Wife vs. Ninja Instantly Sounds Better Than Ninja Assassin


At this point it’s no secret that Ninja Assassin was an abysmal work of ninja-ness, but Hollywood seems intent on trying again. This time, instead of Warner Bros. letting The Wachowski’s Matrix-up the beloved genre, it is Dreamworks who is going rogue. And from the looks of things, it sounds like a pretty bitchin’ ride.

Dreamworks has picked up the Michael Besman pitch Wife vs. Ninja, says Variety. The story follows a Long Island housewife whose scientist husband is abducted by a beautiful young intern, who just so happens to be a bloodthirsty ninja assassin. The movie is said to be full of both action and laughs.

I’m in love. A sexy ninja kidnaps a nerdy scientist and his badass New Yorker wife sets out to beat some ass? Are we sure that this isn’t some b-movie pitch over at The Asylum? No? Awesome. I can’t think of any possible scenario in which this movie is not at least more entertaining than the pop-star filled, CG-bloodied Ninja Assassin. It leaves me feeling good about the ninja genre…
