The New "Ninja Turtles" Have Been Cast

Three more names are set to play the heroes in a half shell in the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" at Paramount Pictures and Platinum Dunes.

Pete Ploszek ("Parks and Recreation") has been cast as Leonardo, Jeremy Howard ("Breaking Bad") will play Donatello and Noel Fisher ("Hatfields & McCoys") will play Michaelangelo. They join the already announced Alan Ritchson as Raphael.

Jonathan Liebesman helms the project which will utilize performance capture techniques to render the turtles.

Megan Fox is reportedly set in the female lead, while the villain Shredder is expected to be cast shortly. A June 6th 2014 release is planned.
