First Look: Zhang Yimou does Three Guns

Zhang Yimou works on Blood Simple

Zhang Yimou seems to surface in the oddest places. His next film will be a remake of the Coen Brother’s classic Blood Simple. The film is titled Amazing Tales: Three Guns. But really what got into Yimou to try something of this nature. The pictures give away a period that is not foreign to Yimou with his classics like Hero and House of Flying Daggers. But what is his plan with this cult hit.

The premise looks fresh enough but will it have legs in this setting. I hope the jokes won’t be on him when the film is finally released. The gun seems to refer to the weird looking thing in the first picture. But this film will be one of the sure fire hits in the native country. There are also talks about a two part story structure. We will have to wait and see on that one.

John has a keen sense of what ticks in the world of film. He can also be seen in three distinct short film titled Woken Shell, The Tea Shop in the Moon and The Waiting. Cinema has been the basic diet he has been on for the last 10 years. His personality can be judged by the choices of his films.
