Ninja AssassinA completely nuts new video has been uncovered that shows the stunt team from the new movie Ninja Assassin practicing their choreography for the movie.

The video is filled with some amazing sword fighting and martial arts work, so you have to check it out if you’re into that kind of thing. If this video is any kind of sample as to what we can expect when the movie comes along, then we’re in for some sort of treat here, folks. Especially if this gets a hard R-rating as it looks to be getting.

The movie is directed by James McTeigue, who directed V for Vendetta. The Wachowski Brothers produced Vendetta for him and are also producing this movie along with Joel Silver. Current hot hand J. Michael Straczynski (Changeling) wrote the script.

Forbidden PlanetChangeling screenwriter and Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski spoke to MTV about his upcoming script for Forbidden Planet and the direction he wants to see it go.

He assured people that this won’t be some cheesy retro look like the original because when the original came out, that was all new and scary to people; that was what people hadn’t seen before, and that’s the kind of thing he wants to accomplish with this new project.

Straczynski mentioned how he saw the project and watched it going from studio to studio and when it was about to become available again, he went to producer Joel Silver and went for it.

I told Joel [Silver] this is how you do ‘Forbidden Planet’ without pissing on the original that no one has ever thought of. When I told [the idea] to him, his eyes lit up. It’s not a remake. It’s not a reimagining. It’s not exactly a prequel. You’ll have to see it. It’s something that no one has thought of when it comes to this storyline.

‘Forbidden Planet’ Remake Finds A Writer

Forbidden PlanetForbidden Planet is one of those projects you hear about that’s been attached to so many names and so many studios, you just don’t know what’s what anymore. Currently, however, the remake-revision of the 1956 sci-fi movie is trying to get going again with J. Michael Straczynski hired to write the script.

Straczynski wrote the new Clint Eastwood movie Changeling, but does have a background in the world of science fiction, having created Babylon 5 and is working on multiple other projects including the Wachowski Brothers’ Ninja Assassin.

The 1956 Forbidden Planet follows an expedition to a far away planet to check on a team of scientists. They find two of them, a doctor, his daughter and a man who discovered an alien technology that has doubled his level of intelligence. It’s being produced by Joel Silver.

Lethal WeaponOK, while it’s not 100% guaranteed never ever to happen, it does now look like we won’t be seeing Lethal Weapon 5.

As you may recall, producer Joel Silver was just waiting to hear back from Mel Gibson and it appears that Mr. Gibson was heard from. The LA Times spoke to Lethal Weapon‘s first director Richard Donner, who said said that Gibson is a no-go.

Mel turned it down. I would like to think that Mel turned it down because I wasn’t involved. Knowing Mel, I would like to think that. Would that be the kind of thing he does? It sure would be.

‘Lethal Weapon 5’ Waiting On Mel Gibson; May Be On Fast Track

Lethal WeaponIt looks like the only one thing keeping Lethal Weapon 5 from moving forward at the moment is Mel Gibson and his seemingly hard-to-obtain blessing.

Shane Black — who wrote all previous Weapon films (and The Monster Squad!) — has written the 5th movie’s script and is hoping to direct after successfully writing and directing the extremely entertaining Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.

All things now rest in the hands of Gibson himself and whether he wants to step back into those shoes again. My presumption is that it won’t be too long before he gives the treatment a run through and decides, but you never know.
