John Woo's MANHUNT Confirms Two Leads

Names began swirling some casting news earlier this week with word that four actors were possibly up for roles in Media Asia's forthcoming remake, Manhunt, from director John Woo. As of now though, the news reads as official with actors Zhang Hanyu and Fukuyama Masaharu set to lead the film when cameras commence rolling in May.

The film advances from director Sato Junya's 1976 film adaptation of Nishimura Juko's earlier novel, "Hot Pursuit", in which a lawyer must set out to clear his name after being framed and wrongfully accused of robbery, rape and multiple murders. Chan Hing Kai (A Better Tomorrow) and Gordon Chan (Painted Skin) are wtiting the script while Media Asia are tending to their slate at HK Filmart 2016.

A third casting addition may be announced in the next few months as for whether or not actress Ha Ji-Won or actor Lee Byung-hun, or others will join. Stay tuned.
