We reported back in May that Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes was taking over production on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And we reported in August that Iron Man writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway were writing the new movie. Plot details weren't released, but this new movie will be a live-action project.
The news confirms a report from last week regarding Zoolander 2, which was said to start shooting sometime next year. Iron Man 2 screenwriter Justin Theroux will write and direct the sequel, with Ben Stiller reprising his role as Derek Zoolander.
The Untitled G.I. Joe Sequel, which is being written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and the Untitled Jack Ryan Project were also mentioned in the conference call, along with Star Trek 2, which will start shooting in January for a June 29, 2012 release date.
No production details or release dates were mentioned for the other projects, although it was said Viacom plans to release all of these projects after September 2011.
