Thanks to an economical $34 million budget, the recent “TMNT” CG-animated feature took in nearly three times that cost in its theatrical release – and is expected to do loads more on DVD.
Suffice it to say sequel possibilities have seemed likely, and according to Mirage Studios’ Steve Murphy at The 5th Turtle, they just got even likelier this week.
“As of two weeks ago Imagi Entertainment (the TMNT movie animation studio) informed Mirage Studios that there was a 50-50 chance of a CGI film sequel. Last week they upped the odds to 70-30 in favor of a sequel, as talks between Imagi and their distribution partners Warner Brothers and the Weinstein Group seem to be heading in a positive direction.”
Hopefully we’ll get a decent story and villains next time around.
