Say what you want about last year’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, but we loved it.  And we’re happy to report that filming of the sequel will kick off next month! 

The New York Daily News is reporting that filming locations include New York City and Buffalo. “There is no better way to project the character of this city than through television and film,” said Council Member Dan Garodnick. “And what’s more New York than pizza-loving ninjas and a talking rat?”

Platinum Dunes’ Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, and Andrew Form will be back to produce the new movie, penned by returning screenwriters Josh Appelbaum and André Nemec and directed by Earth to Echo’s Dave Green. As for casting Megan Fox is expected to return as April O’Neil along with William Fichtner as Eric Sacks.

Previous reports on the sequel have indicated that iconic characters Bebop and Rocksteady and even the Krang as potential villains, but none of this has been confirmed as yet.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is set for release on June 3, 2016.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
