Sounds Like 'Casey Jones' Won't Feature In TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Reboot

According to a source for Geek Tyrant, the fan-favorite character won't so much as get a mention in the Michael Bay produced reboot; with Will Arnett's character seemingly filling that gap as a foil for April O'Neil (Megan Fox). Read on for more.



We had all probably figured as much since no actor was ever announced as being cast in the role (though these things can sometimes be successfully kept a secret) but Geek Tyrant reckon they've confirmed that Casey Jones will definitely not be making an appearance in the Michael Bay produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. They cite a source "very close to the production" as revealing that the character played by Will Arnett, Vernon Fenwick, has had his role expanded -- presumably to compensate and give April O'Neil (Megan Fox) someone to bounce off. So not a HUGE surprise, but disappointing nonetheless. One bit of potential good news is that the movie's action will apparently be "over the top greatness, comparable to The Raid". A silver lining? Only time will tell.
