Flying Tigers - John Woo's New Film in 2 Versions

WWII Story as 2 Parts in Cinemas or 6 Parts on TV

The last conventional film of Chinese director John Woo was Paycheck starring Ben Affleck. After that, Red Cliff was an ambitious Chinese epic and the most expensive movie ever made in that country. It was shown in Chinese cinemas in 2 parts and both of them had a runtime of 2 hours. In the Western territories, the film was recut to 50% of its original duration and the result was rather confusing (see our comparison).

And that should not be repeated with Woo's next big project. Nobody wants to see a mutilated torso of Flying Tigers, a film about the first American voluntary flight division in China during WWII.

While Flying Tigers will be shown in cinemas as two films (at least in China and possibly other Asian countries, too), the West won't get a theatrical run in any form. Instead, these territories will get a TV mini series in 6 parts.

Production will begin in 2014, so a result can be expected in 2 years at the earliest.
