Not sure what to think of the Koreans remaking my favorite John Woo movie THE KILLER yet, but there’s pros and cons at time of writing. Pros: John Woo supervises and produces, and John H. Lee (71: INTO THE FIRE) directs. Cons: 3D (never a good sign for quality filmmaking), nobody Josh Campbell is writing (adapting?) the screenplay, the film is – seriously – an English-language (!) version (despite featuring a Korean star and Korean-American director – what sense does that make?).
Hope for the best and expect the worst I’d say. Any which way, I’d bet anything that the remake will not live up to the original. More soon.
