Variety is reporting that actor Brian Tee has been cast as Shredder in 2016's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. Tee presumably replaces Tohoru Masaume, who played Shredder in the 2014 original movie, although no reason was given for the re-casting.
Tee, who was recently in The Wolverine and has a role in the forthcoming Jurassic World, joins the recently cast Stephen Amell (as Casey Jones) and Tyler Perry (as Baxter Stockman) and the original cast for the Michael Bay-produced sequel to 2014's original. David Green will be directing, based on a script by Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 is scheduled to be released June 3, 2016.
