John Woo’s classic will be remade in 3D by Korean filmmaker John H. Lee (The Cut Runs Deep) and will star Jung Woo-sun (The Good, the Bad, the Weird). The remake is currently in pre-production.

The idea of a remake for the 1989 John Woo classic is nothing new. Back in 1992, director Walter Hill (48 Hrs) wrote a screenplay titled The Killer, based on the Hong Kong action film by John Woo. It was set to star Richard Gere and Denzel Washington. Due to scripting problems revolving around the main characters, the project was never realized.

Update: Beyond Hollywood indicates John Travolta, who previously collaborated with producer John Woo on Broken Arrow and Face/Off, is “entertaining the possibility” of starring in the remake. Perhaps he would play the Danny Lee character?

    I hope not, the whole thing is a bad idea.

    Well, The Killer’s already technically a remake of Le Samourai, so…Of course the last time Woo went that route, we got that godawful made-for-television version of Once a Thief.
