You know, as much as I love the first two Matrix films I've been paying very little attention to the upcoming Ninja Assassin. Which is odd. It's not like the Wachowski's have produced a series of dogs, James McTiegue is a solid director, I'm actually a fan of Korean pop megastar Rain on screen and - his foolish comments about just how quickly he wrote the script notwithstanding - I'm a big fan of writer J. Michael Straczynski. But somehow the project - in which Rain stars as a young ninja who turns on his own clan - just didn't catch my attention until that very bloody photo to the left hit the web.
And now there's something new to pique the interest. With the film currently shooting in Germany, German TV has recently run a reel of behind the scenes footage showing the crew hard at work, including shots of Rain doing some fight and stunt work. And I gotta say the guy looks pretty good with a sword in his hand. Check it out below the break!
