Bangkok Dangerous gets Hollywood treatment

According to this news report, Nicolas Cage will star in the Hollywood remake of the Pang Bros' Bangkok Dangerous. Umm, but the protagonist won't be a mute assassin. It'll be a talking Nicolas Cage.

Oxide and Danny Pang will direct the remake and are to start shooting in Bangkok in August, the AP report says, citing the South China Morning Post.

The brothers will inject new elements into the remake and may also cast Thai, South Korean and Hong Kong actors, Oxide Pang was quoted as saying at the Cannes Film Festival.

Wonder where this fits in with the other projects mentioned? Ah, who knows?

Twitch, meanwhile, has glimpses at solo projects, Danny Pang's Diary and Oxide's Forest of Death.
