I am a Creative Writing Graduate from the University of Maine (Machias), and a Desktop Publishing 'grad' from the University of New Hampshire's Professional development program. I am a volunteer choir director and I also draw and write a little in my free time. I also enjoy hiking, gardening, and any other chance that I can be outside.. :)
Well, five minutes after posting the new Movie pics, I find this…
William Fichtner has been added onto the cast of the New Movie as a “Character with Iconic Stature”.
For those not familiar with the name, you’ve seen him in various movies and shows such as SEAL Team Six: The Raid On Osama Bin Laden, Entourage and The Dark Knight.
Considering his acting background, and the recent photos of a seemingly Para-Military style Foot Clan, we may have our Shredder. The Rumor Mill’s been grinding away at stories of a crazed Soldier who’s got the turtles in his sights, and this… may or may not cement that idea in some fans’ minds. I’m very curious to see how the whole origin story is going to play out, if this is the situation.
I want to see more info before I make a judgement, but the speed that things are coming out is awesome. We’ll be getting our answers soon enough…
If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s all here… we’ve finally caught glimpse of the new Logo, which looks Very nice, and we’ve been treated to peeks of April, some well-known co-workers, trampolines and Three of our Mo-Capped Turtles in a wicked bad situation. I just had to pull away from FCBD stuff to share this – It’s comin’ out of the woodwork!
Well, this Saturday I’ll be roaming around both at JetPack Comics in Rochester, NH as well as Shellback Artworks in Wells, ME.
I’ll be around in a black shirt and red hair bandanna taking photos – if you see me, stop over and say hi!
For those that can’t be in the Northeast, I’ll be doing a write-up on the day, and review on the new TMNT Animated Adventures comic, and whatever else I can find… maybe a giveway, if I can beat the crowds.
Well, we’ve just gotten ourselves an update today, courtesy of JoBlo:
Last week, the first of the four NINJA TURTLES in the Michael Bay-produced reboot was cast, bringing in former Aquaman Alan Ritchson for the role of Raphael. Now, the other three turtles have filled their shells, with Pete Ploszek (Parks and Recreation) playing the leader, Leonardo, Jeremy Howard (Breaking Bad) taking on the bo-staff wielding Donatello, and Noel Fisher (BATTLE: LOS ANGELES) portraying the wise-cracking Michelangelo. All of the actors are new on the scene, which was probably a big consideration when the studio addressed the budgetary issues a while back, causing the film to be delayed. It makes perfect sense, really, especially when the actors will be virtually unrecognizeable as themselves anyway.
(Picture belongs to the JoBlo Network, with much appreciation! Now let’s see how long it takes for TMNT fans to start Turtlizing these guys’ faces…)
According to the article, the movie is slated to come out in June 6, 2014. Now we just have tto wait and find out about Splinter, Shredder, and possibly Casey Jones…
