Yang Family Generals aka 14 Amazons

Postby pollypolly » Mon Dec 06, 2010 7:51 pm

Is anyone anticipating the new 14 Amazons remake [B]Yang Family Generals[/B]?

I'm normally against remakes and am not that much of a fan of new wave but this one has a dream cast, directed by Frankie Chan and is produced by Jackie Chan.

Cast includes Cecilia Cheung, Simon Yam, Yukari Oshima and Cheng Pei Pei.

Looks interesting.

I recently watched a mainland TV series about the Yang family leading up to the incident at the start of 8 Diagram Pole fighter where most of them got killed. Quite enjoyable but it focused as much on the romance / drama side of the young Yangs as it did on anything else.

It'll give me an excuse to dust off my copy of 14 Amazons for a recap if nothing else!

Yes, to be honest the main draw for this remake for me is Oshima. It will be really interesting to see her in a polished production such as this compared to the shot-on-video dross that she's been churning out recently.
