Stephen Amell Begins Filming TMNT 2 In NYC; Buffalo Films Friday



Michael Bay recently released first look images for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 as filming has begun.

Arrow actor Stephen Amell, who plays Casey Jones in TMNT 2, also posted on his popular Facebook page that it's his first day of filming adding, "A little ‪#‎mememonday‬ would go a long way."

Amell runs his own Facebook page and regularly interacts with fans, such as having them create memes with his likeness.

TMNT 2 is currently filming in NYC (sorry, no set pics), and it's learned the movie's second filming location, Buffalo, NY, will begin closing streets down this Friday.

The New York State Department of Transportation has announced that Friday, May 1st, will see part of the Kensington Expressway in Buffalo closed for filming from 11:00pm to 4am the next morning. Then starting the following Monday, the road will be closed every night from 7pm to 6am to Saturday, May 16th.

Paramount previously let it be known none of the well-known actors would be present for the shoot, but did offer the scene would feature helicopters and multiple vehicle chases.

The location is literally about fifteen to twenty minutes away from the Cosmic Book News offices, so I'm going to head down there and see what's up.

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2" has a June 3, 2016 release directed by David Green and produced by Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, starring Megan Fox as April O'Neil, Will Arnett as Vernon, Stephen Amell as Casey Jones, Tyler Perry as Baxter Stockman with the movie also featuring Bebop and Rocksteady.
