With an IP as iconic as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, it’s only a matter of time before one sees yet another rendition or rehash of an older work come to fruition on the big or small screen.
Most recently, we have learned that a new animated movie is in the works by Nickelodeon, in collaboration with Point Grey Pictures, the Canadian production company founded by Seth Rogen (This is the End, Sausage Party, The Boys).
The Wrap reports that Jeff Rowe (Gravity Falls, Disenchantment) will be directing, while Brendan O’Brien (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates) will be penning the screenplay. Paramount Pictures is the global distributor for the movie.
No release date nor principal voice cast have yet to be announced.
This will be Nickelodeon Animation Studio’s first-ever CG feature film, having only done two animated series ever since the company acquired the rights to the franchise in 2012. The current ongoing series is Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
