Zhang Yimou's wacky remake of the Coen Brothers' first feature Blood Simple will finally hit screens in the US this September 3rd, courtesy of Sony Pictures Classic. The film we be titled A Woman, A Gun And A Noodle Shop in the US and will be given a limited theatrical run. No word on specific cities just yet.
The original film was a noirish thriller set in Texas about a bar owner who hires a private detective to kill his wife and her lover. Yimou's remake, on the other hand is said to be a thriller-comedy set in a noodle shop in a Chinese desert. In addition, the film includes a rap song penned by the director. Yeah, you read that right. A Zhang Yimou rap song.
Check out the trailer and see for yourself.
