Rare John Woo Swordplay from 1981

Postby falkor » Tue Oct 02, 2012 10:30 am

Toby Russell was telling me that John Woo directed a Taiwanese swordplay film (circa 1981), which is now considered rare/lost (or incomplete?)

Has anyone heard about this before? Have you seen it listed in any Woo filmographies?

It is very possible, I don't need to talk again about "Enter Another Dragon" and "Salt,Pepper & Soy Sauce"... I guess that John Woo may went to Taiwan and began with directing that film and because lack of money or something he quit. Again it could be a hoax as we know that in past few years we have been looking for movies that we already have (ex. Twist with CWM). And of course there is possibility that it is rare/unseen Joh Woo flick. Once again only way is to ask him personaly, so give me several days and i'll seek some info from him personaly.

It's definitely not a hoax because Toby has evidence in the form of a newspaper article from Taiwan. When shown to John Woo, his only reply was "Don't ask about that!"
