Deadline is reporting that Paramount and Platinum Dunes have cast Alan Ritchson as Raphael, the first turtle for the Jonathan Liebesman-directed live-action/CGI feature Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. In this edition, the movement and fighting for the characters will be done by performance capture as it was done for the Avatar movie. The original movie had the actors wearing bulky turtle suits. The TMNT reboot is set for June 6th, 2014.
Alan Ritchson can be seen playing Gloss, the deadly dagger-wielding male tribute from District One in the upcoming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
