That didn't take long...
You knew this was coming. Following its strong $65 million opening weekend, Paramount Pictures have announced that a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel is on the way. The studio has already set a release date for the film, aiming for June 3, 2016. That puts it in the same weekend as Sony's animated Seth Rogen-starrer The Sausage Party, but more significantly up against X-Men: Apocalypse and Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass in both films' second weekends.
THR reports that it's not clear whether Jonathan Liebesman will be back to direct, though Michael Bay and Platinum Dunes will once again produce the film. Screenwriters Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec will be back to write the film as well.
