Speaking of martial arts films, Ninja Assassin, the long-awaited martial-arts action film from the Wachowski brothers and director James McTeigue – who’s also attached to helm X-Men Origins: Magneto – isn’t on the official Warner Bros. Comic-Con schedule, but rumor on the web is that it could have a secret screening, and may be a surprise addition to Warner Brothers’ Friday panel in Hall H.
Ninja Assassin, co-written by Matthew Sand and J. Michael Straczynski, is due in theaters on November 25, 2009, and tells the story of Raizo, one of the deadliest assassins in the world, who was taken from the streets as a child and transformed into a trained killer by the Ozunu Clan, a secret society whose very existence is a myth. Haunted by the merciless execution of his friend by the Clan, Raizo breaks free from them and vanishes, awaiting his chance to exact revenge. Ninja Assassin stars Naomie Harris, Randall Duk Kim, Rain, Sung Kang, Rick Yune, Ben Miles, Togo Igawa, Sho Kosugi, Stephen Marcus, Numan Acar, Yuki Iwamoto and Richard van Weyden.
If that happens, that could be one of a number of studio hat tricks during the Con, since there are a number of hot properties not currently on the Comic-Con complete schedule, which you can view RIGHT HERE.
