Amazing Tales: Three Guns Trailer aka Zhang Yimou’s Blood Simple Remake

A trailer for Zhang Yimou’s “Amazing Tales: Three Guns” has popped up online, and it looks … interesting. Adapted by Jianquan Shi and Jing Shang, the Chinese remake of the Brothers Coens’ “Blood Simple” transplants the story into a period film set in a Chinese noodle shop, where the owner schemes to murder his adulterous wife and her lover, but things go awry, as they invariably always do in these type of situations.

The comedy-crime thriller stars Honglei Sun, Dahong Ni, Ni Yan, Xiao Shen-Yang, Xiaojuan Wang, and is directed by Zhang Yimou of “The Curse of the Golden Flower” and “The House of Flying Daggers” fame. Plus, he also did some commie stuff recently.
