Months after the Wachowski brothers-produced action movie "Ninja Assassin" has fallen into production in Germany, a behind-the-scene video has been unearthed. Appeared to be a tape from a German publication, the footages show the shooting of several action sequences as well as brief interview with its stars, Rain and Naomie Harris.
Displaying first a distant shot of a group of ninjas running in the middle of a road with cars speeding in both of their sides, the footage let out the combat between the three ninjas. This behind-the-scene look also exposes Rain's character covered in blood while running away from those who chase him.
Directed by James McTeigue, "Ninja Assassin" centers its story on Raizo, one of the deadliest trained assassins in the world. When he discovers that the organization raising him, the Ozunu Clan, is merciless, he breaks out of it to avenge his friend's death. One day, his path crosses Europol agent Mika Coretti who is investigating the Clan for political murder. Now, the two have to work together to reach their goal, destroying Ozunu Clan.
Featuring also the likes of Ben Miles, Sho Kosugi and Rick Yune, the movie is set to be released in theaters on January 16, 2009.
