By MICHAEL FLEMING

Sho Kosugi, who toplined a series of ninja films that began with "Enter the Ninja," is returning for a tail-kicking encore. Kosugi will reprise his role in "The Return of the Ninja," a film being scripted by Steven de Souza..



I wonder if Golan/Globus will be back producing?

Wow!

Kosugi is like 60+ but his son Kane could do the job. Anyway, can't wait for the sequel. Should be fun.

Kane was absolutely amazing in the films he starred in with his dad.
Enter the ninja, Revenge of The Ninja & Ninja III: THe Domination were my favorites back in the day! Pray For Death was pretty cool too from what I remember. 60 or 160, I'm sure Sho Kosugi is still as hardcore as he was back in the 80's. I seem to remember that he opened up a couple of Dojo's in California a while back. In any event, I am definately looking forward to seeing whatever he puts out.

Silent, To my knowledge, they are all non-OAR FF discs. I don't even know if the latter two: Ninja III & Pray For Death, were even released period.

Was really into his movies when I was younger, but unfortunately they don't hold up well now. This one should be interesting.....straight to video?

my prayers, have been answered. however, i did pray for a kick ass cool ninja flick. i'll hold my breath on that last part.

samurai fiction was the last movie i saw that showed a decent ninja. red shadow, unfortantutely wasn't up to speed.
