Nickelodeon was producing a new CG-animated movie of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are developing the project, and in a new interview with Collider, Rogen talker about what they are looking to do with the project and how it will be different from the other versions we’ve seen. He explains that this new movie will lean more towards a teenage coming-of-age story:
“As a lifelong fan of Ninja Turtles, weirdly the ‘Teenage’ part of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was always the part that stuck out to me the most. And as someone who loves teenage movies, and who’s made a lot of teenage movies, and who literally got their start in their entire profession by writing a teenage movie, the idea of kind of honing in on that element was really exciting to us. I mean, not disregarding the rest, but really using that as kind of a jumping off point for the film.”
Jeff Rowe (Gravity Falls) is set to helm the project while Brendan O’Brien (Neighbors: Sorority Rising) is writing the script. There are still no details about the story.
