John Gaeta Talks About Ninja Assassin with Boing Boing
In one of the few times we'll ever link to the website Boing Boing, they've posted a new interview with visual effects supervisor John Gaeta. While he's best known for his work on The Matrix trilogy and Speed Racer, Gaeta also worked on James McTeigue's Ninja Assassin, which is (oddly) the focus of the interview. It's odd because we still haven't seen a trailer or anything else for the movie, so I don't know why they randomly have an interview with Gaeta about it, but they do. There's not much new footage to be seen in this, but it's a good watch for those who are fans of Gaeta's work or interested in Ninja Assassin. Check it out below!
Most of the fighting footage you see in this comes from an awesome fighting training video we posted back in January. Other than that, Warner Brothers has been keeping a tight lid on the movie, even though it's completely finished. Release date is currently set for November 25th. I love Gaeta's statements about CG and specifically this one: "There's a sort of misconception that actors can be replaced by CG humans, that's never going to happen, ever." Hearing all of this only makes me more excited for Ninja Assassin, whenever the hell we'll get to see it. In the meantime, we'll let you know the moment anything new pops up online.
