Actor Chow Yun-Fat has withdrawn from a John Woo-directed film.
Yun-Fat recently withdrew from Red Cliff, an historical Chinese epic, soon after shooting began. Now rumors are circulating that Yun-Fat has forgotten his roots, as he starred in Woo’s 1986 film A Better Tomorrow.
The reason Chow is giving for dropping the film like a hot potato, is that he only just last week received the script & has not had the time to prepare for the role. The film’s producers are, however, saying that’s a big lie & that Yun-Fat was being difficult to work with as he was making unreasonable demands.
I guess we’ll just have to wait & see what happens to ole Red Cliff now…..
