Ninja Turtles (2014) Gets Will Arnett; Possibly As Shredder Or Splinter
The Ninja Turtles movie has a new cast addition with Will Arnett, but his role is reportedly being kept secret with mention of the actor possibly playing Shredder or Splinter.
THR reports that Will Arnett has been cast as a lead in the Jonathan Liebesman-directed Ninja Turtles reboot.
Regarding Will Arnett's character, it's stated that it definitely isn't Casey Jones, who has yet to be cast, and since it's a lead the role it could either be the villain Shredder or the wise teacher of the ninja turtles, Splinter.
Will Arnet joins Megan Fox who will play the film's female lead as April O'Neil, with Alan Ritchson, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard and Noel Fisher playing the turtles in what is being described as more akin to Avatar with use of CGI.
No plot details are known at this time, but it's previously been said the movie will be ditching the "teenage mutant" aspects in favor of a more alien origin.
Michael Bay is on as producer, with Ninja Turtles having a June 6, 2014 release.
Will Arnett is also the voice of Batman in the Lego movie.
