Fans of French and Hong Kong films can start celebrating. Twitchfilm.net have reported that Alain Delon will return to star in a new film by Johnnie To, director of Heroic Trio and Election among many others.
Delon has mostly been working in TV since his last major role in Half A Chance almost ten years ago.
The pairing of To and Delon seems particularly inspired and I will eagerly follow the progression of this film.
Delon, according to French media, has been struggling with loneliness and depression the past several years and has mostly been breeding racehorses. I hope that this film gives the man one more great starring role. Delon, at his greatest, is unmatchable and this film should provide his legendary career a fitting coda.
