[clip] Revisiting November 2009: Silver talks “Raizo.”

Written by: Stephe Thornton, Managing Editor ^@@^

Producer Silver, co-star Rick Yune, Rain, and Director McTeigue at the movie premiere in L.A.

Hollywood super-producer Joel Silver, owner of Silver Pictures and co-owner of Dark Castle Entertainment, talks about Rain, producing movie Ninja Assassin, and more in this interview from around the time of Ninja Assassin’s U.S. premiere in November 2009. As we understand it, Mr. Silver will be leaving his 25-year relationship with Warner Bros. studios at the end of this year.

We truly appreciate him giving Rain the shot that he did. Even after Jang DongGun’s starring role in The Warrior’s Way, a South Korean in a leading role in Hollywood is still pretty unheard of, but doggone gutsy and COOL. (For Rain, it’s going to pay off in the long run. Just you watch.)

It will be interesting to see what direction Mr. Silver goes in from here, in 2013. More blockbuster badassery, or retirement?

With his résumé, he’ll be Golden either way.

  1. I don’t think he’s gonna retire. He’ll probably will put his own team together without a big Kahuna (studio) to tell him what to do. Big studios are going under, thanks to the credibility of independent movies and the fact that people aren’t going to movies as much as they used to thanks to nexflix and other sites that let you see movies at home. Now, smaller filmmakers are joining together to make movies. That’s the future and he’s moving toward that end.


  2. Guys like him don’t ever really retire. He’ll be 90 years old when somebody wheels him out at the Oscars to receive his lifetime achievement statuette. (SMILES)
