Looks like Chow Yun-Fat and Wong Jing aren’t the only ones remaking their classic TVB series into a movie (see The Bund). There’s a rumor going around that Louis Koo (SPL II, Wild City) is remaking his highly-rated 2001 series, A Step into the Past.
The plot almost sounds like the polar opposite of Donnie Yen’s Iceman 3D. In the original series, Louis Koo plays modern day cop who volunteers to take part in a time travel experiment that will have him transported to the coronation of the Qin Emperor three thousand years ago – but something goes wrong and he’s transported to the violent Warring States Period intead.
According to HKTop10, there’s also some talk about remaking A Step into the Past into an all-new TVB series as well, with Law Chung Him (The Monkey King) in Koo’s role.
If any of these remakes come to fruition, we’ll be the first to let you know. Until then, check out the DVD trailer from the 2001’s A Step into the Past, which hints science fiction, martial arts action and a bit of romance.
