Daily Variety is reporting today that Johnnie To’s latest film Exiled has been set up for a Hollywood remake. Media Asia brokered the deal with Samuel Hadida, who is attached as a producer. Hadida’s past work includes Domino and Silent Hill, and he is currently in post-production on Resident Evil: Extinction. As of now, it appears no other cast or crew for the remake have been announced.
Media Asia is undoubtedly still riding high from having set up the remake for Infernal Affairs, which resulted in Martin Scorsese’s The Departed and a host of Academy Awards. Last month Media Asia sold remake rights of Confessions of Pain to Warner Brothers.
