Turtle Power!

Seth Rogen is working on a new animated Ninja Turtles that are already in development. And now it looks like there’s another Ninja Turtles project in the works at Paramount.


This one will have a script from Saturday Night Live’s Colin Jost and his brother, Casey Jost.


According to Deadline, the Josts have been brought in to write “a new untitled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film for Paramount Pictures.”

The most recent live-action Ninja Turtles was 2016’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, the second film in the Michael Bay-produced TMNT series which featured human actors like Megan Fox alongside CGI and motion-captured Turtles.


Colin Jost has been a writer at Saturday Night Live since 2005 and has been on his second stint as the show’s head writer since 2017. Casey Jost works as a writer and producer for the hidden camera show Impractical Jokers.
