Manly man John Woo has directed the upcoming action thriller Manhunt at Media Asia Films. Actually it’s set to be a remake, but who cares, it’s John Woo, who we like to call the action surgeon. Check out the first high quality trailer above.
Based on a novel by Japanese writer Juko Nishimura, the story follows a prosecutor framed for robbery and rape who sets out on a one-man mission to clear his name.
Chinese star Zhang Hanyu and Japan’s Masaharu Fukuyama have been confirmed as the leading cast for the movie. Woo is also apparently happy with the freedom he had been given for the movie. So it could out to be something special.
