So it looks like the forthcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 has now got its Karai.
Brittany Ishibashi will be playing the warrior with mixed loyalties in David Green’s sequel to the 2014 hit. Karai, who is sometimes shown as Shredder’s daughter, and sometimes as a high ranking but unrelated member of the Foot Clan, had a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it part in the first instalment (played by Minae Noji).
But turtle fans will no doubt be breathing a collective sigh of relief at the character’s expanded role. Ishibashi, who has previously starred in Revenge of the Bridesmaids and Eagle Eye, will be joining Megan Fox, Will Arnett, William Fichtner, Tyler Perry and Brian Tee.

Gary Anthony Williams has joined the cast of the upcoming "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2" movie (I can't believe this is still in demand). Williams will be unrecognizable however, because he'll be playing the humanoid warthog, Bebop, who, along with rhinoceros partner, Rocksteady, are two of the franchise's longstanding villains. The pair take orders from series villain The Shredder (to be played by Brian Tee), leader of the Foot Clan. Rocksteady has yet to be cast. Williams joins the previously-cast Megan Fox, Will Arnett, William Fichtner, Stephen Amell and Tyler Perry (as scientist Baxter Stockman). Alan Ritchson, Jeremy Howard, Pete Ploszek, and Noel Fisher will »

The Half Shell Heroes will be squaring off with a humanoid warthog in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, with news that Gary Anthony Williams has been cast in the supporting role of BeBop. His rhinoceros buddy, Rocksteady, has not yet been cast, but the pair are expected to develop into major antagonists.
As in the cartoon series, BeBop and Rocksteady will be introduced as foot soldiers of the villainous Shredder, tasked with taking revenge on the Turtles. BeBop will start the film as a punkish street thug member of a motley crew of misfits, who is wrongly convinced of his intellectual superiority. Over the course of the movie, he’ll evolve into the villainous, trigger-happy pig that fans know and love.
Alan Ritchson, Jeremy Howard, Pete Ploszek and Noel Fisher reprise the roles of Raphael, Donatello, Leonardo and Michelangelo, with Johnny Knoxville again handling voice duties for Leonardo. The human »

Hollywood has had a long love affair with the heist sub-genre. Dating as far back as the silent film era with 1928’s Alias Jimmy Valentine, and transcending various genres like westerns (The War Wagon), war (Kelly’s Heroes) and even animation (Toy Story 3), the heist has tantalized our fantasies and outsmarted our wits for decades. Whether it’s for the very last time before retirement, gathering the gang back together for a big payday or for the thrill of pulling off the perfect robbery, all heist films share one key element: commitment to a plan. »

We know Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is bringing back April O'Neil (Megan Fox) and Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett), along with the turtles themselves, but today we have new photos that confirm a surprise cameo. If you want to be surprised when you see this sequel in theaters next summer, then stop reading right now. For those who are just dying to know who it is, all will be revealed below.
As you likely know, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were first spawned as comic book characters before getting their hit animated TV series in the 1980s and the 1990 live-action adaptation Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Today, Judith Hoag, who played April O'Neil in the 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, was spotted on the set alongside Megan Fox and Will Arnett. It's unknown at this time who Judith Hoag is playing, or if she has a substantial role, or just a cameo. »
Back in March, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 did some early filming inside Madison Square Garden, where the Los Angeles Clippers were squaring off against the New York Knicks. At the time, it was confirmed that a number of Clippers players would have a cameo, including DeAndre Jordan, J.J. Redick, Matt Barnes, Austin Rivers, and Spencer Hawes. Now it has been confirmed that Knicks star player Carmelo Anthony will also have a memorable cameo in the sequel.
The earlier scene finds Will Arnett, playing Channel 6 cameraman Vern Fenwick, taking his new girlfriend (supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio playing herself) to the game. Some sort of altercation happens there between Vern and the players, with new photos from the set showing as he confronts Will Arnett at a formal dinner party. The specifics of the scene, or how they pertain to the overall story, have not been revealed.

Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea Durham on the Oscars' Red Carpet Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea Durham at the Academy Awards Mark Wahlberg and wife Rhea Durham in a red-and-golden outfit are pictured above on the 2011 Academy Awards' Red Carpet, just outside the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. The Oscar ceremony was held on Sunday, Feb. 27. Wahlberg, decades ago known as underwear model Marky Mark, was an Oscar nominee as one of the producers of Best Picture contender The Fighter – which ultimately lost to odds-on favorite The King's Speech. Mark Wahlberg was the only major player in the David O. Russell-directed boxing drama who failed to be nominated for an Academy Award in the acting categories. Co-stars Amy Adams, Melissa Leo, and Christian Bale were all shortlisted; Leo and Bale ended up winning in their respective supporting categories. Wahlberg, however, was a Best Supporting Actor nominee four years ago: for »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 continues production in New York City, working towards a June 6, 2016 release date. Megan Fox (April O'Neil), Will Arnett (Vern Fenwick) and William Fichtner (Eric Sacks) reprise their roles from last year's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but today we have new set videos that showcase one of the sequel's new casting additions, Stephen Amell as Casey Jones. The video shows an alley scene where April O'Neil is running from the Foot Clan, but she is saved when Casey jumps out from the shadows, attacking the ninja soldier with his hockey stick. We're not completely certain, but it's possible that this scene is the first time April meets Casey.
We also have more videos showcasing the turtles themselves, Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Pete Ploszek and Jeremy Howard. There are also more videos that show some of the filming taking place in New York's Grand Central Station. While »

Even though Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 has been confirmed to bring back Megan Fox as April O'Neil, Will Arnett as Vernon Fenwick and William Fichtner as Eric Saks, it looks like one part of the original cast won't be back. Variety has learned that Paramount is hiring The Wolverine star Brian Tee to play the villain Shredder instead of bringing back Tohoru Masamune, who played the villain in the first film. Considering Shredder was more of an action presence than a defined character in the first film, it makes sense that producers would get someone who has some more experience with acting and action this time. The new casting likely means that Shredder will get some more screentime in the sequel, though there's plenty of other characters entering the mix with Stephen Amell as Casey Jones and Tyler Perry as Baxter Stockman. There's also been rumblings of mutant henchman »

The Shredder has been the main adversary of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for decades, and it was no different in their 2014 film. Although William Fichtner.s Eric Sacks was originally reported to be the film.s Shredder, viewers soon discovered that it was another individual who held the identity. Tohoru Masamune played the villain in the reboot, but when the Turtles and their supporting cast return in 2016.s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, a new actor will be wearing the gigantic metal samurai armor. Variety is reporting that actor Brian Tee will succeed Masamune as Shredder in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. Tee will appear alongside the film.s returning cast and new actors like Stephen Amell (who is playing Casey Jones) and Tyler Perry (who is playing Baxter Stockman). It.s unclear whether Tee.s Shredder will be the primary villain in the sequel or more of a »

There will be a sequel to last year’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles whether we like it or not. The first film managed to gross nearly $500 million around the world upon its release, which is a success in anyone’s eyes, especially those Hollywood executives who must be rubbing their hands with the prospect of duplicated that success with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.
The film is about to go into production and will hit cinemas on the 3rd June, 2016. Michael Bay, the producer on the films, has just released the first images from the flick via his official website. These three images show off two of the vehicles which will be used in the film, an include the ‘Tartaruga brothers Battletruck. Tartaruga being the Italian word for turtle, of course.
Check them out below.

Aside from some paparazzi shots taken at a basketball game where early footage was gathered, we haven’t seen much of anything from the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, which is shell-deep in production. But now producer Michael Bay has posted a couple of shots of vehicles to Twitter. Just some stuff I found… http://t.co/yydcIebaIC pic.twitter.com/sYNXmPpNJL— Michael Bay (@michaelbay) April 25, 2015It’s not exactly the most exciting glimpse of the film, unless you’re as much of a gear head as Bay, but it’s at least a look at the powerful new battle wagon knocked up by – most likely – Donatello for the four heroes to drive around in. Despite that pun featuring the Italian word for “turtle”, it’s hardly the subtlest ride given the whole “ninja” aspect of their group name, but still... The boys like to ride in style. As »
Stockman first appeared in the original Mirage Comics where he was depicted as an African American scientist, but was changed into a white character for the original animated series. Stockman also invents the robotic, turtle-hunting Mousers in the comics.
Michael Bay co-produces again through his Platinum Dunes company, with Earth to Echo director David Green taking over behind the camera from Jonathan Liebesman. Megan Fox returns as April O’Neill, as does William Fichtner (Eric Sacks) and Will Arnett (Vernon Fenwick), while Stephen Amell (Arrow) joins the cast as Casey Jones and Alessandra Ambrosio (Casino Royale) will play Vernon’s girlfriend.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is set for release on June 3rd, 2016.

It was announced last week by the actor himself that Stephen Amell will be playing fan-favourite Casey Jones in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. At the Vancouver Expo Q&A session over the weekend to promote Arrow, Amell was asked about the similarities between Casey Jones and the character he plays in the show.
“Obviously the similarities are right there on the surface, but if the audition process and the script is any indication [Casey Jones] is going to be fundamentally different [from The Arrow],” he said. “As a matter of fact, it’s almost like the character of Casey Jones in this iteration of Ninja Turtles is almost a little bit more like the Oliver Queen that people know from the older comic books.”
Set for release on June 3rd 2016, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 will be »

Do you think Amell will look anything like this is the actual movie? He'll join the returning Megan Fox as April O'Neil and Will Arnett as Vern Fenwick. Though no other cast members have been confirmed yet, William Fichtner is also expected ro reprise the role of Eric Saks. David Green will direct this time, with Michael Bay once again on board as producer. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 hits theaters June 3, 2016. »
