Variety is reporting that Arrow’s very own Stephen Amell has been cast as Casey Jones in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. Amell joins some returning cast members like Megan Fox (April O’Neil) and Will Arnett.
Michael Bay is going to produce the film along with Brad Fuller and Andrew Form. David Green Will direct. The script is said to be written by Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec.
The details and plot are still unknown, though we do know that Jones is one of the franchises favorite characters. He’s a friend and ally of the turtles and also the love interest of O’Neil.
Amell auditioned for the role this past weekend along with some other actors, but Amell came out triumphant. Paramount had no comment at this time. Paramount did however give a generalized release date of 2016 before it even cast any of the roles.
