An ancient hero returns with a vengeance! Looks like Ninja is more than ready to fight again, and we’re happy that we finally have something new about Isaac Florentine‘s upcoming Ninja 2! As you probably know, we’re talking about Florentine’s follow-up to 2009’s Ninja movie which starred Scott Adkins as an American martial artist named Casey Bowman who travels to New York City in order to protect an armored chest that contains the weapons of the last Kōga ninja.
So, the most important thing at this moment is that Isaac Florentine will direct Ninja 2 from David N. White‘s script, and that British action actor Scott Adkins is back in the business as well as Mika Hijii who starred as Namiko Takeda.
Another great news is that Kane Kosugi aka the son of the legendary 80’s Ninja actor Sho Kosugi is officialy on board to play the movie villain, character named Nakabara.
And now, time for the official synopsis:
Fight everyone and trust no one: it’s the code of survival practiced by martial-arts master Casey Bowman after his life of domestic bliss is shattered by a savage act of violence. Vowing revenge, the fearless American stealthily tracks the killer from Osaka to Bangkok to Rangoon with the help of a wise and crafty sensei. His only clues: a series of victims whose necks bear the distinctive mark of strangulation by barbed wire. Fighting to avenge as well as to survive, Casey must sharpen his razor-like responses and take his battle skills to the next level, even using deep meditation to fake his own death. His target: the sinister drug lord Goro, who is flooding the streets with deadly meth cooked at his remote jungle factory. To prepare for his ultimate confrontation, Casey must finally become an invisible warrior worthy of the name Ninja. But just when his prey is cornered, an unexpected twist shows Casey that his battle is only beginning: he truly can trust no one.
Sounds good, or what?
At the end of this report, let us also add that Ninja 2 starts filming this January in Bangkok, Thailand, and as usual – we’ll keep an eye on the whole thing, so make sure you stay tuned for more ninja-updates!
