Rick Yune, Naomie Harris and Ben Miles have joined the cast of NINJA ASSASSIN, produced by the Wachowskis and directed by James McTeigue, per THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER.
The martial arts actioner stars Korean singer/superstar Rain, who is also appearing in the Wachowski-directed SPEED RACER, as a man brought up in an orphanage that serves as a "ninja farm." He turns his back on tradition to make his way in the world, bringing him into conflict with a ninja (Yune) from the clan.
Yune plays the antagonist in the Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures film. "Not to give too much away, (but) my character stays within what he was brought up with, and they go up against each other," Yune told the REPORTER. "I’m not a heavy. The characters are ninjas, they are assassins, and there's this mix of morality the Wachowskis are exploring."
Harris plays the female lead. Joel Silver is producing via Dark Castle with Grant Hill.
