John Woo Re-Making His Movie, The Killer, for America
Action-film extraordinaire John Woo has decided to re-make the film that launched his career as a Hollywood director. The director has officially begun pre-production for the “English language retelling” of The Killer, his 1989 crime movie about an assassin’s last hit.
The re-make will be shot in 3D and is set to be directed by John H. Lee (A Moment to Remember, Saying Good-bye, Oneday) starring Jung Woo-Sung (Reign of Assassins, The Good, The Bad, The Weird). Woo will be sitting in the producer’s chair on this one.
Little else is known at this point, but you can expect lots of slow motion and general badassery.
