Brian Robbins Talks About Rebooting 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Franchise

Brian Robbins has spoken more about Paramount's plan to reboot the iconic Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise, including the upcoming animated movie!

Speaking to Variety, the President & Chief Executive Officer, Paramount Pictures & Nickelodeon, and Chief Content Officer, Movies and Kids & Family, Paramount+ said: "It’s animated, and it goes back to the roots of the Turtles. Seth and his producing partner Evan Goldberg were brilliant choices because no one can tell stories about being teenagers better than those guys. They’re passionate and super nerdy about the Turtles. It’s going to work for kids, parents, Gen Z-ers and Millennials. We have plans to do multiple animated movies this way, but one day we might go back to a hybrid live-action version of the Turtles."

Robbins also reiterated his plans to focus on franchises: "Going forward, I’m focused on our franchises. We are fortunate in that we have amazing franchises, which we need to lean into. We have adult franchises like Mission: Impossible, A Quiet Place, Transformers and Star Trek. And we have family franchises with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and SpongeBob. You’ve got to have multi-year plans for these franchises. You can’t just make a movie, see how it does and then decide to make another one, because if you do that, it will be years between sequels. Like Sonic, we’re going to take a spinoff character Knuckles and do a miniseries on Paramount+, which will transition us into the third Sonic movie with lots of Easter eggs. That planning is what I’m focused on, as well as filling out the slate with filmmakers that we’re passionate about who want to tell stories that they have passion for. That allows us to greenlight things like the new movie we have from Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the South Park guys, who are working on a movie with Kendrick Lamar that’s so far out, it could break through the zeitgeist."

Following the massive success of Top Gun: Maverick, Robbins also talked about whether they'll be a third Top Gun film: "Let’s see where we are 35 years from now. I don’t want to speculate. This is an incredible run. The sky is the limit for this movie."
