Remember how a script leaked a long time ago -- with Casey Jones in a key role -- and basically everyone was disappointed after reading it? Michael Bay and others claimed that script saw "the shredder" and, according to a recent report from Geek Tyrant, it sounds like they were telling the truth about that script being left in the past (at least to some degree). The website says they spoke with a source who's "very close to production" and, when they asked if Casey Jones will appear, they were told the man who loves to scream "goongala" will not be in the upcoming movie. However, they were informed that Will Arnett's character, Vernon Fenwick, will get additional screen time.
It's still possible the hero could appear on the big screen in the future, though. William Fichtner previously revealed his contract included three movies, so there's definitely room for Jones to eventually jump into the picture.
Viners, are you disappointed Casey might not be in the movie? Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is directed by Jonathan Liebesman and opens August 8th, 2014.
