Animation vet Kevin Munroe has been tapped to write and direct a new CGI-animated “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” pic for Imagi Services.

“Turtles,” which debuted in the 1980s in comicbooks created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, were last seen on the bigscreen in a trio of live-action pics from New Line in the early ’90s.

Imagi prexy-CEO Tom Gray, who produced two of the earlier “Turtles” films, and Galen Walker are producing. Laird, Francis Kao, Gary Richardson and Frederick Fierst are exec producers.

Currently in pre-production, pic is targeted for release in spring 2007.
