Lupine star Omar Sy to lead John Woo’s remake of The Killer for Peacock

Lupine star Omar Sy will star in a new Peacock-exclusive series based on John Woo’s 1989 crime drama The Killer. The original film starred Chow Yun-fat as assassin Ah Jong, who accidentally damages popular singer Jennie’s (Sally Yeh) eyes during a shootout. Ready to leave the world of assassination behind, Jong reluctantly accepts the offer to take one last hit to raise enough money for surgery to save Jennie’s sight.

Woo will direct the new series, which is slated for release in 2023. The script was penned by writing duo Matthew Stuecken and Josh Campbell (10 Cloverfield Lane, Covenant, Knights of the Zodiac), Eran Creevy (Welcome to the Punch, Collide, Shifty) and Brian Helgeland (LA Confidential, Legend, Spenser Confidential).
