Twitch Film is reporting that that maestro himself John Woo, has signed on to direct a remake of the 1976 Japanese film Manhunt by Satô Jun’ya.

It starred Takakura Ken and was based on the novel Hot Pursuit by Nishimura Juko.

The original movie told the story of a prosecutor who was framed for robbery and rape, and who set out on a one-man mission to unravel the truth and get his name cleared.

A concept poster has been released and let’s just say it’s VERY John Woo.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
