Great news. Teddy Chen’s (‘Bodyguards and Assassins’) big budget reboot of the classic 70s, Hong Kong martial arts movie ‘Flying Guillotine’ has been given the green light, and filming starts this April with a release set for late 2011 early 2012. FilmBiz have more details here.
Synopsis: Arguably history’s first SWAT team, this covert assassination squad of the emperor was composed of young street thugs who had been killing for food and survival since they were kids. Trained to use the Flying Guillotines, the deadliest weapon ever invented, they competed with one another to be the best killer. Merciless and arrogant, they live life in the fast lane, until one day it was revealed they've been killing the wrong people for the wrong side. As they were ambushed by another team of killers, and the hunters became the hunted, they were forced to kill for their survival again or faced imminent annihilation.
