‘Arrow’ Star Stephen Amell Lands Casey Jones Role in ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2′ (EXCLUSIVE)

John G M Burke:

Now this is some interesting news. Stephen Amell will be in the next ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2′. This news peaks my interest a little more about the next TMNT but not enough to pay money to see it in the theaters. Does this news make you want to see it or not?

Stephen Amell has been tapped to play Casey Jones in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2″ for Paramount and Platinum Dunes.

Megan Fox is set to return as April O’Neil. Will Arnett is also returning. David Green is directing the pic. Plot details and information on other returning cast members are still unknown.

A loner who becomes an ally of the turtles and a love interest for O’Neil, Jones is a fan favorite of the series going back to when Elias Koteas played him in the 1990 New Line pic.

Michael Bay is producing along with his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form. Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec are penning the script.

Amell tested with a half-dozen actors over the weekend, but it was his chemistry with Fox that led to the studio eventually giving the role to the star of CW’s “Arrow.” Paramount had no comment on the…

The Trailer Park: The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

So how many of you know of the original TV show ‘The Man from U.N.C.L.E. I take it not very many of you. Well Hollywood has dug up another old TV show and made it a movie.  If the trailer is any indication then this looks like a good adaptation.

The movie stars Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer and direct by Guy Ritchie. Just having Guy Ritchie at the helm makes me want to see this. The film has a very stylished look from the 60’s and the same look and unique style of Guy Ritchie.


“Set against the backdrop of the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” centers on CIA agent Solo and KGB agent Kuryakin. Forced to put aside longstanding hostilities, the two team up on a joint mission to stop a mysterious international criminal organization, which is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The duo’s only lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist, who is the key to infiltrating the criminal organization, and they must race against time to find him and prevent a worldwide catastrophe.”
