When I saw Scott Adkins high-kicking up a storm in a little unknown direct-to-DVD action movie called “Special Forces”, I kinda knew the Brit was destined for leading man status in the world of action movies. Of course I had no idea he was going to parlay roles in B-action movies into major Hollywood flicks (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine”), and now his own starring role in “Ninja”. Here’s your first look at Adkins in the upcoming film.
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.
Images via the blokes over at Scott Adkins Fanz, who dropped us an email to let us know they had nabbed these two sweet pics from the movie. The second one, in particular, makes me giddy like a little school girl. Yeah, it’s about ninjas. Yeah, it’s set in the modern day. Wachowski who?
“Ninja” is looking at a 2009 release.
