The Turtles Have Been Cast In New Ninja Turtles

More of the cast has been locked in for the upcoming Ninja Turtles movie. Deadline has announced the four leads. Jeremy Howard (Galaxy Quest) will star as Donatello, Pete Ploszek (Parks and Recreation) will play Leonardo and Noel Fisher (Shameless, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2) will play Michelangelo. It was announced last week that Alan Ritchson (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) will be playing Raphael.

This is a relatively unknown cast. I’m surprised there isn’t a big name attached to bring in the crowds. Megan Fox will be playing April, the lead female character. Shredder, the villain, hasn’t yet been cast so there’s always a possibility of a big-ish name turning up.

Jonathan Liebesman (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, World Invasion: Battle L.A., Wrath Of The Titans) will be directing a screenplay by Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol). Michael Bay is producing.
