Turtles 2 to feature some familiar mutants

Love it or hate it this year’s Turtles film is getting the sequel treatment with things already in the works and it’s looking like some familiar mutants are going to be making an appearance.

It’s being reported that Bebop and Rocksteady are set to appear in the new film, and that Shredder will also be back. Jonathan Liebesman directed the first film however it looks like he won’t be returning for the sequel.

Supposedly Dave Green is being considered for directing duties, Green doesn’t have many projects to his name so far however he directed this year’s adventure family film Earth to Echo.

It seems that any issues which resulted in filmmakers of the Secret of the Ooze film back in 1991 to use replacement mutants (Tokka and Rahzar) are no longer an issue, with Bebop and Rocksteady on the way. 

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
