The big screen reboot of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” has been delayed by several months.

Director Jonathan Liebesman’s new vision of the crime-fighting reptile gang was set to hit cinemas in June, 2014 but has now been pushed back until August.

The decision comes just weeks after the film’s star Megan Fox – who plays journalist April O’Neil – announced she is pregnant with her second child.

The movie also stars Will Arnett, Whoopi Goldberg and Alan Ritchson.
