Collin Chou (“The Matrix” trilogy) tells SCI FI Wire that he will be one of four leads in the Joel Silver-produced fantasy feature “Ninja Assassin”.
“Matrix” creators Larry and Andy Wachowski will produce with “V for Vendetta” director James McTeigue helming. Details on the project remain top secret for now.
Chou did confirm a longstanding rumor that he is playing a role that Jet Li turned down. Korean pop star Rain, who also starts in this Summer’s “Speed Racer”, is definitely set to play another of the four leads.
Chou played Seraph in all three of the Wachowskis’ Matrix films. Shooting is scheduled to begin late April/early May in Berlin.
