Lupin star Omar Sy is set to lead a new Peacock exclusive series based on John Woo's 1989 crime drama The Killer. The original movie starred Chow Yun-fat as assassin Ah Jong who accidentally damages the eyes of popular singer Jennie (Sally Yeh) during a shootout.

Ready to leave the killing world behind, Jong reluctantly accepts the offer to do one last hit in order to raise enough money for Jennie's sight-saving surgery.

Woo will direct the new series, which is slated for a 2023 release. The screenplay was penned by writing duo Matthew Stuecken and Josh Campbell (10 Cloverfield Lane, Covenant, Knights of the Zodiac), Eran Creevy (Welcome to the Punch, Collide, Shifty), and Brian Helgeland (L.A.

Confidential, Legend, Spenser Confidential). The Killer earned several nominations at the 9th annual Hong King Film Awards, with Woo winning Best Director.
