Seth Rogen Says Upcoming ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Movie Is ‘Deeply Personal’

Seth Rogen says there’s more to his upcoming “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” reboot than meets the eye.

In a Thursday interview with The A.V. Club, the actor — who’s known for his massive stake in the comedy realm with popular movies like “Superbad” and “Pineapple Express” — said the film shows he has a more introspective side than viewers may realize.

“We found a way to make it deeply personal,” he said. “It’s a teenage movie, we’re putting a lot of our own feelings—of awkwardness and insecurity and a desire to belong and be accepted and all that—into the movie.”

“And as I sit around with the other people working on it,” he added, “I’m like, ‘We found a way to care about this,’ which is great.”

So they didn't care about it until that moment? When they're already in the writers' room? You get hired for a thing and then hopefully later on you find a way to make yourself care about it -- this is the way it works now?

It's like I keep saying, the biggest reason I am not hopeful for future TMNT movie and TV projects is because the people making them clearly look down on the material and that is not a good place to begin.

In a time when much of our entertainment ties back to established brands, you'd think companies would be hiring artists and creators that are at least aware of the appeal of a given property.

I think back to previous (even recent) times where this has happened and resulted in quality material popular in its day that stood the test of time. Instead, it's almost as if they seek out people that are ambivalent, and the resulting corporate vanity projects are hit-or-miss financially and usually duds critically.

It shouldn't be that hard to find creatives in the industry that are passionate about TMNT, right? Or at least those who see it as more than a roadblock to get past to "find a way to care about" the film they're making? Say what you will about 2012, but Ciro Nieli gets TMNT at least to some extent. I'm not so sure this Rogen guy does, but I guess we'll see.

Yeah, Ciro gets it. And if he were to be offered a semi-adult TMNT thing he would make something very different than what he did with the kids show.

Rogen, I dunno. I wanted to give him a chance but every interview he's being given about it, he's saying the wrong things.

I'm 99% sure Rogen doesn't give a ****. He probably watched a couple episodes of the cartoon when he was a kid and that's it.

It's like if I was given the opportunity to make a SpongeBob movie, and there was actually more to it then it just being a goofy kids show. But I didn't know that or really care.

I'd half-ass that movie like hell. Because I honestly couldn't care less about SpongeBob.

Rogen is a typical modern modern entertainer - some talent, ENORMOUS EGO, no ability to accept his shortcomings. Also, riding whatever hype is at the moment.

In short, he’s a rich fickle a**hole.

Wished I could comment the other day, but I was off being sick in bed and don't use the forum via phone. (Nor did I have the mental clarity to attempt to remember logins anyhow.)

I resented being sick and not being online though after seeing that quote. What the actual hell. How noble of him/them to go so such great lengths to MANAGE to find a way to give a damn about a project they'd taken on. Like the lowest possible bar to reach for a project... So much for the claims that he was such a big fan.

He’s just saying you have to find a heart for the story or you end up with something just plain goofy like secret of the ooze. Which is a bit of a pleasure for me, but not a film I would praise.

I would love to quiz him on TMNT trivia, just to prove how truly ignorant he is of the franchise he claims to love so much.

“So, Mr. Rogen, just what is the Technodrome?”

“Oh, it’s a website for a bunch of Comicsgate a**holes who claim to be Ninja Turtle fans, but they’re more toxic than the ooze that mutated the turtles. Eh heh heh heh heh!”

(cue laughter track)

He's generally really, really humble. At least outside of Twitter.

Well, I’m sticking to my boycotting decision, but you can give him a chance if you want to. That’s your decision.

But if the movie does end up being hot garbage, and he calls you a white supremacist for not liking it, don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Apathetic, really. But yeah, early on I definitely wasn't ruling out Rogen doing something shockingly good with the TMNT. It's just, then he started talking about it.

He wants to start talking about it... so T[mnt]-minus 8.5 months until premier and that's what we hear about it... an undisclosed reason they care. *sigh*

Some projects would be starting to drop some tiny teasers by now, or a very short trailer even. Hell, Netflix puts vague "coming soon" labels on things for longer than that.

Ever since the PD films I figured anyone else venturing a try might be less enthusiastic to share anything too soon, because unless they live under a rock they aught to be aware that this fandom has teeth and strong opinions...and if they chose to play with fire (aka absurd choices) then limiting the period of negative public feedback might be safer. But on the flip side, it also gives negative speculation a chance to grow if waiting makes it look like they're hiding it and doesn't give any questionable decisions time to digest and be accepted.

It'll be the first one my nephew is able to see in a theater, so no matter how it turns out I'm sure we will likely catch it. Even if they made choices I don't care for I'd rather know long enough in advance than still be in the middle of "wtf is this" mode too close to premier... just saying.

I’m not necessarily betting on the movie being good, I just think the behavior towards him seems a little aggressive.

I guess if he accused people of being racist, I can see why, but I’m out of the loop on that.

People pre-judge works because of the creators involved all the time. Maybe it's not entirely fair but most people do operate on the principle of, "Oh, it's _______ making it? Well that's all I need to know."

I personally can't stand anything Rogen has ever done or had his hands on, except for 40-Year Old Virgin. So in my case, "That's all I need to know". The odds that this movie will be the first Rogen Thing I don't hate may exist, but they're slim. They're also aiming for a younger audience, so put the two variables together and it's like a Black Licorice and Ass sandwich. For me.
