On the heels of news that CBS is developing a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles live action TV series for CBS All Access, more TMNT reboot news has surfaced. However, this TMNT news is more theatrical and animated in nature.
Deadline is reporting that a CG Movie Reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is currently in production. Producing the film are Nickelodeon and Seth Rogen‘s studio, Point Grey Pictures.
Naturally, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver will be producing the Computer Generated picture. Meanwhile, Jeff Rowe (Gravity Falls) will be directing with comedy writer Brendan O’Brien (Neighbors: Sorority Rising, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates) will write the screenplay. Paramount will handle global distribution on the film.
“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.” says Brian Robbins, President, Kids & Family for ViacomCBS.
As it is early in production, no synopsis details or a release date were announced.
