Scott Adkins’ “Ninja” may never see the inside of an American movie theater, but that’s not the case in Malaysia, where the film is scheduled for a theatrical run starting in October 22, 2009. Also, the film is already up for pre-order in the UK via the online etailer Play.com, with a November 23, 2009 release date, and you can check out the DVD cover for it to your left.
A westerner named Casey, studying Ninjutsu in Japan, is asked by the Sensei to return to New York to protect the legendary Yoroi Bitsu, an armored chest that contains the weapons of the last Koga Ninja.
Of course, if you buy the DVD from Play.com, it’ll come in Region 2, so you’ll need a multi-region DVD player to actually watch the movie. Consider yourself warned.
Thanks again to the boys at Scott Adkins Fanz for the heads up.
In case you missed it, here’s the trailer for “Ninja”:
