Seth Rogen has spoken about his plans for the forthcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, which his production company Point Grey Pictures is behind, saying he hopes it will be a 'great teenage movie'.
Nickelodeon announced last month that Rogen had come on board for the reboot, alongside his fellow Point Grey Pictures (PGP) co-founders Evan Goldberg and James Weaver.
On the news, Brian Robins, President of Kids and Family for Viacom CBS, said that adding the trio's 'genius' to the 'humor and action' of the film would make it a 'next-level reinvention', adding: "I'm looking forward to see what they do."
Well, it sounds like Rogen has equally big ambitions for the project, having revealed what he has in store for the film.
Speaking to Insider recently while promoting new movie An American Pickle, Rogen said: "When I look at Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the'teenage'part was weirdly what stuck out to me the most.
"I think one thing we've been pretty consistently good at over the years is creating material about teenagers, from Blockers, Good Boys, and Superbad.
"That was really what became exciting for us, is how do we make a great action-adventure movie that's also a great teenage movie."
Rogen also said he and Goldberg recently had a call with the creatives on the movie, together working out the plot - meaning it sounds like things are moving along nicely.
But while Rogen's happy to draw on previous teen comedies for future projects, he's admitted it's unlikely he'll revisit the films themselves.
Speaking to LADbible recently, Rogen said: "I think of all the movies we've ever made,Superbad is the one I'd 100 percent probably never touch.
"Honestly, I don't think it requires improvement or anything to be built upon it. I'm unbelievably proud of it, it really holds up - people still watch it, high school kids come up to me telling me that they watched it for the first time and how they loved it. It's worked its way into being viewed as one of the better high school movies that's out there.
"I'm so terrified of subtracting from it in any way with a bad sequel or spin-off that I'd never do it. I have so few actual good accomplishments that I'm horrified to f*** with the ones I have [laughs]."
