After having seen off all opposition at the US Box Office this weekend the Michael Bay produced reboot of the ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ has secured a sequel, which is being penned in for summer of 2016.
According to Deadline Michael Bay will once more produce the film.
The film performed well in its opening weekend taking an estimated $28.7 million, attracting families and adults who grew up with the animated series.
Producers Andrew Form and Brad Fuller are also set to return, as well as screenwriters Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec.
Paramount president Adam Goodman said: “Launching a new take on the Turtles into the feature film world was a daunting task because, as fans of them ourselves, we felt a great responsibility to ensure audiences were going to experience everything they loved about the Turtles, while also getting to see them brought to life in a way they had never been seen before.
“The result exceeded our high expectations and the response to the film is beyond great, making it all the more fun to get started on the continuation of their story.”
The Nickelodeon Movies project has a provisional release date of June 3, 2016.
