Stephen Amell Joins Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

31 March 2015 3:13 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

We’re starting to get dribs and drabs of news about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, which has begun at least early filming without much ballyhoo. A couple of days ago, word of supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio joining the film arrived and now we have someone who has a higher profile – in geeky circles, at least – Stephen Amell will be Casey Jones. Amell, currently to be seen as Oliver Queen on the DC TV series Arrow, is set to play the popular Turtles character, a hockey-masked vigilante who ends up helping our heroes in a half-shell and becoming a flirty love interest for April O’Neil (Megan Fox, who is returning to the film alongside Will Arnett).Not much else is known about the film at this time, in terms of story – the script is again by writers Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec – and we don’t yet know if any »

Victoria’s Secret Model Joins Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2; Possible Title Emerges

30 March 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Whether you loved or loathed the gang’s latest big-screen adventure, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 has been given the go-ahead by Paramount with a June, 2016 release date in mind. It’s not an overly surprising move, really, considering that the live-action flick pulled in box office receipts to the tune of $477 million last year. And so, with production set to get underway, there have been murmurings regarding the sequel’s title, which is said to drop the numeral in favor of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Half-Shell.

The speculative tidbit comes hand in hand with some casting news for the follow-up, with supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio (Gossip Girl and Entourage) joining the line-up as Will Arnett’s (who plays bumbling cameraman Vernon Fenwick) new-fangled love interest.

Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo’s latest outing will once again be penned by writing duo Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec following their work on the original. »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: title teased

29 March 2015 11:05 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

It looks like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 will actually be called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Half Shell...

Production starts soon on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, the follow-up to the commercially successful 2014 reboot of the Turtles movies. This time, Earth To Echo's Dave Green is taking over directing duties, and the release date has long been earmarked for June 3rd 2016.

Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec are back to pen the screenplay, and the core cast are returning. And we now learn that one cast member - Jj Redick - may just have leaked the title for the new movie. Appearing on The Lowe Post podcast, he's been chatting about a planned scene for the movie, and in it, he dropped the apparent name: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Half Shell.

This hasn't been confirmed by Paramount or Platinum Dunes thus far, and it may just be that it's a holding title. »

Alessandra Ambrosio Joins Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

29 March 2015 10:28 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

There has been little buzz around the fact that Paramount is pushing ahead with a sequel to last year’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But the studio, looking to capitalise on the $485 million worldwide box office of the reboot, has the cameras rolling with Earth To Echo’s Dave Green directing. We know that Will Arnett will be back as smarmy cameraman Vernon Fenwick and The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Victoria’s Secret supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio is set to join him as the character’s new girlfriend.Little else is known about the film, besides the fact that Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec have once again written the script, which, one assumes finds Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo (and, most likely Megan Fox's April O'Neil) back to battle the forces of evil. Reports have pointed to classic ‘toon/comics franchise mutants Bebop and Rocksteady making an appearance.Ambrosio, »
