Michelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo, and Raphael return to theaters this summer to battle bigger, badder villains, alongside April O’Neil (Megan Fox), Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett), and a newcomer: the hockey-masked vigilante Casey Jones (Stephen Amell). After supervillain Shredder escapes custody, he joins forces with mad scientist Baxter Stockman (Tyler Perry) and two dimwitted henchmen, Bebop (Gary Anthony Williams) and Rocksteady (WWE Superstar Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly), to unleash a diabolical plan to take over the world. As the Turtles prepare to take on Shredder and his new crew, they find themselves facing an even greater evil with similar intentions: the notorious Krang.
Speaking about the unique project, Niamh McCaul the General Manager of Paramount Pictures in Ireland said:
“In addition to Sheamus playing Rocksteady. We are delighted to have this opportunity to add some local talent to our release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows in Ireland. We hope audiences sing along with the boys as the end credits roll out across the country.”
