Alan Delon is involved, leading me to believe this is a remake of Melville's fantastic Le Cercle Rouge .

If this is so...

why must this be done?

edit: sorry forgot to add this earlier...

Just did a quick google and got the word that it's Johnny To directing, Orlando Bloom to star, and yeah, it's a remake of the Melville film.

As to why anyone would do such a thing, let me suggest: $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

And what audience do they expect will give them the $$$?

Firstly, it has been proven in the past that Orlando Bland cannot carry a movie on his own. See Ridley Scott's Kingdom Of Heaven (or rather do what everybody else did and DON'T) if you need an example.

Secondly, Melville's original isn't exactly a household name in the states. They're sending this out to the masses without doing their research.

Finally, film enthusiast who know the original will (or at least SHOULD) avoid this like the plague.


In conclusion I hope this fails very very very badly.
