Killer new role for Ny­ong’o?

The Galloway News - - REVIEWS -

Fol­low­ing years of spec­u­la­tion, John Woo has fi­nally con­firmed he will direct a re­make of his iconic ac­tion film The Killer – and he is al­ready eye­ing a new lead star.

Lupita Ny­ong’o (pic­tured, right) is the Chi­nese helmer’s first choice to play an as­sas­sin in sim­i­lar style to Chow Yun-Fat’s char­ac­ter in the 1989 orig­i­nal.

In other, more con­crete, cast­ing news, Michelle Pfeif­fer will play a queen in Dis­ney’s Malef­i­cent se­quel.

The for­mer Cat­woman and fel­low new ad­di­tion Ed Skrein join the re­turn­ing An­gelina Jolie and Elle Fan­ning.
