In case you’re not fully caught-up, a quick Google search will land you at an interesting find that shows director John H. Lee was once attached to direct a remake of John Woo’s The Killer. That was before Woo himself took the lead on it as of last year and I’m only mentioning it because of all the Woo news we’ve been hearing about in the past week or so.
That said, I think it would’ve been fun to see how Lee applies his craft to a Woo project. He’s clearly proving himself as of late with the new teaser for Korean War flick, Operation Chromite and so if you’ve ever doubted this wouldn’t look as fantastic as it does now, suffice to say you can stop further doubting.
The full trailer is now out featuring Liam Neeson as Army General Douglas MacArthur who spearheaded the mission on Incheon in the Fall of 1950. Rounding out the hard-hitting cast are Lee Jung-Jae and Lee Beom-Soo for the film’s July release TBA.
Watch the new trailer below and witness the solid production values here for its potential blockbuster appeal.
