One of the things I enjoyed most from my entire time at Ain't It Cool News was when we reached story #10,000 and I decided to do something special. I wrote a piece about what was at that point my most anticipated potential project, a collaboration between the Wachowskis and John Milius, King Conan: Crown Of Iron, a sequel to what I still consider one of the best films Arnold Schwarzenegger ever made. That was still before Schwarzenegger disappeared into political office for a while, and well before his comeback. So far, I've enjoyed some of the original films he's done since his return like The Last Stand and Sabotage, but I can't say I'm enjoying his sequel work. I thought Terminator Genisys was genuinely dire, and I don't like any of the Expendables movies. I hate the idea of Triplets, which Josh Gad is writing and which sounds like it's still in development. »

Director: Kim Jee-woon
Kim Jee-woon returns to South Korea following his 2013 Arnold Schwarzeneggar English language debut The Last Stand. He reunites with his The Good, the Bad, and the Weird star Song Kang-ho (one of the country’s most recognizable faces abroad) for the 1930s period drama Secret Agent, set during the Japanese colonial era. Notable, it’s the first South Korean feature to be financed by Warner Bros. (the second Us studio to do so after Twentieth Century Fox). We can expect a visually extravagant and potentially violent venture from the provocative director, best known for native genre items like I Saw the Devil (tipped for a Us remake) and A Tale of Two Sisters.
