Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Seth Rogan Movie Coming
The Paramount Studios / Seth Rogan Production: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem will feature an all-star cast: Jackie Chan, Seth Rogan, John Cena, Ice Cube, Hannibal Buress, Giancarlo Esposito, Paul Rudd, Maya Rudolph, and Post Malone.
Watch the newly-released trailer down below.
It’s been 3 days since Seth Rogen walked out onto the stage at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards and announced the cast for his upcoming Turtles reboot, but the internet still hasn’t calmed down about it yet.
Scheduled to hit theaters August 4th, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem finds our favorite 4 sewer-dwelling, pizza-loving heroes in a half shell Donatello, Michelangelo, Leonardo, and Raphael with their sights set on keeping New York City safe from the antics of Bebop and Rocksteady, but also on finding acceptance from those above whom they protect.
What will make this new TMNT movie stand out from those that have come before it, will be the big screen introduction of such well-known origin story/mythology/1980s animated TV series characters as “Genghis Frog,” “Leatherhead,” “Wingnut,” “Cynthia Utrom,” “Ray Millet,” and “Mondo Gecko,” but also the insane cast of big names attached.
- Splinter: Jackie Chan
- Donatello: Micah Abbey
- Michelangelo: Shannon Brown Jr.
- Leonard: Nicholas Cantu
- Raphael: Brady Noon
- Bebop: Seth Rogan
- Rocksteady: John Cena
- April O’Neil: Ayo Edebiri
- Genghis Frog: Hannibal Buress
- Leatherhead: Rose Byrne
- Superfly: Ice Cube
- Wingnut: Natasie Demetrious
- Baxter Stockman: Giancarlo Esposito
- Ray Millet: Post Malone
- Mondo Gecko: Paul Rudd
- Cynthia Utrom: Maya Rudolph
With Rogan at the helm of this new movie, Turtles fans will likely get to see a much better film than those previously brought to the big screen by director/producer, Michael Bay.
And judging from the recent statement by the President of Nickelodeon Animation and Paramount Animation, Ramsey Naito, the studio itself might be thinking the exact same thing:
“We are beyond thrilled by this world-class cast we’ve assembled to bring these iconic, beloved characters to life in a new chapter of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles universe. This really sets a new bar for this globally celebrated franchise, and we can’t wait to show audiences this film.
