Starring as April O’Neil, as Raphael, as Michelangelo, as Donatello and as Leonardo, rumor has it that Noji will be portraying the role of Karai, a character first introduced in the 1992 comic book series, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.”

According to sources, Noji was on the New York City set of “Turtles” filming for three months alongside the main cast and her role required a stunt double, which puts some weight into her portraying a character such as Karai, who is of Japanese descent (as is Noji) and one of the leading members of the Foot Clan, a ninjutsu clan best known to be controlled by The Shredder (). Recent iterations of the character find her related in some form to The Shredder.

Also starring in the film are as Vernon Fenwick, as Bernadette Thompson, and as Splinter.

Reps for Paramount and Noji were unavailable for comment at press time. The film is set for release on August 8, 2014 and is being produced by Nickelodeon Movies and Platinum Dunes, and distributed by Paramount Pictures.

    Seems like everyone starts to do better once they leave GH. Hopefully Kelly Sullivan will do the same.
