EXCLUSIVE: First Look at Bebop & Rocksteady's Motorcycles in TMNT Movie Sequel





Last month news and pictures leaked of Bebop and Rocksteady in costume and on set for next year's TMNT movie sequel, which is currently filming in New York City. Now, Ninja Pizza is giving you an exclusive first look at their rides. The tricked out motorcycles appear to be chopper-style low riders. The bike on the left calls out Bebop, leaving the one on the right to be Rocksteady's.

Here's also a video of the bikes being test driven.

"Ninja Turtles 2" Set Pictures Reveal Costumes and Cast



Shortly after the announcement that Stephen Amell will be playing the role of Casey Jones in the TMNT movie sequel, Half Shell, amateur set pictures popped up online of Amell filming in his Casey Jones costume. This prompted Paramount/Nickelodeon to release an official picture of Amell.


You have to do a bit of squinting, but you can read the name "EASTMAN" on the hockey stick he's holding.

Also spotted recently was the one-and-only Judith Hoag, shooting street scenes with Megan Fox (April O'Neil) and Will Arnett (Vern Fenwick). Of course, Hoag was the original April O'Neil in the first TMNT movie from 1990. Although she declined working in the sequels to that film, she remains for many the definitive April O'Neil. While her role in the new movie isn't known, it is definitely a nice acknowledgment to the past.

More Casting News for "Ninja Turtles 2"



Two more keys roles have been cast in the upcoming "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2." Reports state that Tyler Perry will be playing scientist Baxter Stockman, while Brian Tee has been cast as Shredder.

Brian Tee replaces Tohoru Masamune, who was cast as Shredder for reshoots on the 2014 film when it was determined necessary to change the story, which originally had William Ficthner's Eric Sacks character playing the role of Shredder.

While Tyler Perry is perhaps most known for a long list of comedic movies that include his name in the title, he has also played a number of dramatic roles, most recently in last year's "Gone Girl."

Michael Bay Tweets Photos of New "Ninja Turtles" Vehicles



This weekend, Michael Bay tweeted some photos of "Just some stuff I found..." While no further information was provided, the pictures are assumed to be vehicles from "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2," which is in the beginning phases of production.



Two of the pictures detail a garbage truck with the words "Tartaruga Brothers" painted on the side, which is quite obviously from TMNT. "Tartaruga" is the Italian word for "Turtle."


In the 4Kids TMNT cartoon series, the Turtles utilized a moving truck labeled "Tortuga Brothers Moving." "Tortuga" is the Spanish word for "Turtle."

Stephen Amell Cast as Casey Jones in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2"




Right on the heels of the first filming report, we're now getting some casting news for the upcoming sequel to last year's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. Stephen Amell, who plays Oliver Queen/Arrow on "Arrow," apparently won the role of Casey Jones in auditions held just this past weekend.

According to Variety.com, "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.'"

Amell steps into the shoes of Elias Koteas, who is the only other actor to play Casey Jones in a live-action role. Koteas, who played the role in the first and third New Line Cinema live-action movies, is still highly praised for his performances even 25 years later and for many remains the quintessential Casey Jones. (Yes, TMNT fans, the first live-action movie turned 25 this past Sunday, March 29!)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is currently scheduled for release June 3, 2016.

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2" Title Possibly Revealed



Reports from this past weekend possibly provided some details on the sequel to last year's "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" movie from Paramount, which has started filming in New York.

One scene, filmed Wednesday at Madison Square Garden, had Will Arnett's character, Vern Fenwick, at a basketball game with his apparent girlfriend, played by Victoria's Secret lingerie model Alessandra Ambrosio. (Convenient, considering the last shot of the first movie.) During filming, the two shared a bag of popcorn and, apparently, at least one kiss.

During a podcast interview with The Lowe Post, LA Clippers star J.J. Redick detailed, that he, along with fellow Clippers Austin Rivers, Matt Barnes, Spencer Hawes, and DeAndre Jordan were featured in the filming along with five Knicks players. He also let slip that the title might be "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Half Shell."

Of course, shooting titles are subject to change, so it's hard to take any meaning from this.
