When I got the offer to work on that film I thought it was rather bold to produce a movie called "Ninja Assassin". After I had seen the stunt rehersals and the moves these parcour guys were capable of it became pretty clear what direction James McTeigue was following.
We had done "V for Vendetta" before and I knew it wouldn't become just another trashy martial arts movie. But take a look for yourself and tell me what you think. The trailer is now online and can be found here. The quick sketch on the left was based on a storyboard frame from Todd, illustrating one of the designs for a torture pole.
