BREAKING NEWS: BREAKING NEWS REMAKE

Gold Circle will remake BREAKING NEWSGold Circle Films, the folks doing the EYE 2 remake (now called IN UTERO), have just cut a deal to remake BREAKING NEWS, Johnnie To's super-popular action flick that was his first movie to play Cannes. I don't get all the praise heaped on this one, but lots of people love it a lot, so fair enough.

The most interesting thing about the deal is that Media Asia will get a share of the gross revenue of the BREAKING NEWS remake.

Also of interest in the Screen Daily article is the news that Media Asia is handling sales of EXILED, the long-rumored sequel to THE MISSION.

(Thanks to Colin Geddes for the heads up on this one)
