Wellington: Charlize Theron will be seen battling ninjas in the new video for Brandon Flowers` debut single, Crossfire.
With her fighter avatar, the Oscar-winning actress has indulged Australian director Nash Edgerton`s childhood fantasy by killing the black-clad bad guys in the video.
The special effects-packed video shows Flowers kidnapped by ninjas before Theron rescues the helpless singer from ‘The Killers’ with some steely swordsmanship.
"When I was a kid I used to dress up as ninjas, so it was a way of getting that out of my system,`` Stuff.co.nz quoted Edgerton as telling a foreign news agency.
"It`s about a relationship where one person is trying to get the other out of trouble, I wanted to do something around the idea of Brandon Flowers being saved.
"I was wondering who could possibly do this kind of thing to him and then it came to me ... ninjas,” he added.
Theron agreed to take the lead role after confessing to being a big fan of ‘The Killers and Edgerton`s film ‘Spider’.
