May 16th, 2014. It will instead open in theatres three weeks later, on June 6th, 2014.
Not a huge delay, but no specific reason for the shift has been revealed. Its major competition now is Jurassic Park 4 which is set to be released the following week.
Michael Bay is producing the Jonathan Liebesman helmed movie which will see the turtles brought to life with the use of motion capture CGI. Megan Fox is currently the only confirmed cast member. How do you think she could fit the April O’Neil’s character?
