Meet our new Shredder! William Fichtner
has just confirmed that he will (once again) play a bad guy, this time – in Jonathan Liebesman
‘s upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
movie! Is anyone actually surprised? Guess not, after all, the iconic stature
rumor from May was enough to make us wonder…
But things are pretty clear now. And this news comes straight from Fichtner, who, in an interview with HuffPost TV Canada
I play Shredder. It is cool. It’s one of those things that came along where I thought, “Really? Let me think about this for a minute.” Then I was like, “Yeah, OK, this sounds like a journey.” I’m very glad that it worked out, I’m really glad that I’m doing it.
So, Fichtner will join the cast which already includes Megan Fox
as April O’Neil, Alan Ritchson
as Raphael, Jeremy Howard
as Donatello, Pete Ploszek
as Leonardo, Noel Fisher
as Michelangelo, Will Arnett
as Vernon Fenwick, and Danny Woodburn
as Master Splinter.
Let us once again remind you that the project would mark the fifth big screen outing for the sewer-dwelling heroes Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael as well as their master Splinter, based on the characters created by Laird and Kevin Eastman.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
is produced by Nickelodeon Movies
and Michael Bay
‘s production company Platinum Dunes
, and in case you forgot – it’s already set to hit theaters on June 6th, 2014.
