If it weren’t cool enough news that Earth to Echo‘s Dave Green will be directing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel, Platinum Dunes producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form revealed monstrous news in the interview over at Omelete.
“We can say that Bebop and Rocksteady are in the film, and Casey Jones is a character that we love and we’re trying to fit him in as well,” Form told the foreign online mag.
For those unacquainted, Bebop and Rocksteady, pictured above, are two gang members that were mutated by Shredder and Krang, thus becoming his henchmen.
They were exclusive to the cartoon series, which is why they previously had not been included in any movie. Now, it seems, Paramount and Platinum Dunes have acquired said rights, which makes me even more excited to see Krang and the mother fucking Technodrome!
Casey Jones, pictured below, has been a fan fav sidekick to the turtles. He’s a badass street vigilante that was played by Elias Koteas in the first TMNT films.
