It’s been a while now since we had any news regarding the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. The last rumblings we had regarded Megan Fox and her, possible, casting as April O’ Neill. Now though, we have some solid information on another cast member joining the Ninja Turtles.
Alan Ritchson (no I haven’t heard of him either) will play Raphael. Ritchson played Aquaman in Smallville and has just finished filming for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Filming for Ninja Turtles is due to start soon and will use a motion capture device for the Turtles, similar to Avatar or Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes.
Due for release on May 16th 2014, the IMDb has this to say: “Aliens invade Earth and inadvertently spawn a quartet of mutated reptile warriors, the Ninja Turtles, who rise up against them to defend the world.”
