Manhunt is a remake of the 1976 Japanese classic action thriller which tells the story of a man who is accused of multiple crimes and trying desperately to clear his name.
The Manhunt remake, which obviously follows the same theme, is about a prosecutor, played by award-winning Chinese actor Zhang Hanyu, who is framed for robbery, rape and multiple murders and sets out on a difficult solo mission to clear his name. Japanese heartthrob actor and singer Masaharu Fukuyama plays the detective chasing Zhang’s character (Source: Variety). Ha Ji-Won and newcomer Qi Wei also star.
After years making Hollywood films and big budget Chinese epics, Hong Kong’s successful director, John Woo, the man behind action classics that made him a world famous, is finally making a return to the genre with Manhunt.
Manhunt will premier at the 74th Venice Film Festival, which runs on Aug. 30 to Sept. 9.
