Essential Entertainment and Lion Rock Productions have officially announced that they’re teaming to produce a 3D English-language remake of John Woo’s classic 1989 film “The Killer”.
The original follows an elite Asian assassin (Chow Yun-Fat) who risks everything to protect a beautiful singer whom he accidentally blinded during a gunfight. Jung Woo Sung (“Reign of Assassins,” “The Good, the Bad and the Weird”) is slated to star in the remake.
Director John H. Lee (“Oneday,” “Saying Good-bye”) directs from a script by Josh Campbell. Woo is producing and production will begin shortly.
