John Woo Gets Back into Action in the First Trailer for ‘Manhunt’

Written by on August 16, 2017 


After a decade-long stint in Hollywood, which includes the likes of a bombastic Mission: Impossible entry and the infinitely rewatchable Face/Off, in the last decade, John Woo has mostly stuck to large-scale Chinese epics which haven’t quite made a splash stateside. However, that could change which is next project, which finds him returning to his action roots.

Set to premiere at Venice Film Festival before heading to Toronto International Film Festival is Manhunt, Wood’s remake of the 1976 Japanese thriller Kimi yo Fundo no Kawa o Watare. Following a man who is framed for a robbery and rape and attempts to get on the right side of justice, the first trailer has now landed. Due to it being an international look, the editing is fairly clunky, but all in all, it’s nice to see Woo getting back to high-octane thrills.

Check out the trailer and images below for the film starring Yasuaki Kurata, Jun Kunimura, Hiroyuki Ikeuchi, Nanami Sakuraba, Naoto Takenaka, and Tao Okamoto.

Action maestro John Woo returns to the mold of his classic The Killer with this remake of a classic 1970s Japanese thriller, about an innocent man who sets out to clear his name after his is framed for robbery and rape.





Manhunt will premiere at Venice and TIFF and hit Chinese theaters on February 16, 2018.
