Master Shredder made a significant appearance in the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, but now the studio has replaced the actor with someone else. Who could this new actor be?
The actor in question is no other than Brian Tee, who made appearances in The Wolverine and several other films in the past.
The first movie, Tohoru Masamune was the Shredder, but we're not sure what went down why he is not reprising his role. The film was successful at the box office, but not successful in the eyes of critics. And rightfully so because TMNT did not feel like the traditional at all. Overly modernized to the point where the Turtles didn't even look that good.
The Paramount Pictures sequel is destined for a 2016 release date, so the studio is ramping up in preparation for production that is set to begin this year. The movie will feature all the Turtles along with Stephen Amell as Casey Jones, Megan Fox as April O'Neil, Will Arnett as Vern Fenwick and Tyler Perry as Baxter Stockman.
Michael Bay is expected to sit in the producer's chair as he did with the first outing. Many fans blamed Paramount for hiring Bay because they felt he helped in making Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle a terrible movie. He wasn't the director, so we can't jump on the bandwagon in support of the fans.
What's most important here is that the film is returning for a second shot at the pie, so the director and Michael Bay as producer will both have the chance correct all errors and give fans the TMNT movie they have been waiting for since the '90s.
Surely it will not be an easy task, but if the guys who are in charge look back at past failures, we're confident they will learn from their mistakes of old.
As for Tee, he's no stranger to big named movies. He made an appearance in Mortal Kombat: Legacy, Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift, and will appear in Jurassic World as the character, Takashi Hamada.
