There has been a lot of interest in a reboot with everyone from John Woo to Aaron and Adam Nee attached to direct. Sadly, every attempt has fizzled out for one reason or another. But that’s where Travis Knight (“Kubo and the Two Strings”) comes in. According to multiple sources, Knight is in final negotiations to direct. This is not a done…
