Tarantino to direct martial arts remake

QuentinTarantino.jpgQuentin Tarantino has been keeping secrets from us, according to a press release from the Weinstein's he has a little film up his sleeve called Come Drink With Me which is a remake of a Hong Kong martial arts film.

The original Da zui xia, tells the story of a group of bandits who kidnap the Governor's son and demand an exchange for their imprisoned leader. The brother's sister is a formidable in martial arts and sets out to free him, she fights through overwhelming odds but is hit by a poison dart and left to die.

A beggar finds her, takes her in and nurses her back to health, except he's not a beggar, he's a kung-fu master and they team up to save her brother.

The news comes from a one liner in a Weinstein Company press release through The Hollywood Reporter.

Sounds great stuff, although I'm not sure about Quentin Tarantino taking it on, I would love to see an Eastern director helm it in Hollywood and see what they can come through with. However we're getting Tarantino so that does mean bags and bags of style.



I've never seen it, but I've always been under the impression that Come Drink With Me was one of the legendary wu xia films. If Tarantino screws this up, this could be the end of him.
