New Video Interview: Ninja Assassin Director James McTeigue

November 20, 2009

James McTeigue and Rain

Hitting theaters next week for Thanksgiving is the most badass action-packed ninja movie you'll see this year - Ninja Asssassin. It's directed by James McTeigue, who got his start working as the Assistant Director for the Wachowski Brothers on The Matrix, then spun off and directed V for Vendetta on his own. Now he's back with his second movie, Ninja Asssassin, and it's awesome (I've seen it a few times and love it). A few months back, Warner Bros invited me to interview McTeigue while he was in Austin at Fantastic Fest. In promotion of the release next week, here's my interview with James, which went incredibly well.

Watch my video interview with Ninja Assassin director James McTeigue:

I've been a big fan of McTeigue ever since I first saw V for Vendetta (which is one of my all-time favorite movies) and have been excited to talk to him for a long time. I think he's a fantastic director with a lot of potential and a unique style. Ninja Assassin may get some flack for its poor story, but blame the writers, not McTeigue. In fact, I think he did a great job with the script and budget he had, and delivered one hell of an action-packed, bloody, and entertaining movie. And if you're wondering why the blood is so stylized, well, that's one question he answers in this. Ninja Assassin hit theaters everywhere on November 25th. See it!

    I'm not as obsessed with Rain as my K-pop obssessed friends are (and yeah they are dragging me along to see this movie) but I can't say that I'm not excited about it. I mean it's a movie called "Ninja Assassin." How could I not want to see it?
