New Writers Onboard 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'

Two new writers have just been hired to write the script for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot coming from Michael Bay and Platinum Dunes.

After the writing team of Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec revived one Paramount franchise with their script for Mission: Impossible --Ghost Protocol, the studio has tapped them to rewrite another franchise Paramount is hoping to resuscitate. They will next go to work on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The scribes just did a rewrite of Now You See Me, which Louis Leterrier will direct for Summit Entertainment. The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot is being produced by Platinum Dunes partners Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form. The scribes are repped by WME.

Thanks to Deadline for the scoop.
