News came from Paramount Pictures that they are coming out with another live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. This movie will be written by Saturday Night Live‘s Colin Jost & his brother Casey Jost. The movie will have Michael Bay, Andrew Form, Brad Fuller, Scott Mednick, & Galen Walker locked in as producers. No details have been revealed about what this film will be, but we know that it won’t be a follow-up to Michael Bay’s previous Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle films.
We are still getting Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg‘s CGI Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film under their Point Grey Pictures company in 2023. Rogen’s take on the four turtle brothers focuses on the brothers going through their teenage phase, which is a bit off, but we’ll see how this turns out.
Rogen said in 2020 that:
“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.”
No release date has been locked down for the Jost brothers film, but we’ll keep you posted on further updates on both films.
