Yes you read that right. “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” is getting another reboot. This time they will be getting one with the help of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Nickelodeon and Point Grey Pictures announced in a press release today:
Nickelodeon and award-winning Point Grey Pictures’ Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver are jointly announcing today that production will begin on an all-new CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theatrical motion picture. Marking the Nickelodeon Animation Studio’s first-ever CG theatrical production, in partnership with Ramsey Naito, Executive Vice President, Animation Production and Development, overseeing production for Nickelodeon. Josh Fagen is overseeing for Point Grey Pictures. Paramount Pictures will handle worldwide distribution of the film.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theatrical motion picture will be directed by Jeff Rowe (Gravity Falls, Connected, Disenchantment) and written by Brendan O’Brian (Neighbors, Sorority Rising, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates).
Said Brian Robbins, President, Kids & Family for ViacomCBS: “Adding Seth, Evan and James’ genius to the humor and action that’s already an integral part of TMNT is going to make this a next-level reinvention of the property. I’m looking forward to see what they do, and I know that Ramsey Naito and her team are excited to take the Nick Animation Studio into another great direction with their first-ever CG-animated theatrical.”
Last time we saw anything from TMNT was “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, starring Megan Fox, Will Arnett, and Stephen Amell. This is a weird time to announce such a move but you know what? I’m totally for it. Especially because I really miss those 90’s turtles. Hopefully it will bring back some of the older vibes from the earlier movies and shy away from the newly designed turtles. But that’s just my hope.
