Jonathan Liebesman - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Close To Getting Director
'Wrath of the Titans' director Jonathan Liebesman is in talks to helm the new 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' live action movie.
The filmmaker - who is currently finishing off production on fantasy sequel 'Wrath of the Titans' - has opened negotiations with Paramount to helm the reboot of the children's franchise.
Although based on the TV cartoon series, the film will be live action just like the 1990 movie which was released at the height of the characters' popularity.
Liebesman's other films include 'Battle: Los Angeles', 'The Killing Room' and 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning'.
A third film in the series has already been given the green light by Warner Bros. and screenwriters Dan Mazeau and David Leslie are working on the script.
