And in record time we have a trailer for the House of Flying Daggers director's take on the Coen Brother's classic. It seems like something may have been lost in translation. Looks cuckoo-bananas to us Americans but this is business as usual for Asian audiences. To make matters far crazier, Yahoo also reports that this version will include 100% more rap than the original. They are reporting that Yimou himself has written a rap theme for the film and that he recently performed it on Chinese state television. So, an accomplished filmmaker has diverted from his career path to pursue rap at the risk of embarassing himself. Tread carefully Zhang Yimou. You don't want Joaquin Pheonix getting in your ass.
