Interesting. You know how there are all those pretentious ass-holes that shit on the idea of Hollywood remaking a foreign film? I wonder what they think about a foreign filmmaker remaking an American film?

Sony Pictures Classics has announced its production partnership and the acquisition of rights in North America, Latin America, Australia and New Zealand to Zhang Yimou’s currently untitled film, a remake of the Coen Brothers’ 1984 debut feature, Blood Simple. The film will be produced by Bill Kong.

Zhang Yimou stated, “I am very happy working with Sony Pictures Classics again, they have always done a great job and I am looking forward to be with them again.”
Zhang’s film will be a thriller-comedy remake of Joel & Ethan Coen’s Blood Simple, set in a Chinese noodle shop in a sand dune-specked desert, rather than a bar in an unnamed Texas town. The owner of the noodle shop’s seemingly simple plan to murder his adulterous wife and her lover quickly spins out of control after the introduction of a gun into the lives of characters more accustomed to knives and swords.
