INFERNAL AFFAIRS - supposedly it was going to be brad pitt and matt damien.
Either way, I wouldn't watch any of the American versions because I feel the flavor would just be lost through the process of re-making it. Even the movie version of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon lost alot of meaning, it was a remake of a soap series.
"My Sassy Girl" - is a pretty cool movie, interesting twist just like alot of the korean movies.
I don't know what you don't like about it, but I actually found the trilogy pretty darn awesome, well the third one wasn't all that great, but the 2nd one was my favorite. Then again, I like all mafia movies. From Godfather, to Young and Dangerous all 12 of them (that includes the background stories of each characters.)Stormtrooper said:noooooooo not Infernal Affairs.. everyone realized what a crappy trilogy it was a couple months after its 3 incredibly-overhyped releases. not sure how Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock will do trying to recapture the feeling behind My Sassy Girl; at its heart, the movie is still about teenage/20-year old insecurities..
I think in general all the chinese actors first were music artist first. A chinese celeb requirement seems to must have both musical and acting talent.Stormtrooper said:BTW I'm not sure if most people are familiar with this, but in Chinese/HK cinema, a lot of times popular actors were chosen for the cast of a certain movie simply because of their status as a musical pop icon. For example, in Infernal Affairs, Kelly Chen, Leon Lai, and Edison Chen were all music stars before their entrance onto the big screen- the fact that there were so many musical celebrities on the Infernal Affairs cast is part of what made it so big
