Venice Film Festival Adds Woo’s Manhunt

It feels like we’ve been looking forward to this movie forever but it looks like it may be out soon as John Woo’s Manhunt will be playing at the Venice Film Festival which starts August 29.

According to Deadline “Woo’s Manhunt (Zhuibu) marks the Hong Kong master’s return to the crime thriller genre. The film is a contemporary remake of the 1976 Japanese classic that starred Ken Takakura. The story centers on a Chinese man who is framed for murder in Japan and tries to clear his name as he dodges a manhunt organized by the police, and attacks of mysterious assailants. Woo was last in Venice to receive a Golden Lion for Career Achievement in 2010.”

Now, if you could just add it to TIFF this year that would be super.
