William Fichtner has revealed he has committed to return for a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel.

But the actor, who plays villain Eric Sachs, admitted he doesn't know if he will be back yet.

"I am signed on for a sequel and I believe the studio has announced that they're making one already. I'm not sure if I'm in it; but I'd love to be in it," he said.

"T he truth about it is that when it comes to sequels with something like that, four people that are guaranteed to be in that are four turtles and April (O'Neil)."

William, who is best known for his roles in Elysium, The Lone Ranger and TV series Prison Break and Crossing Lines, said his son had an impact on his Turtles role.

"I did (watch the cartoons) a little bit, only because my son was a fan of that. But I have several nieces and nephews that grew up in the Eighties, and I think every single one of them had one birthday party, which was a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle theme, or the lunchbox, or something, so I was certainly aware of it."

The 57-year-old actor continued: " I just saw it for the first time two weeks ago. I had my 12-year-old with me. I'm happy to say that he loved it as much as I loved it."

Crossing Lines can be streamed exclusively now on Amazon Prime Instant Video.
