Quick Cuts: TMNT enter development hell, Lone Ranger gets a bigger budget and more

Michael Bay’s fan-maligned Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles remake has been shot down by Paramount, at least for the time being. It’s been pushed back until Summer 2014, due to issues with the script.

As I said elsewhere, I’m prepping for a jaunt outside the country — to the UK, specifically — during which I’ll leave you with (hopefully) quality reading.  But I’m also prepping for the finales of two excellent shows — “Mad Dogs” and “Marchlands” — both of which air tonight, and both of which I am […]
