The movie, which will be directed by James McTeigue, will have a script from Matthew Sand and comicbook favorite J. Michael straczynski. The Wachowski brothers will be producing the movie along with constant partner Joel Silver.
Korean star Rain will topbill this possible eye candy from the Wachowskis. Rain’s last Hollywood movie was Speed Racer, which was also a Wachowski project. Other stars involved in the movie are Naomie Harris, Ben Miles, Sho Kosugi, and Rick Yune.
Ninja Assassin will tell the story of Raizo, a deadly assassin who was trained by the Ozunu Clan. But driven by guilt because of the way the clan executed his friend, Raizo breaks free from the Ozunu and disappears, plotting his revenge on his friends’ killers.
