Lana Wachowski reveals the reason why she cast Rain in her movies.
Directors, writers and producers Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski, who are siblings, were invited as guests on the January 3 episode of the MBC variety show, “Golden Fishery.” Despite being the producers behind many box office hits including “The Matrix,” it was their first time appearing on a talk show of any kind in their lives.
On air, Lana Wachowski highly praised Rain and shared why she cast him in the film, “Speed Racer.” She commented, “When I saw his performance videos and his movie, ‘I’m a Cyborg, But That’s Ok,’ I became mesmerized by his charm.”
Rain has so far been in two of Wachowski’s movies- “Speed Racer” and “Ninja Assassin.”
Meanwhile, “Cloud Atlas” which is co-produced by the Wachowski’s and Tom Tykwer, will premiere in Korea on January 9. The movie cast includes Bae Doona, Tom Hanks, Hugh Grant, Halle Berry, Susan Sarandon and Jim Sturgess.
