Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 to Film in NYC, Buffalo

From NYDailyNews.com


The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are coming to New York — and they’re bringing some serious green with them.

The action flick sequel, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2,” will begin filming next month in New York City and Buffalo, which officials estimate will result in $70 million in spending.

The bulk of that money — $63 million — will be spent in the Big Apple, according to Paramount.

New York City knows how to host blockbuster films," said Mayor de Blasio.

“We welcome ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2’ to New York City, and look forward to the many jobs and tens of millions of jobs this will bring to our local economy.”


The details of where the shoots will take place and what stars are featured are being kept under wraps.

“We can only imagine what the filmmakers have in store,” said Cynthia Lopez, commissioner of the mayor's office of media and entertainment.

The movie will be in theaters in June 2016.
