Nickelodeon is taking on the project along with Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver of Point Grey Pictures. Jeff Rowe is direction and Brendan O’Brian is writing the screenplay, according to Deadline.

The film will be CG animated – a switch from the beloved live-action TMNT flicks from the nineties.  It marks the first CG feature film for Nickelodeon Animation Studios.

‘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,’ the President of Kids & Family for ViacomCBS said in a statement.

Adding: ‘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.’ 

Brains behind the project: Nickelodeon is taking on the film along with Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver of Point Grey Pictures – it will be Nickelodeon Animation Studio’s first CG feature film ever








It’s unclear if Rogen will also act in the upcoming CG action flick. 

The studio is betting on turtle power raking in big bucks in revenue, continuing the trend of the long running Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles feature film franchise which has grossed over a billion dollars in the last 30 years. 

In 1984, Laird and Eastman published the first issue of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics as a parody of Marvel’s popular comics of the era.

They created the four teen turtles named after Italian Renaissance painters, who thanks to a fortunate and accidental swim in some mysterious ooze, were transformed into walking, talking, crime-fighting mutant superheros.

Reboot: The movie will be the seventh film in the feature franchise based on the 1984 comic about four teen turtles named after Italian Renaissance painters, who thanks to an accidental swim in some mysterious ooze, were transformed into crime-fighting mutant superheros

Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo live in the sewers, eating pizza and battling criminals under the guidance of their sensei Splinter – an anthropomorphic rat.

Splinter is a master of ninjutsu, which he teaches to the boys. Their sidekick is red-headed human reporter April O’Neil. 

In the comics and subsequent shows, films and games, the TMNT go up against their perpetual nemesis, Shredder, a ninjutsu and his ‘foot clan.’   

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles got their first animated series in 1987 which continued on for nearly a decade, airing its last new episode in 1996.

That series popularized the characters love for using surfer lingo like ‘cowabunga’, ‘dude’ and ‘bodacious.’ 

A short-lived live action series soon followed in 1997 but only lasted a year. And, starting in 2003, a second, third and fourth animated TMNT series aired.
