Paramount scored a strong hit final yr with the fashionable and witty Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, and the studio already has a sequel to that one effervescent away in a cauldron of ooze, scheduled to land in 2026. Yet it clearly feels there may be room to additionally revisit the characters in live-action kind, and to take the idea in a darker, grittier and altogether extra violent route, organising an adaptation of well-liked IDW comics title Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin.

Turtles comedian co-creator Kevin Eastman and Tom Waltz wrote the guide primarily based on an older story by Eastman and his co-creator Peter Laird, whereas the artwork got here courtesy of Esau and Isaac Escorza, Ben Bishop and Eastman.

A pitch-black story of dystopia, homicide and vengeance – so you recognize, not for youths — The Last Ronin is ready in a totalitarian future New York the place Shredder’s grandson has offed three of the turtles and Splinter utilizing synthetic ninjas. The surviving teenage mutant swears bloody revenge and enacts it utilizing his and his fallen brothers’ weapons (in case you have been questioning, the comedian guide retains the survivor’s id hidden for some time).

Tyler Burton Smith, who is aware of a bit about chaos and vengeance because of writing the 2019 Child’s Play and the upcoming Bill Skarsgård-starring motion pic Boy Kills World, is on script responsibility right here, whereas former DC Films boss Walter Hamada is shepherding the film through his firm and a take care of the studio. So… sure, darker than the unique Nineteen Nineties live-action variations and even the Michael Bay produced mid-2010 entries.

In associated studio information comes phrase that the Scary Movie franchise goes the reboot route through Paramount’s buy of Miramax. No phrase on director or solid but, however it’ll shoot this yr.

And Damien Chazelle has managed to make it off the director’s naughty step after the huge money-loser that was Babylon, with Paramount nonetheless satisfied the person who made Whiplash and La La Land can knock out one other winner. He’s arrange a brand new movie from his personal script and will likely be determining the solid with the intention of capturing this yr. Little is understood about it past rumours — and we stress that is all they’re for now – that it may very well be set in or round a jail.
