FBA: An Inaccurate Memoir review
Actor Huang Xiaoming shines in a quirky, blackly comic tale of bandit heroes during WW2.

John Woo Has Cancer?
According to authoritative sources, the reason John Woo has postponed the filming of "Love and Let Love" (formerly "Pacific Steamer"), starring Chang Chen, Zhang Ziyi and Song Hye-Kyo, is that while preparing for production in April the director was hospitalized for laryngeal cancer in the US. According to previous rumours, Woo had surgery for a heart ailment or pancreatic cancer. Producer Terence Chang did not return calls from reporters but according to a friend Woo did not have heart problems. Woo is currently recuperating in the US and he is optimistic that Woo will begin working again by the end of the year. Speaking of the remake of "The Killer", to be directed by Lee Jae-Han (John H. Lee), Chang said that Nicolas Cage and James Franco are being considered but not yet confirmed.(Sina)

Production is now underway in Thailand on Cooktales, an English-language drama about food and family set in Singapore.
The much-delayed film is directed by South Korea's Gina Kim and stars Asian superstar Michelle Yeoh.
