John Woo Signs on for Manhunt Remake

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.
