Seth Rogen’s production company, Point Grey Pictures, is partnering with Nickelodeon for a CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg will produce, with Gravity Falls' Jeff Rowe directing and Brendan O'Brian on script duty, while Paramount has the rights to release the movie. Nickelodeon Animation Studio is crafting its first all-CG film, and we'll have to wait and see if this makes a fresh impact. Rogen and Goldberg have had success with comic book titles in the past, including Preacher and The Boys. We'll ignore the fact that the last time they directly tackled the genre on the big screen was The Green Hornet.
Since their creation as a rough-and-tumble indie comic book by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird in 1984, the Turtles - masked vigilantes named after renaissance painters who use their ninjitsu training to fight crime - have been on screens both big and small through several variations, including live-action movies in the 1990s, a TV animated series, CG film and a live-action reboot that spawned one sequel and featured performance-captured Turtles.
