Remake of Coen Brothers “Blood Simple”

Zhang Yimou - Remake of Coen Brothers “Blood Simple”

Acclaimed Chinese director Zhang Yimou (House of Flying Daggers, Curse of the Golden Flower) has stuck up a deal with Sony Pictures Classics to remake the Coen Brothers first film “Blood Simple”.

About Zhang’s vision for the film (From Sony):  Zhang’s film will be a thriller-comedy remake of Joel & Ethan Coen’s Blood Simple, set in a Chinese noodle shop in a sand dune-specked desert, rather than a bar in an unnamed Texas town. The owner of the noodle shop’s seemingly simple plan to murder his adulterous wife and her lover quickly spins out of control after the introduction of a gun into the lives of characters more accustomed to knives and swords.
