Ninja Assassin Finally

The trailer for the movie Ninja Assassin has finally been revealed.   The trailer looks pretty good.  It’s very dark, alot of fight sequences and Rain has dialog.  He is the lead character named Raizo.  If you don’t know Rain, he is a Korean superstar who is a singer, CF model and now actor.  A pretty well known star in Asia.  He made his American debut in Speed Racer with minimal dialog.  Ninja Assassin also stars Naomie Harris, Ben Miles, Sho Kosugi and Rick Yune.  The movie is out November 25, 2009, yep 2009 not 2010.  As stated earlier, this is not a live action Ninja Scroll for the fact it takes place in present time and as well as Warner Brothers plan to make the real Ninja Scroll with the original production house (Madhouse) who created the anime.   The film is directed by James McTeigue of V for Vendetta  and produced by Joel Silver and Wachowski brothers (well the Wachowskis now).
