Brian Tee is the new Shredder for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

While most of the cast from last year's franchise starter are returning to their roles, the team behind Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 have apparently decided to go in a new direction for the villainous Shredder. News arrives via Variety that Brian Tee (The Wolverine) will be the man in the lethal armour for the new movie.

Though the plot is still mostly unknown, the sequel will see the turtles – performance captured and voiced by Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Pete Ploszek and Jeremy Howard – tackling threats new and old in New York City. Megan Fox and Will Arnett are back as April O'Neill and scuzzy cameraman Vernon Fenwick respectively, with Danny Woodburn once more providing the performance work for mutant rat mentor Splinter. Stephen Amell (Arrow) is playing Casey Jones, while David Green (Earth To Echo) takes over directorial duties and writers Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec return to provide the script.

While IMDB still lists Tohoru Masamune as Shredder, Variety reports that Tee will instead be filling the role. Perhaps best known for his roles in the likes of The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006) and The Wolverine (2013), Tee will be back on our screens this summer for Colin Trevorrow's (Safety Not Guaranteed) Jurassic World, which arrives on 11 June.
