I can't believe it's already been almost a full decade since NINJA ASSASSIN exploded onto movie screens, thrilling audiences, and for many of us re-igniting the excitement, escapism, and martial arts awe we felt during the 1980s ninja movie craze that was a such a big part of our youth. Another huge reason for our excitement was the return of the legendary martial artist, actor, and ninja movie superstar Sho Kosugi, who starred in the very best ninja movies from that period (Revenge of the Ninja, Pray for Death, etc…). NINJA ASSASSIN was a great tribute to those films and Mr. Kosugi, and merged the old-school martial arts ninja movie with a Japanese anime-inspired look, all done on a big scale, and it was AWESOME. The film has continued to find new fans as more and more people have discovered it on Blu-ray, DVD, video on-demand, etc… With everything old becoming new again and nostalgia remaining as strong as ever, this is the perfect time for a long-awaited sequel reuniting the principal cast, including @rain_oppa as Raizo, @naomieharris as Mika, and the one and only @shokosugiofficial as either Ozunu's brother (as was reportedly planned), or better still as Lord Ozunu himself who we find out survived what seemed to be his certain death by switching places with his kagemusha (double) just before Raizo's final strike and having spent years recovering and rebuilding his ninja army in order to enact vengeance on him once more. If you'd like NINJA ASSASSIN 2 to happen, please join me in letting @legendary pictures and @wbpictures know how much we want it. #ninjaassassin #ninjamovie #ninja #revengeoftheninja #shokosugi #rain_oppa #naomieharris #legendarypictures #darkcastleentertainment #silverpictures #warnerbros

@shokosugiofficial Dear Sho Kosugi-sensei, a VERY HAPPY 70th BIRTHDAY to you. For the past 35 years, you have been my greatest idol, providing me with countless hours of entertainment and inspiration through your films, TV shows, books, etc... It was seeing your incredible skills in "Revenge of the Ninja" on my own birthday in 1983 that inspired me to study the martial arts, develop a life-long admiration and appreciation for Japanese culture and history, and motivated me to overcome adversity and challenges that life inevitably throws one's way. Thank you for everything. I wish you continued health and happiness into your 71st year and beyond. Kanpai! #shokosugi #shokosugiofficial #ninja #ninjas #ninjamovie #entertheninja #revengeoftheninja #ninjaassassin #actionmovie #actionfilms #actionstars #karate #karatemasters
