TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES 2 Casts Tyler Perry in Baxter Stockman Role

Scientist Baxter Stockman

The director and actor Tyler Perry is going to play the cowardly scientist Baxter Stockman in the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.

The character whose inventions spell trouble for Master Splinter, ends up being mutated into the fly in some versions, but it’s currently unknown how Stockman will factor into the film.There’s also been rumblings of Beebop and Rocksteady appearing in the sequel.

Michael Bay is returning to produce the upcoming sequel, which features a script by returning screenwriters Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec. Megan Fox will reprise her role of April O’Neil along with William Fichtner as Eric Sacks and the debut of Stephen Amell as the hockey mask-wearing vigilante Casey Jones. David Green will direct. Production starts next month for a June 3, 2016 release.

Mmmm… I’m not really excited about the sequel. Childhood memories already tarnished because of the first one.
