Paramount Hires Marcum & Holloway For Fast-Tracked Big Franchise 'Ninja Turtles'

Deadline writes: I hear that Paramount has hired the writing team of Art Marcum and Matt Holloway for close to $1 million to reimagine a new release of the live action feature Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

"The studio is looking at this as its next huge franchise, like Transformers," a source just told me. Indeed, Platinum Dunes which is Michael Bay's, Andrew Form's, and Brad Fuller's company, is producing along with the original producers Scott Mednick, Galen Walker, and Marina Norman.

Paramount's Adam Goodman is fast-tracking and wants a first draft by October so the studio can take it out to directors right away for a 2012 release.

Hmmm...I'm torn. While I'm a die-hard fan of the turtles, and I loved the original trilogy (despite the slow increase of cartoonishness), I totally despised the CGI Animated film. I'm kind of curious, but sort of worried as to what a whole new department will conjure up for our Heroes in a Halfshell.
