John Woo Producing "Killer" Remake

According to reports, John H. Lee will direct a 3D remake of director John Woo's 1989 Hong Kong action feature "The Killer", for producers Essential Entertainment and Lion Rock Productions.

Woo ("Face/Off") will produce from a screenplay by Josh Campbell.

South Korean actor Jung Woo-Sung will play criminal assassin 'Ah Jong' who accidentally damages the eyes of the singer 'Jennie', by his muzzle flash, during a shootout involving the 'Triad'.

He later discovers that if Jennie does not have an expensive corneal transplant operation, she will go blind.

To get the money for Jennie, Ah Jong decides to perform one last hit. Meanwhile, as the Triad sends enforcers to take him out, Ah Jong also must contend with police detective 'Li Ying' who is determined to bring him to justice.
