Michael Bay has cast William Fichtner as the TMNT’s main nemesis in his reboot of the franchise. You may remember Fichtner from Bay’s Armageddon, as well as The Dark Knight, Black Hawk Down, and Drive Angry 3D.
Fichtner will be playing Oroku Saki, better know to the masses as The Shredder. Here is what he had to say about playing the part:
“I play Shredder. It is cool. It’s one of those things that came along where I thought, ‘Really? Let me think about this for a minute.’ [Laughs] Then I was like, ‘Yeah, OK, this sounds like a journey.’ I’m very glad that it worked out, I’m really glad that I’m doing it.”
Synopsis (rumored): Aliens invade Earth and inadvertently spawn a quartet of mutated reptilian warriors, the Ninja Turtles, who rise up against them to defend the world.
The film also features Megan Fox, Alan Ritchson, Will Arnett, William Fichtner and will be directed by Jonathan Liebesman.
TMNT arrives June 6th, 2014.
