Oh baby! As a kid I LOVED the old school ninja films! For me, the best of them all was the first one I ever saw: Revenge of the Ninja starring Sho Kosugi.
Kosugi starred in no less than 6 North American Ninja films in the 80’s. He was THE MAN. So imagine my total glee when I cam across this little bit of news on FilmFodder:
Variety says Sho Kosugi, star of “Enter the Ninja,” “Revenge of the Ninja,” “Ninja III: The Domination,” and a slew of other sorta-classics, will reprise his ninja role in “The Return of the Ninja.” Kosugi will play a ninja master who travels to the U.S. to find an “American heir.”
Oh sweet heavens I’m a happy man. Time for me to start making ninja throwing stars out of ripped up pop cans again.
