Paramount Casts Their Remaining Turtles For 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Reboot
Reported by Outsiders - 2013.03.25
Last week we received information from Deadline that Paramount Pictures had set The Hunger Games: Catching Fire newcomer Alan Ritchson to play Raphael in the reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. They are now reporting that Pete Ploszek will play Leonardo, Jeremy Howard will play Donatello and Noel Fisher will play Michaelangelo in the Jonathan Liebesman-directed film.
As we mentioned before that in the original movies, the actors were stuffed into turtle costumes but this edition of the movie will be more Avatar-like with better exposure. Paramount doesn't want this reboot to look bad as they are looking to turn it into a franchise. Paramount's next step is looking for main bad guy Shredder as they have already picked up Megan Fox as the female lead. The movie is set to premiere on June 6th, 2014.
