Stephen Amell has been cast to play Casey Jones in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2″ for Paramount and Platinum Dunes.

Megan Fox and Will Arnett will be returning for the film. Its to be directed by David Green. The Plot details and information on other returning cast members are still unknown.

Stephen’s character is a loner who becomes an ally of the turtles and a love interest for O’Neil. Casey Jones is a fan favorite of the series going back to when Elias Koteas played him in the 1990 New Line pic.

Producers: Michael Bay is producing along with his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form.

Script Writers: Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec are penning the script.

Amell tested with a half-dozen actors over the weekend, but it was his chemistry with Fox that led to the studio eventually giving the role to the star of CW’s “Arrow.” No comment from Paramount on the casting.

A Little Fact:

The “Turtles” franchise is one of Paramount’s top properties following its success last summer, when it earned $191 million domestically — so much so that Paramount dated the sequel for 2016 before even locking down a director or cast.
