After his foray into Western action flicks, John Woo has returned to Asia to make RED CLIFF . The flick, an epic two piece war film is based on the events during the Three Kingdoms period of Ancient Chinese history, and is the most expensive Asian-financed film to date. The production was plagued by casting musical chairs, but rested on starring roles for Tony Leung (2046) and Takeshi Kaneshiro (HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS), both of whom are awesome. You can check out a promotional reel that was shown at Cannes BELOW:


Personally, I have loved John Woo all through his career. I even loved FACE/OFF. I mean, you could say his movies aren't classy or understated and you'd have a case, but then I'd say to you sir, what about the part when Nic Cage squeezes a choir girl's ass?
Extra Tidbit: Chow Yun Fat was one of the people originally cast in a starring role for this film. He'll next be seen instead, in DRAGON BALL. I'll let you make up your own punchline for that one.

I can't wait to see this. This was an intriguing period in history that must be viewed.

FYI, Tony Leung did not appear in House of Flying Daggers. That was Andy Lau, who coincidentally is another film based on the Three Kingdoms, which was released earlier this year.

Yes!

I'm so psyched for this movie! I love this era in Chinese history. Chow Yun Fat is still in this movie, he just doesn't have a major role. Instead he's playing Huang Gai, the General responsible for first charging out into battle and initially setting Cao Cao's fleet in flame.
