Zhang Yimou directed Hero and House of Flying Daggers, and his latest project is a remake of the Coen Brothers’ Blood Simple called A Woman, A Gun, and A Noodle Shop.  The setting is a Chinese noodle shop in the desert, rather than a bar in Texas like the original, hence the title.  It opens September 3rd, and supposedly the Coens loved it.  The trailer doesn’t tell us a whole lot about it, but it sure looks pretty.  It also stars this guy, who I assume is the Chinese Steve Buscemi:

Hey, get that shirtless dude away from my noodle dough.
