SHO KOSUGI NINJA NEWS
On October 2, 1986, Sho Kosugi did his first television commercial since living in the United States. The commercial is for Honda, and should be aired in December of 1986 or January of 1987. Honda spent $250,000 on the set alone. It took one day of filming to do Sho's part, and another day to film the motorcycle part. Sho worked from 8:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. to film a 20 second portion of the commercial. As usual Sho's movements were excellent!
On October 26th, Sho held auditions for a double to be in his next movie with him, which will be filmed in Montreal, Canada and Can-Cun, Mexico. The movie is tentatively called Ninja-500, but that is the working title only, and will probably be changed. [Note: This film was never made.]
Sho is scheduled to leave on a promotional tour in January or February of 1987 for his latest movie, Rage of Honor. He will be going to France, Germany, England, Spain, Italy, Sweden, Holland and Denmark and Norway if time permits. He's going to be a very busy man for awhile.
That's about all of the Sho Kosugi news for now, but we'll keep you posted on future news.
