The wildly beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are making their way back to the big screen. As first reported by Deadline, Nickelodeon will partner with Seth Rogen‘s Point Grey Pictures for an all-new CG reboot film featuring the iconic team of turtles.
Seth Rogen and his longtime collaborators Evan Goldberg and James Weaver will produce the upcoming feature. Additionally, Gravity Falls director Jeff Rowe will helm the picture with a script penned by Brendan O’Brian (Neighbors: Sorority Rising). Paramount will once again distribute the film for worldwide theatrical release. Moreover, unlike its recent big-screen predecessors, the film will be all CG with no live-action elements.
The new film immediately follows news that CBS All Access is developing a live-action series that takes inspiration from The Last Ronin, which is an upcoming five-part comic series to be published by IDW Publishing. The two projects are separate but will return the famous turtles to the forefront on both TV and in cinemas.
Most recently, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were the focus of their film franchise with the latest CG/live-action hybrid coming in 2016. Starring Megan Fox and Stephen Amell the film earned $245 million worldwide and received mixed reviews from the critics. Additionally, the characters currently appear in Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The animated series is currently in season two on Nickelodeon.
