Ninja - That's all you need to know.

Scott Adkins is the actor / stuntman / martial artist who is portraying Deadpool / Weapon XI (along with Ryan Reynolds of course) in the forthcoming film X-Men Origins: Wolverine - I mentioned that a while back. He has starred in The Bourne Ultimatum, Unleashed (Danny the Dog), The Medallion, The Pink Panther, Hollyoaks and Holby City. He gets around. That's him below.
Now his time has come to play the lead in a film.
  • Will it be a romantic comedy?
  • Maybe a film looking into the depths of one man's soul?
  • Or could it be a film where he plays a kick-ass Ninja?
Pick one of those three and see if you are right.
You guessed it. Option 3. He will be starring in Isaac Florentine's upcoming martial arts extravaganza, Ninja. What's not to love about that title.
A westerner named Casey (Adkins), studying Ninjutsu in Japan, is asked by the Sensei to return to New York to protect the legendary Yoroi Bitsu, an armored chest that contains the weapons of the last Koga Ninja.
Great synopsis as well. Tells you everything you need to know. Quiet Earth dug up the photos on this post (they have a few more so check them out as well) and they show that it will look lovely as well as having kick-ass Ninja action.
