Normally I would just laugh off a movie concept like this…kind of like Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus. But much the same reason I endured Mega Shark, I am just curious to see what a film makers vision for aliens and ninja is going to be like. To date, the details are few, so I am sure that it will be sometime till we see the final product. But I am sure once this goes direct to video in the US, I will have it on my Netflix queue!
More after the jump YO!
According to Twitch.com and /Film.com, Alien vs. Ninja will be directed by Seiji Chiba and action director Yuji Shimomura, who previously collaborated on Death Trance. The basic plot synopsis that is floating around the net is as follows:
Once upon a time in Japan, there was a band of great Ninja warriors led by Yamata called Iga Ninja. One day they witness a flash in the sky and a roaring giant ball of fire crashes into the distant forest. The warriors rush into the deep woods in an attempt to identify the mysterious fireball. There, instead of finding predictable enemies, they are stunned to face never-seen-before creatures with claws and fangs, the aliens! The hungry brutal aliens start to savage and feast on the Ninja warriors, leaving only a few to survive. Yamata and his warriors swear to avenge their comrades’ deaths and risk their lives to challenge the aliens. However, none of the Ninja weapons, neither their swords nor their throwing stars, has any affect on the alien warriors. Now the Japanese greatest Iga Ninja face the biggest challenge ever!
Apparently, this fine film product is in post production and there is some footage that has been sighted in the wild, but I was unable to find any evidence. Those who have witnessed its awesomeness have claimed there to be lots of action, blood…and of course aliens and ninjas! This sounds like a recipe for disaster for most movie goers, but for the average Universal Dork reader, it sounds like a savory dish served to please.
This dork is inclined to believe that the following LEGO® short was an inspiration for the movie.
