Occasionally I scour the web for movie news that I hadn’t seen or heard of before and this morning I saw this amazing footage on /Film. It’s a montage of fight training and choreography practice for the new Ninja Assassin film directed by James McTeigue and produced by the Wachowskis.
Do you remember Rain (he was in Speed Racer, which I’ve tried hard to forget), the Korean pop star? I know I didn’t. But after you see this footage, you’ll probably know him.
The flying ninjas in the video are from 87 Eleven, the stunt team who’s worked on 300, Watchmen, Matrix, and the Bourne films. These guys kick some serious butt.
Check out the video after the jump. It’s worth it. I felt like Keanu in The Matrix — Whoa!
Read more at /Film here from Peter Sciretta. It’s worth it.
McTiegue did V for Vendetta, which is one of my top 5 comic book films. We can only hope he does a great job with this one as well. It’s Ninjas — he won’t survive it if he blows it. 🙂
