    New Paramount film

    I'll split this into an indie thread when it gets a title.

    JUNE 20, 2018 11:59am PT by Borys Kit
    New 'Ninja Turtles' Movie in the Works With 'Bad Words' Writer (Exclusive)

    Paramount is ready to say "Cowabunga" once again.

    The heroes in a half shell are coming back for more pizza.

    Paramount is developing a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie and has hired Andrew Dodge, the writer behind the Jason Bateman comedy Bad Words, to pen the script.

    Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller will produce the feature via their Platinum Dunes banner. The company was behind the studio’s horror hit A Quiet Place.

    Paramount has made two Ninja Turtles movies based on the 1980s cult comic by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird that spawned a pop cultural phenomenon in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The first movie, released in 2014, grossed $493 million worldwide, while 2016’s installment, subtitled Out of the Shadows, showed the limits of the franchise with $245 million. Neither was a hit with critics.

    However, both were made before the arrival of chairman Jim Gianopulos, who has made it a priority to clean up the studio’s slate and refocus its franchises. Insiders are hoping to bring a patina of quality as they relaunch the brand.

    It’s all in the name: Ninja Turtles chronicles the adventures of four mutated turtles, named after Renaissance artists and in their teens, who protect New York City using ninja skills acquired from a humanoid rat.

    Dodge made a splash with 2014's Bad Words, a script that landed on the Hollywood Black List and was turned into a directing and starring vehicle for Bateman. Since then, the writer has worked on projects such as Space Jam 2 and O’Lucky Day, the latter of which has Peter Dinklage attached to star.

    Dodge is repped by CAA, Grandview and Gang Tyre.

    origins

    Cowabunga! Here is Dover's plan to honor its Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles origins
    Megan Fernandes
    Fosters Daily Democrat

    DOVER — Before becoming a world-famous franchise of cartoon series, movies and merchandise spanning nearly 40 years, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters began with sketches in Dover.

    Mirage Studios was founded in November 1983 by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird in a residence at 28 Union St., where they lived together and created the early sketches of what became widely known as TMNT. The home has since been demolished and the property is now owned by the Dover Housing Authority. One thing that remains is the maintenance hole cover in front of the property, a well-known symbol of the series as the entrance to the turtle's lair in the city sewers.


    The Dover Arts Commission hopes to install a unique historical marker on the maintenance hole cover in front of where Mirage Studios was founded and where the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were first created at 28 Union St. The house was demolished earlier this decade.

    Dover is looking to memorialize the city's ties with the TMNT comics through an artistic historical marker on a maintenance hole cover. The City Council endorsed the Arts Commission's concept plan at its June 7 meeting, so the commission can pursue the trademark rights needed to include original art honoring characters named after Italian Renaissance artists Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo.

    Dover resident James Lane proposed the idea to the city's Arts Commission, calling it "a part of Dover's hidden history that needs to be told."

    "I live nearby where Mirage Studios was, and often thought there should be a historical marker here but the house is gone," Lane said. "While on a walk I looked down and there was a manhole cover there and it was instantly very obvious to me that this is exactly how we should commemorate the site."

    How TMNT took off from Seacoast
    Long before Ralph DiBernardo owned Jetpack Comics & Games in Rochester, he was a teenager selling comics at the Newington Flea Market in the late 1970s, where a Walmart now stands. He said he befriended two of his regular customers, Eastman and Laird, who at that point were two artists living in Dover.


    Ralph DiBernardo, the owner of Jetpack Comics in Rochester, holds an advertisement used to premiere the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic at the Portsmouth Mini-Con event in 1984. DiBernardo, seen here at his store Thursday, June 24, 2021, befriended the creators of TMNT when they launched the comic they created at their home in Dover.

    Eastman and Laird printed their first comic book at a Somersworth shop in an initial run of 2,500 copies. One day they showed up and asked DiBernardo if he'd buy copies of their original comic "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" so they could repay an uncle in Manchester who loaned them startup money to print the first run of publication.

    DiBernardo bought 500 copies to help his friends. When he had difficulty selling them when he first opened Jetpack Comics in Portsmouth (before later relocating to Rochester), he cut up some of them to make advertisements. Some of those black-and-white early versions of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics would one day be worth $100,000 in mint condition, nearly 40 years later, he said.

    "Truth be told, I just wanted to support my friends, but I didn't believe that comic book would become what it is today," DiBernardo said.

    DiBernardo's Portsmouth Mini-Con convention in 1984 is where the first TMNT comic premiered, he said. Since then, the creators have gone back to visit him over the years at his shop and allowed him to do reprints exclusive to his store, including a TMNT cover that includes a rough sketch of Rochester's downtown, where Jetpack Comics stands today in the background.


    Pictures displayed at Jetpack Comics in Rochester illustrate the history behind the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles world, including the advertisement used to promote the series' Dover creators' first TMNT comic book at the Portsmouth Mini-Con event in the 1980s.

    DiBernardo said there are really two version of TMNT, the edgy ones in their first comics and the more kid-friendly version fans of all ages know and love today.

    "The original TMNT was gritty and geared towards a more mature reader," DiBernardo said. "Kevin and Peter loved comics like Heavy Metal and the original was influenced by that. Then there's the cartoon and the Archie Comics line, which is geared towards kids."

    Eastman and Laird have made special appearances at Jetpack Comics through the years at its Free Comic Book Day events. One year, more than 7,500 people showed up to Jetpack Comics for the chance to meet the TMNT creators, DiBernardo recalled.

    After the first issue came out, the creators moved around until they set up shop in Northampton, Massachusetts.

    The Seacoast and New England connections don't stop there, with other TMNT contributors later brought onto the project also having ties to the area. This includes Steve Lavigne, who once owned a comic book shop and art gallery called Shellback Artworks in Wells, Maine, that closed in 2016, and Massachusetts local Jim Lawson, who worked on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series and also co-created the series Planet Racers with Laird.

    "Peter and Kevin never forgot their history and where they started," DiBernardo said. "They always came back to the Seacoast and gave back to the community."

    City seeks to honor TMNT past
    When DiBernardo heard Dover was looking to promote the history of the early days of TMNT, he was immediately on board.

    He hopes to organize a convention and give away free TMNT comics.

    "I want to be a part of it because it's such a brilliant idea," DiBernardo said. "Dover is the home of one of the most important children's properties in the world, and it's time we recognized that."

    Linnea Nemeth, vice chairperson of the Dover Arts Commission, said the idea of commemorating Dover as the birthplace of the TMNT has been brought up before over the years, but the ideas never moved forward.

    "At the time we liked the idea but didn't know what the best way to memorialize it through a statue, plaque or other forms of art," Nemeth said. "This idea is spot on and is very fitting, given the prominence to maintenance covers in the storylines."

    Nemeth said the commission has big plans for this idea, and hopes that when the time comes to unveil the project, it can involve the city, community, the Dover400 committee and local museums in a city-wide celebration.

    "It's an exciting venture and ties in with our Dover 400 celebration," Dover Mayor Bob Carrier said, noting he would likely write a proclamation to honor the event and Dover's ties to the franchise.

    Lane estimated the cost to have a custom-made and locking maintenance hole cover could be a few thousand dollars. He anticipates that the cost will be covered by a crowd-funding campaign of TMNT fans and supportive locals.

    If the commission cannot get the rights to design the cover with original art, the commission has back-up plans to creatively design a text-only marker, Nemeth said.

    This project is one of the many Dover's Arts Commission has in the works.

    "We're not just looking at projects that acknowledge the history of our distant past, we're also looking at ones like this that give a nod to our more notable recent history," Nemeth said. "We're starting to incorporate a more diverse range of public art projects that people can connect with. Whether you read the cartoons, watched the series or you had the action figures as a kid, it's will resonate with a lot of people."

    R-rated? Intriguing...
    Live-Action, R-Rated ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Movie in the Works From Producer Walter Hamada (Exclusive)
    Tyler Burton Smith, who co-wrote the upcoming action movie 'Boy Kills World,' is penning the script for this high-body count tale.

    BY BORYS KIT
    APRIL 11, 2024 9:30AM

    'The Last Ronin' comic; Walter Hamada IDW PUBLISHING; COURTESY OF PARAMOUNT PICTURES

    After the success of last year’s animated hit film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, Paramount Pictures is keeping turtle power going by putting a new feature project into development.

    This one, however, will go beyond the realm of the all-ages material the long-standing property is known for and instead go into gritty, R-rated, territory.

    Paramount is developing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin, adapting a popular storyline seen in the recent IDW comics, as a live-action feature with the intent of making it for an R-rating.

    Tyler Burton Smith, who co-wrote the upcoming R-rated action movie Boy Kills World and who wrote the 2019 iteration of Chucky horror franchise Child’s Play, is penning the script.

    Walter Hamada is producing through his 18hz production company as part of his multiyear deal with the studio. Hamada is the former head of DC Films who rose through the ranks at New Line, where he oversaw the Warner Bros. division’s horror movies, including The Conjuring and It franchises. His 18hz banner is focused on making features in the horror genre.

    And Last Ronin is about as terrifying as a Turtles tale can get. Set in a totalitarian future New York City, the comic miniseries told of how the Turtles and master Splinter are killed off one by one, by the grandson of the villainous Shredder and synthetic ninjas. One Turtle manages to survive, barely, and vows to exact bloody vengeance. One trick of the book was that it wasn’t clear, for a while at least, which one of the Turtles lived, as the survivor had the weapons of all four.

    Co-creator Kevin Eastman and Tom Waltz wrote the comic based on an older story by Eastman and co-creator Peter Laird. Artists included Esau and Isaac Escorza, Ben Bishop and Eastman.

    IDW, the publisher that holds the license for the Ninja Turtles comics, put out the books between 2020 and 2022. The comics were an unexpected massive hit, with the collected trade paperback being the second-highest-selling graphic novel of 2023, per Circana BookScan.

    The comic book company recently released the sequel TMNT: The Last Ronin II — Re-Evolution, with the debut issue touted as being one of the biggest comics of the year, with more than 140,000 copies ordered.

    Ninja Turtles debuted as a black-and-white indie comic in 1984, parodying comics like Chris Claremont’s X-Men comics and Frank Miller’s ninja-focused work. A toy deal turned the comic into a generational touchstone in the late 1980s, abetted by a bright and cheerful animated series, followed by a hit live-action movie wherein the Turtles were played by actors in suits.

    Over the years, more animated series came at audiences like twirling nunchucks while Paramount, which landed the rights to the property via Viacom in 2009, put out two live-action movie produced by Michael Bay that starred Megan Fox and Will Arnett in the mid-2010s.

    Mutant Mayhem, produced by Seth Rogen’s Point Grey, brought back a respectable sheen to the property by giving it a cool outsider point a view. Critics and audiences liked what the saw, with the animated movie grossing over $118.6 at the domestic box office. A sequel is now in the works.

    IDW is also relaunching a mainline Ninja Turtles comic series timed to the title’s 40th anniversary.

    Smith is repped by WME and Grandview.
