Not content with John Fusco's draft of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Paramount and Platinum Dunes already hired Art Marcum and Matt Holloway to do a re-write last August. Yet still, the studios remain unconvinced that even this latest draft properly captures Raphael's unique mixture of coolness and rudeness, so they've hired another writing team to give it a go. Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec--the creators of such TV classics as October Road and Life on Mars--apparently impressed the guys at Paramount with their re-write of Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol, and the duo is now being paid to do some writing on this live-action-meets-CGI TMNT we so desperately need. Don't forget a riff on cricket, guys.
