Liebesman In Talks For “Ninja Turtles”

Jonathan Liebesman (“Battle Los Angeles,” “Wrath of the Titans”) is in talks to direct a live-action reboot of the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” franchise at Paramount Pictures and Platinum Dunes says Reuters.

Liebesman is one of three directors who had been under consideration for this new take on the popular comic book and television series which Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec (“Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol”) are scripting.

Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form will produce. The film would mark the fifth feature involving the characters following three live-action films in the 90’s and the 2007 CG animated film “TMNT”.
