Who would have thought that Laura Linney, out of all people will be joining the cast of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2? I mean ever since she has entered Hollywood, she has done veteran roles in not-so-high budgeted films; but here she is ready to wear knuckles to join either one of the sewer sides.
Details about Linney’s character are being kept under the wraps for now but we will soon have some insight on it. Linney will be joining Megan Fox and Will Arnett who are reprising their roles as April O’Neil and Vernon Fenwick.
Other cast members include the Arrow star Stephen Amell (Casey Jones), Brian Tee (the Shredder), Tyler Perry (Baxter Stockman) and Alessandra Ambrosio (Vernon’s love interest).
Adding Linney to the cast was a bit surprising as well as interesting. Since she has been a part of flicks and dramas such as The Fifth Estate, Hyde Park on Hudson and the recently wrapped THE BIG C. Currently she has Mr. Holmes on her radar starring opposite the legendary Mr. Ian McKellan and recently wrapped up the 1920s drama opposite Nicole Kidman, Jude Law, Guy Pearce and Colin Firth titled ‘Genius’.
Dave Green will be directing the feature from a script written by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 has started filming in New York.
