The Killer John Woo Chow Yun-fat Banner

Back in 2011, a 3D remake of THE KILLER was announced, and at the time A MOMENT TO REMEMBER's John H. Lee was set to direct it with Jung Woo-Sung (THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE WEIRD) in the lead role, with original director John Woo serving as a producer. Obviously that version didn't happen, but during a recent conversation with Screen Daily at the Tokyo International Film Festival, Woo said it will be his next project.

Woo told the site that the plan is to move on to the remake after he finishes work on MANHUNT, his next directorial effort, which is a film adaptation of Juko Nishimura's Japanese novel Kimi Yo Fundo No Kawa No Watare.

I have never left. I still enjoy working with Hollywood. I still have a couple of projects developing in Hollywood. So after Manhunt, I probably will go back to Hollywood to make another action thriller. I’m going to make The Killer in an American version.

The only reason I'm even slightly ok with this is because of John Woo's involvement, but with the right director, maybe it won't end up being as bad as most other remakes. Who do you think should helm the planned THE KILLER remake?

I'd rather see him just work on an original shoot-em-up flick than this.

If John Woo would like to remake his own film, I would like him to remake Hard Boiled. That movie could use an update. The original was super fun with over the top action scenes. If the remake could be along that line, I'm all for it.

I would have seen more an Hard Boiled remake than the Killer... 2 greats movies by the way, hard Boiled maybe the greatest action movie ever made IMHO.
Did you see Bullet In the Head ?

I did, Ernesto, but I wasn't into it like I did with Hard Boiled and The Killer. Among the two (Hard Boiled and The Killer), I like Hard Boiled better. Hard Boiled is already great, don't get me wrong, but it could use a bit of an update. John Woo needs to make another Hollywood action movie. Red Cliff 1&2 were great but I miss his crazy action movies like Hard Target and Broken Arrow.

Well he did create a videogame sequel to Hard Boiled. It was okay, plays more like a Max Payne clone though.
