“In this version, Vernon is April’s cameraman, so they work together as opposed to him being her adversary,” says Arnett. “He’s a little reluctant when she starts talking about [how] she found these vigilantes and they’re turtles and all this stuff and he kinds of looks at her like she’s crazy.”

“Once the action gets going and she kind of gets in trouble, Vernon steps up and helps her and then he becomes part of it as well. He helps April help the Turtles.”

Arnett praises the film, especially the action.

“There’s some really great action sequences that I’m super psyched for people to see,” continues Arnett. “They were really fun to shoot; very physically demanding… I’m not going to say I’m an action star, but it was fun being in it.”

Directed by Jonatahn Liebesman and co-starring Megan Fox, William Fichtner and Mos Def.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will open in theaters on June 6, 2014,

    I know there’s probably no correlation between the images, but the header image reminds me of an article I read about a 4th live-action TMNT film that they were going to make back in the day that never came to see the light of day wherein the Turtles all got further mutations.
