Arrow’s Stephen Amell has just got something to keep him busy over his show’s summer break, as Variety reports that he’s signed up to ensure Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is a little bit hunkier than it might otherwise have been. He’ll be playing a character many thought should have been in the first movie, Casey Jones.
It won’t be too much of a stretch for him, as again he’ll be playing a vigilante, but instead of a hood and a bow, he’ll have a hockey mask and a baseball bat. Assuming they stick with the how the character was in the comics, he’ll end up helping the turtles as well as being a bit of a love interest for April O’Neill.
There are no details about the story, but Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec are once again writing the script, with Earth To Echo’s Dave Green directing.
The movie will start shooting in a couple of months, for release June 2016.
