According to Variety, Arrow’s Stephen Amell has joined the cast in the upcoming Michael Bay-produced ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.’ Amell will play the hockey-mask wearing vigilante, Casey Jones.
Amell tested with a half-dozen actors over the weekend, but it was his chemistry with Fox that led to the studio eventually giving the role to the star of CW’s “Arrow.”
Megan Fox and Will Arnett will reprise their roles as April O’Neil and Vernon Fenwick. No further details about the plot have been released.
“Earth to Echo” director David Green will direct the sequel, with Michael Bay once again producing.
‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2’ opens June 3, 2016.
