Time to Kill is the working title of the Bangkok Dangerous remake, starring Nicolas Cage. It will still have a deaf-mute character, Oxide Pang says in the International Herald Tribune, though this time it will be the gunman's Thai girlfriend, who will be played by an as-yet-unamed, "well known" Asian actress.
"We'd like to keep [the gunman] the same, but we understand that from a marketing purpose Nic needs to have some lines," Pang says. "So what we're going to do is transform his girlfriend into a deaf-mute. By switching the roles, the drama of communication between two people will remain the same."
Re-cycle, meanwhile, has opened in Hong Kong and Singapore. Their latest horror film, which reunites them with The Eye's Angelica Lee (okay, she's also Oxide's girlfriend), is going to straight to video, along with their solo efforts, Oxide's Diary and Danny's Forest of Death, having been picked up in the UK by Image. So reported Kaiju Shakedown awhile back.
