Last year’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles may have been panned by critics however it was a box office smash. So much so that a sequel was greenlit for 2016 before Paramount secured a director. David Green replaces Jonathan Liebesman in the hot seat, however it is the recent casting news that should cause some excitement amongst fans.
Stephen Amell, star of the hit TV series Arrow, has been cast as Casey Jones, the loner vigilante in a hockey mask. The character has been a firm favourite amongst fans of the series, arguably made popular by Elias Koteas’ portrayal in the 1990 movie.
Details on the plot are very thin, however Amell’s addition to the cast should promise some gritty fight sequences that will please older fans.
Megan Fox and Will Arnett will reprise their roles as April O’Neil and Vernon Fenwick.
