Celebrity Casting for "TMNT"
The newest movie in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise (titled simply TMNT) has picked up some star voice casting. A report on the Patrick Stewart Network website states that Stewart will provide the voice for the insane tech-industrialist Max Winters. Meanwhile, an article in USA Today states that Sarah Michelle Gellar (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Chris Evans (Fantastic Four) will be cast as April O’Neil and Casey Jones, respectively, while Zhang Ziyi (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Memoirs of a Geisha) will play the villain Karai. The same article also states that Kevin Smith will have a cameo role as well, but that the turtles themselves will not have celebrity voices.
The 3-D CGI TMNT is scheduled for release on March 23, 2007.
