The New Teenage Ninja Turtles Film will Feature Music from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross
It's not a large jump from industrial metal to TMNT
Yet the duo of Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, who have so far done a series of successful film scores are now providing the music for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film.
As Consequence of Sound notes, Ninja Turtles co-director Jeff Rowe subsequently confirmed the news on Twitter, writing: “Well now that my teenage hero @tonyhawk has leaked that my music heroes are doing this I can add that the score is absolutely AMAZING. Exhilarating, terrifying, heartbreaking, and full of sounds I didn’t know existed. I don’t have the vocabulary to describe it. I love it so much.”
Entitled Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, the animated flick is produced and co-written by Seth Rogen, and features an all-star voice cast led by Jackie Chan (Splinter), Ayo Edebiri (April O’Neil), Giancarlo Esposito (Baxter Stockman), Post Malone (Ray Fillet), Paul Rudd (Mondo Gecko), Hannibal Buress (Genghis Frog), Rose Byrne (Leatherhead), Ice Cube (Superfly), Maya Rudolph (Cynthia Utrom), John Cena (Rocksteady), and Rogen himself (Bebop). The titular turtles are voiced by Micah Abbey (Donatello), Shamon Brown Jr. (Michelangelo), Nicolas Cantu (Leonardo), and Brady Noon (Raphael). The film is set to hit theaters on August 4th, 2023.
