Ninja Turles halted!

The production of the reboot of Ninja Turtles that was being handled by Michael Bay's production company "Platinum Dunes". I say "was" because is appears that production of the film has came to a complete halt, with the film being delayed well into 2014. It feels like the big dogs up top aren't completely satisfied with the development of the film specifying the script as one of the main causes for concern.  
"The effects-heavy film, which was in pre-production in Vancouver, was set for release in December 2013. That date is being pushed to May 2014, according to sources. The issue is said to be the script. Paramount has delayed several big movies from this year to 2013, including G.I. Joe: Retaliation and Brad Pitt’s World War Z, leaving it with a spotty pipeline for the current year. Now it has halted work on its planned holiday movie for 2013, temporarily laying off pre-production staff and informing those prepping the film that the work stoppage is “indefinite,” according to sources. Another source close to the production says the movie has been pushed by ten weeks."

This may be unsettling news for fans of the reboot (not that I imagine there is many), but let me tell you this, this is by far the best movie news I've read in weeks.
