If Song Hae-Seong’s 2010 Korean remake of A Better Tomorrow didn’t quite do it for you, then get ready for another variation of John Woo’s 1986 seminal gangster classic. Ding Sheng – the acclaimed director of Little Big Soldier, Police Story 2013, Railroad Tigers, and Saving Mr. Wu – is delivering A Better Tomorrow 2018 (aka A Better Tomorrow 4) to theaters on January 18, 2018 (via AFS).
According to Variety, Sheng’s film traces the journey of a former smuggler who attempts to start his life anew after his release from prison and repair his relationship with his estranged brother. But that is not counting on gangland betrayal, a botched drug deal and a devastating family tragedy.
A Better Tomorrow 2018 stars Darren Wang (Railroad Tigers), Ma Tianyu (Surprise) and Wang Kai (Railroad Tigers), who will be playing Mark “Gor” Lee (the character made famous by Chow Yun-fat in the original). Also along for the ride are Lam Suet (Three), Wu Yue (Police Story 2013) and Yu Ailei (Black Coal, Thin Ice).
