Jeff Rowe, co-director and writer for Netflix’s animated movie The Mitchells vs. the Machines, will helm the film. Brendan O’Brien will write the reboot; O’Brien has teamed with Seth Rogen before as he’s written both Neighbors and Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising.
This new film will mark the second animated theatrical Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film. In 2007, TMNT was released and saw the likes of Chris Evans and Sarah Michelle Gellar on the voice cast. The franchise has seen five other big-screen releases, all live-action, with the last two featuring computer-generated turtles. Altogether, these films have grossed over a billion dollars at the box office.
