Seth Rogen is among the producers bringing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles back to the big screen. A CG-animated feature film reboot, titled simply Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, was announced Tuesday by Nickelodeon.
Point Grey Pictures — the production company run by Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver — will produce along with Nickelodeon Animation Studio in the latter’s first-ever CG theatrical production.
Paramount Pictures will distribute the film.
Rogen is no stranger to producing adaptations of comic book properties, as he has also brought Preacher and The Boys to life on the small screen.
This animated TMNT movie reboot will be directed by Jeff Rowe (Gravity Falls, Connected, Disenchantment) and written by Brendan O’Brian (Neighbors, Sorority Rising, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates).
Created in 1984 by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles began as an indie comic book series before becoming a beloved animated TV series.

The comics beget a live-action TV series and, on the big screen, a slew of feature films since the 1990s.
The last CG-animated TMNT feature film was released in 2007, with a pair of Michael Bay-produced live-action movies released in 2014 and 2016.
No word yet on a release date for this Rogen-produced TMNT movie.
