New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot gets Seth Rogen on board
The Interview actor and fellow Point Grey Pictures co-founders, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver, will produce the film alongside Nickelodeon Animation Studio
Actor, director, and producer Seth Rogen has teamed up with Nickelodeon for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot. The Interview actor and fellow Point Grey Pictures co-founders, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver, will produce the film alongside Nickelodeon Animation Studio. Rogen's home banner has earlier produced hits such as This Is The End, Sausage Party, The Disaster Artist, and Blockers.
Deadline reports that the animated TMNT reboot will be directed by Jeff Rowe of Gravity Falls fame with Brendan O’Brien penning the screenplay. President of Kids & Family for ViacomCBS, Brian Robbins, says, "Adding Seth, Evan and James’ genius to the humour 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."
Started as an indie comic in 1984 by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, TMNT has sparked many animated and live-action shows as well as six films since 1990 including two in 2014 and 2016 that were produced by Michael Bay.
