It seems that the second installment in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Franchise, has now found its Casey Jones, in Arrows Stephen Amell.

According to Variety Half a dozen actors were tested over the weekend but by the end, Amell was the clear standout thanks in part to his chemistry with Megan Fox.

Production on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 – believed to be called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Half Shell – is set to start shortly, with Earth To Echo’s Dave Green taking over directorial duties from Jonathan Liebesman.

The character of Casey Jones first popped up in the comics as a violent vigilante who later teams up with the turtles and serves as a romantic interest to April O’ Neil. He typically wears a hockey mask and uses all manner of sports equipment to inflict pain on the scum of the streets.

With Amell former martial arts training for Arrow, we are sure that he will make a very welcome addition to the cast of TNMT, and we just hope that the script is a little better than its predecessor.

Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles 2 is set to hit cinemas July 3rd 2016.
