Now that OOTS is underperforming, the chances of a reboot are going up rapidly. So the question is, who would you cast for the next incarnation of the Turtles, supporting characters & villains?

Turtles

Asa Butterfield - Leonardo
Jacob Latimore - Rapheal
Ryan Potter - Donatello
Tom Holland - Michelangelo
--------------------------------------------------------------

Supporting cast

Ken Wantanabe - Master Splinter
Sarah Bolger - April O'Neil
Zac Efron - Casey Jones (seriously, guys, don't judge because of the Musical movies, he's dramatically improved as an actor
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The villains

Ian Anthony Dale - Oroku Saki/ The Shredder
Rila Fukushima - Karai (****ing perfect casting)
Anthony Mackie - Baxter Stockman [Secondary villain]
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Keep in mind this is for the first movie. Let me your casting choices ideas!

The Turtles:
Leonardo - Dylan O'Brien
Raphael - Freddie Highmore
Donatello - John Boyega
Michelangelo - Timothee Chalamet

Supporting Characters:
Splinter/Hamato Yoshi (I prefer the concept of Yoshi being Splinter, sue me) - George Takei
April O'Neil - Rosario Dawson
Casey Jones - Jake Gyllenhaal
Burne Thompson - Zach Galifianakis
Vernon Fernwick - Seth MacFarlane

Villains:
Oruku Saki/Shredder - Ken Watanabe
Karai - Tao Okamoto
Baxter Stockman - Kevin Hart
Krang - Tom Hardy
Bebop & Rocksteady - Key & Peele
Captain Tragg (General Traag's name in the IDW comics) - Idris Elba

For an added bonus:
I'm honestly not quite sure about who should direct, but I would have a shortlist between either Phil Lord & Chris Miller, Matthew Vaughn, or Edgar Wright.

Not too sure on the turtles. Spliter would be played by Mako, but obviously that can't happen.


April- Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Casey Jones- not sure. But he has to be built. No more scrawny casey


Baxter Stockman- Samual L. Jackson
Shredder- not sure. Cast someone japanese and scary looking. Someone unknown but talented for sure
Karai- Lucy Liu
Agent Bishop- Keeanu Reeves
General Krang- James Earl Jones or Tom Hardy
Krang (brain)- voice of Danny Devito doing his best Krang voice

Keep Bebop and Rocksteady the same, although tone the goofy down a lot. Aiden Gillen is in there too as a government agent that interacts with Tom Hardy's Krang.

"you're a big brain"
"for you"

The brain itself is general krang. His android body is just his body.

Edit: Nevermind I know what you mean

Dang, that's a perfect cast right there.

And Drew Goddard would be my director choice.

My dream reboot would be a Netflix or HBO series-- gritty 1984 NYC, smaller TMNT vs Foot-as-Yakuza story, played straight with a tiny pinch of sci-fi elements.

I'm thinking crazy perm on April, a'la 80s Mirage. Someone mentioned Rosario Dawson-- awesome pick! Maybe Christina Hendricks, Dascha Polanco from OITNB. Olivia Munn Mary Elizabeth Winstead played right could be interesting.

Casey Jones--- Traditional. Not even close to a pretty boy/bro actor type. A Sebastien Stan type. Hard to improve on Elias.

Honestly, I enjoyed the PD TMNT actors. Keep 'em.

If it were to be a show, it would likely be on MTV given how Viacom are the owners of the franchise. Not that I'm complaining given the success of Teen Wolf.

The Adversary: I dunno... CGI mo-cap from someone who does that


And Casey? I dunno. I see the name Zac Efron in this thread... he'd work.
