The Weinstein Co. has teamed with Warner Bros. to distribute the first all-CG-animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, reports Variety.

The untitled film, set for release in early 2007, would return the franchise to the bigscreen for the first time since 1993. It continues the "Turtles" revival that began three years ago with the premiere of a new TV series.

"Reintroducing the Ninja Turtles in an animated movie will enable the filmmakers to fully realize the adventure and humor of the property," Weinstein said.

The trade says the CG-animated movie will be grittier than its predecessors, taking its tone directly from the comic book series. It will be aimed at PG auditions.

Animation veteran Kevin Munroe will write and direct. Munroe is developing the screenplay in consultation with "Turtles" comic book co-creator Peter Laird.
