Chou is a Ninja

03.18.2008

Collin Chou, known by most of you probably as 'Seraph' in THE MATRIX RELOADED/REVOLUTIONS, has outed himself as one of the four leads in the Wachowski Bros' next project, NINJA ASSASSIN. "I don't think I'm supposed to talk about it, but I am working with the Wachowski brothers next month, and I look forward to working with them again on a major movie," he said. Hopefully he was allowed to talk about it, since he gave that information up pretty fast. In fact, yes, he didn't even stop to start a new sentence before confirming the story, which I think we'll all agree isn't very 'ninja'. Details on NINJA ASSASSIN are pretty sketchy at the moment, all we really know is that it is an 'original' idea, and that Korean sensation 'Rain' aka. Jeong Ji-Hoon (SPEED RACER) will also be starring. The Wachowskis, will also only be writing and producing, with James McTeigue (V FOR VENEDETTA) assuming directorial responsibilities.

Usually you can tell from an actor what kind of project it's gonna be. You can say this guy made __, __ and __, so you can expect this will be good. But there is no such pattern with Chou so heaven knows what this will be like. In the last two years he made FEARLESS and DEAD OR ALIVE. That's pretty much the same as singing the hook in a Dr Dre song, and then appearing as guest speaker at a Klan meeting.
Extra Tidbit: Chou has 8 brothers and 4 sisters.

To Racci:

Who said I was looking exclusively at Hollywood? I just said I'm looking for Ninja movies. I expect the good ones to be Asian. I'm not excluding Hollywood, but I'm not looking primarily at Hollywood. I just want some good movies about Ninjas. If it's good, I don't care who makes it.

Besides, I have plenty of Asian movies; I have Samurai movies, I have Yakuza movies, I have Kung Fu movies, but I still don't seem to find a lot of Ninja movies. Even if you go to IMDb and click "Ninja" as

Besides, I have plenty of Asian movies; I have Samurai movies, I have Yakuza movies, I have Kung Fu movies, but I still don't seem to find a lot of Ninja movies. Even if you go to IMDb and click "Ninja" as a plot keyword, there are very few real Ninja movies listed. There are shows and video games galore, but not a lot of good looking movies.

So yeah, I expect the good ones to come from Asia, but what are they?

Fearless

D.O.A was a fun watch but still nothing that great but Fearless was amazing. This guy was badass in the matrix movies and it would be awesome seeing him in more martial arts flicks. Can't wait to see him in The Forbidden Kingdom... not because of him per say, but mostly because I am a huuuge fan of Jet Li.

For some reason, I thought of Taiwan pop sensation Jay Chou when I read the title.

Thankfully, it's Colin Chou, NOT Jay Chou. All they need is to Yuen Wo Ping back as choreographer, and I'm sold!

Me and my bro were talking JUST YESTERDAY (no lie) about needing to find some ninja movies. I mean, I realized I don't know of any, unless you count Gymkata which I haven't seen for a long ti...LONG!... LONG time. Understand when I say it's been a WHILE! It must've been at LEAST I don't know how many years. And I don't remember loving it. But I know there've gotta be ninja movies out there! I mean, they're friggin' ninjas! Who doesn't love ninjas? Nobody; that's who. So where are the

But anyway, yeah, I'm there when this is released.
