In an exclusive report by The Hollywood Reporter, Will Arnett (Arrested Development, Up All Night, 30 Rock) has been cast for an unnamed role in Michael Bay’s upcoming Ninja Turtles.
“Arnett’s role is being kept secret, though still uncast from the Ninja Turtles mythology are Splinter, the turtles’ sensei rat, and the villainous and masked Shredder. Arnett is not playing the turtles’ human friend Casey, another role that has yet to be cast.” – The Hollywood Reporter
Michael Bay’s Ninja Turtles is slated to release June 6, 2014, delayed from Christmas 2013. Just before a draft script has been leaked, Paramount put production on hold. Shortly after the supposed hiatus, Production Weekly confirmed that Ninja Turtles would begin shooting in April 2013. Rumors of Corey Feldman joining the film have circled (he is confirmed for Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). Megan Fox and the Turtles have been cast. In late March 2013, shooting began in Big Tupper Ski Area in Tupper Lake, New York.
