Without Michael Bay: “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" is now produced by Seth Rogen

Hopefully the movie will be better than its predecessors

The “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” have been available as comics since 1984. Most recently, there were two feature films in 2014 and 2016 and both of them could not convince one hundred percent, neither financially nor in terms of content. In 2018 the announcement followed that Michael Bay would re-release the movie as a live-action film. However, as we now heard a few days ago, this is not going to happen, as the major US magazines report that Seth Rogen will now take care of the production of the film. Also the idea of making a live-action movie was rejected, because behind the scenes they apparently decided to make a computer-animated version of the turtles. To realize the idea, the whole team and the responsible studio was changed, which means a complete new start.

The new studio is called Point Grey Pictures and many of you may recognize it from the comedy duo at the top - Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. In an official statement from the two, it says that they are planning a "next-level reinvention" of the brand. So we can be curious, as this will also be the first computer animated Nickelodeon movie.

Regardless of this, Netflix is of course still working on the "Turtles" film, which is based on the series that started in 2018.

So fans of Michelangelo, Raphael, Donatello and Leonardo can look forward to a lot of content about their favourite turtles in the future, but unfortunately there are no exact release dates for both projects yet.
