Press Release: Dark Maze Studios Combines Ninjas, Dinosaurs, and Orson Welles in “Ninja the Mission Force”
Dark Maze Studios Combines Ninjas, Dinosaurs, and Orson Welles in “Ninja the Mission Force”
CHAMPAIGN, IL – 02/24/2012 – Dark Maze Studios has just debuted its new ten-part comedy web series “Ninja the Mission Force” on the show’s website, www.ninjathemissionforce.com.
Starring Ed Glaser and Brad Jones (“The Cinema Snob”), the weekly series follows Interpol agent (and sometimes ninja) Gordon in a race against a rival ninja to collect six sacred ninja rubber ducks, which together contain unlimited power.
Following the format of outrageous 1980s cut-and-paste action movies from notorious Hong Kong filmmakers Godfrey Ho and Joseph Lai, “Ninja the Mission Force” combines original ninja footage with re-dubbed public domain movie footage into one continuous storyline.
“This is a dream project for me,” explains Ed Glaser, who also produces the series. “The cut-and-paste films of Ho and Lai are just wonderfully bizarre and over-the-top, and this is an opportunity to take the ball and go even further. Thanks to writer Meagan Rachelle we have a tremendously absurd series that features John Travolta, gladiator midgets, and a camouflage ninja in space.”
The series also stars Ernest Borgnine and Sonny Chiba — in addition to the late Charles Bronson, Brandon Lee, and Orson Welles — all courtesy of archive footage.
New episodes premiere every Thursday. The series, trailers, photo gallery, and additional information are available at www.ninjathemissionforce.com.
