Although most of the film is planned to shoot in and around New York City, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has now booked production time at the Big Tupper Ski Area in Tupper Lake, New York. The Adirondack Daily Enterprise reports that the Platinum Dunes production will make use of the resort which, last September, was forced to shut down.
Three days of shooting will also take place at Lake Tupper’s local golf course and the schedule is said to call for a scene wherein a helicopter lands on the driving range.
To be directed by Jonathan Liebesman, the film features a screenplay by Josh Appelbaum, Andrew Nemec, Art Marcum, Matt Holloway and John Fusco, based on the characters created by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman.
So far, only two cast members have been announced: Megan Fox will star as reporter April O’Neil and Alan Ritchson will play Raphael. Check back for further casting and production updates as they become available.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is scheduled for release on June 6, 2014.
