Collin Chou sure didn’t wait anytime expanding on his upcoming project with the Wachowski brothers. After this article with MTV where he mentioned the project, but not much about it, he told Sci Fi Wire even more — namely that yes, this will be the ninja movie the Wachowski is currently working on with Korean singer/actor Rain (currently going under the working title “Ninja Assassin”, although I have speculated that it is in fact a live-action version of “Ninja Scroll”), and that it will have four main characters, of which Chou will play one, and Rain another. That leaves, of course, two still uncast roles.
“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,” Chou said in an interview at the Wizard World convention in Los Angeles over the weekend. “It will be in Berlin.” As for the film’s title, Chou said: “I don’t know if that’s the final name yet.” Chou played Seraph in all three of the Wachowskis’ Matrix films.
Chou said that the Wachowskis’ ninja movie starts production in late April or early May. “And this is a part that is built around me,” he said. “They have wanted to have me in a larger part, and I was waiting and waiting for a long time for it to happen. I am one of four of the main characters in this movie. It is a great honor to be on board.”
Color me excited.
