<i>Ninja Turtles</i> Moves to June 2014

Do you think the Heroes in a Half Shell could take on Godzilla? We may never know for certain now, as Heat Vision reports Paramount Pictures has shuffled the Michael May-produced Ninja Turtles from May 16, 2014 — the same date as Legendary Pictures’ giant-monster reboot — to June 6.

Based on Kevin Eastman-Peter Laird ’80s comic turned pop-culture juggernaut, Ninja Turtles has already experienced its share of problems, from fan ridicule over changes to the characters’ origins to a production shutdown in June that led to the opening being moved from December 2013 to the previous date of May 2014.

Directed by Jonathan Liebesman (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, Wrath of the Titans), the CG/live-action hybrid appears to be back on track, with Transformers star Megan Fox cast just last week as April O’Neil.

Filming is expected to begin in April.
