Mayor of NYC blesses Ninja Turtles II

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II is slated to begin filming in New York City in April 2015. New Yorkers are excited for the Michael Bay produced sequel to commence production. New York City mayor, Bill de Blasio, was quoted as recently of having said:

“We welcome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II to New York City, and look forward to the many jobs this will bring to our local economy.”

The Big Apple can expect to generate approximately $70 million dollars via the film’s shooting in the city that never sleeps. We here at are happy for New York City to have, yet, another opportunity to host our guys in green and we look forward to bringing you up to date behind-the-scenes sneak peeks and other previews as they relate to the sequel to the Platinum Dunes/Paramount Studios Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise.

Side Note…

Although we know that we’ll be seeing fan-favorite villains such as “Bebop” and “Rock Steady” in this go-around, no plot information has been released as of today regarding the Turtles sequel. We are certain that we’ll, no doubt, have our eyes glued up on the big screen come 2016 when we think about the possibilities of all the incredible action sequences with the Turtles and Bebop and Rock Steady.

Turtles II will hit theaters in the United States on June 6th, 2016

The film will be directed by Dave Green, the guy behind the hit 2014 animated film Earth To Echo.
Screenwriters from Turtles I, Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec will return to pen the screenplay.

Megan Fox and Will Arnet will return in this next installment, of course, as well.
The question is: What are you looking forward to most regarding the upcoming Turtles film sequel?
