Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pushed Back Two Months

There’s been a bit of a change in scheduling as Paramount Pictures has now delayed the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot’s release. Originally scheduled to arrive on June 6, 2014, the film will now hit the big screen on August 8, 2014.

The new date puts Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles up against Gary Shore’s Dracula, starring Luke Evans, and Lasse Hallström’s The Hundred-Foot Journey, starring Helen Mirren.

Directed by Jonathan Liebesman, the film features a screenplay by Josh Appelbaum, Andrew Nemec, Art Marcum, Matt Holloway and John Fusco, and is based on the characters created by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman. The film stars Megan Fox in the role of April O’Neil, Alan Ritchson as Raphael, Jeremy Howard as Donatello, Pete Ploszek as Leonardo, Noel Fisher as Michelangelo, Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick, Danny Woodburn as Master Splinter, and William Fichtner as Shredder.
