After the crappy news that production of the remake of the 70s classic period martial arts actioner The Flying Guillotines (about a team of ruthless, crack assassins versed in the use of a weapon that can decapitate its victims instantly) had hit the buffers hard, our cup is once again half full, with word that the production is back on track - under new director Andrew Lau. What happened to the films original helmer Teddy Chan remains a bit of a mystery, but production is set to restart in August, so we can expect the movie to appear in early 2012!
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.
