Who was responsible for the TMNT Mutant Mayhem
Seth Rogen, his long-time partner in writing and producing, Evan Goldberg, serves as the producer of the new animated film. Spears and Rowe will be the first to take the helm. Spears was previously a director on the animated feature The Mitchells vs the Machines. The latter also served as a script artist. They worked with Brendan O’Brien (Bad Neighbors screenwriter) on mutant Mayhem.
Many fans have taken it to social media and praised Mutant Mayhem‘s debut trailer. They also praised the character designs, the art style, as well the authenticity of the teenager portrayal. Others have voiced concern over the absence of Casey Jones – the fan-favorite vigilante – who is also not on the official list. It’s a noteworthy absence, as the film’s cast seems to have taken a deep look into the franchise. Officially, no one involved with the project has commented on whether the character would appear.
Fans can wait to see the rest of Turtle’s clan back on the big screen when Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; Mutant Mayhem hits theaters in August.
