John Woo’s classic gangster film A Better Tomorrow has already been remade in Korea in 2010 with mixed results now comes a new take on the story from director Ding Sheng.
Sheng’s film traces the journey of a former smuggler who attempts to start his life anew after his release from prison and repair his relationship with his estranged brother. But that is not counting on gangland betrayal, a botched drug deal and a family tragedy. It stars Darren Wang, Ma Tianyu and Wang Kai, who will be playing Mark “Gor” Lee (the character made famous by Chow Yun-fat in the original).
