A reboot of the Ninja Turtle franchise has been shut down by Paramount, according to a report by The Hollywood Reporter. Apparently the film was in pre-production in Vancouver when a stop work order was issued by studio execs.
An unsatisfactory script was the reason given in the report for pulling the plug.
