Opening this Wednesday is director James McTeigue’s (V for Vendetta) Ninja Assassin.  The film stars Asian superstar Rain in the title role and as you can put together from the title, it’s about Ninja’s.  And assassin’s.  The film is loaded with ninja action and blood, so if you’re into either of those things, this is pretty much a must see movie.  Finally, it’s produced by the Wachowski Brothers and Joel Silver (The Matrix Trilogy, V for Vendetta), and they’ve done a few things you might have liked…

A few days ago I sat down with Rain and James McTeigue to discuss making the movie, filming in Berlin, Comic-Con, and a lot more.  Check out what they had to say after the jump:

Finally, here are some clips from the movie.  And look for extended interviews with James McTeigue and Rain on Tuesday night/Wednesday.  I did a lot of press for Ninja Assassin so lots more coming.
