Michael Bay and Jonathan Liebesman's Ninja Turtles reboot is casting up. Last week, Alan Ritchson (Aquaman from Smallville and soon to be Gloss in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) was the first actor picked (as Raphael). Now the other three (teenage mutant?) ninja turtles have also been selected.
Pete Ploszek will play Leonardo, Jeremy Howard will play Donatello and Noel Fisher will play Michelangelo in the film. These will be performance capture gigs that, according to Deadline, should result in a "more sophisticated Avatar-like approach."
Clearly, the filmmakers are not going for big-name talent to play the turtles, leaving that role to be filled by Megan Fox (who was previously cast as April O'Neil). Reportedly the villain Shredder will be picked soon as well.
Ninja Turtles is scheduled for a June 6, 2014, release.
