Brian Tee To Star As 'The Shredder' In TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES 2!
Funny Or Die video made in part with Be Funny Studios. As of this week, however, he'll be bringing retribution as the iconic villiain, The Shredder in Earth To Echo helmer David Green's upcoming sequel installment, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2.
Tee's career is highlight by quite a few accomplishments, including Mortal Kombat Legacy 2 and the South Korean action hit, No Tears For The Dead, so it's nice to see him leap aboard this latest continuance succeeding last year's successful first from director Jonathan Liebesman. Variety states the actor's addition to the cast following actor Masamune Tohoru's performance in the same role last year, wherein the former will join returning cast members Megan Fox and Will Arnett as reporters April O'Neil and Vernon Fenwick, along with Arrow television series star Stephen Amell as Casey Jones and introducing actor Tyler Perry in the role of Baxter Stockman.
Other reports suggest the likely appearances of Shredder cohorts Bebop and Rocksteady, both initially created by David Wise and Peter Laird for the 1987 animated series based on Laird's original comic with fellow author Kevin Eastman. Updates are still pending on these, and who will return to play our title heroes as production continues ahead of the film's June 3, 2016 release. Tee is also set to star alongside Chris Pratt in Jurassic World this summer.
Michael Bay and his team are returning to produce Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 with a script from Andre Nemec and Josh Applebaum.
