"Ninja Assassin" will hit world theaters

Starring South Korea pop star Rain (Jung Ji-hoon, 28) as a main character, "Ninja Assassin" will hit world theaters, starting on Nov. 25 in the United States.

Rain has already made his debut in Hollywood by starring in a supporting role in "Speed Racer," produced by Larry and Andy Wachowski of "The Matrix."

In their next film, "Ninja Assassin," the Wachowski brothers set the star as a leading character.

Produced in Berlin Germany and inspired by traditional Japanese culture, "Ninja Assassin" plots a ninja's betrayal and revenge.

In the movie, Rain appears as Raizo, taken from the streets and raised into one of deadliest assassins in the world, by a mysterious ninja clan. After a cruel murder of his friend by the clan, Raizo turns away from the clan and prepares for revenge.

Besides the singer, the film stars Naomie Harris from "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" (2006), and Ben Miles from "V for Vendetta," (2005).
