Producer casts doubt over third Turtles movie

Andrew Form, producer of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, doubts there will be a third movie in the franchise.

The last Turtles film made half the worldwide gross of 2014’s reboot of the franchise, and as such, Form believes this incarnation of the Turtles on the big screen has run its course.

"I don’t think there’s Turtles 3, but I wouldn’t say there’s never going to be another Turtles movie," Form told Collider.

"We’re still so proud of the movie [Out of the Shadows]; it just didn’t find an audience. We really don’t know why."

Form also noted his suprise that the addition of fan-favourite characters like Bebop and Rocksteady didn’t give the sequel a boost at the box office.

"One thing we did learn is you can’t just add characters to a movie and expect that to be what’s fresh," added Form.

"It’s a sequel. You have to give the audience something that’s really new and fresh. Maybe just adding characters from the canon, that wasn’t enough."
