Everything is moving along swiftly for the sequel of everyone’s favorite fighting turtles. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 has begun filming in New York City and we have some pics of reporter April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and the wiseguy vigilante Casey Jones (Stephen Amell). The images aren’t very revealing as to the storyline or the grit of either character, but these shots do show the actors at work on this new film.
One of the latest additions to the cast is actor/filmmaker Tyler Perry (Madea films) who will be portraying the mad scientist Baxter Stockman. Stockman was the developer of the “Mousers,” which were machines he created to seek out and destroy sewer rats. The often unstable sociopath has been a thorn in the sides of our halfshell heroes and their master Splinter over the years.
With Will Arnett (Vern Fenwick) on board, CM Punk‘s announcement @ C2E2 that he recently auditioned for a role in the flick, and the inclusion of mutant henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady, this film is building into quite a star-studded, must-see movie.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on June 3, 2016.
