"Tong Que Tai (銅雀台)" is "The Assassins" in North America

A few industry media have reported that "Tong Que Tai  (銅雀台)," a Chinese film directed by Zhao Lin-Shan (趙林山) and starring Chow Yun-Fat (周潤發), Crystal Liu (劉亦菲), Alec Su (蘇有朋), Hiroshi Tamaki (玉木宏)...and supposedly and hopefully Roy Cheung (張耀揚)...will be released in North America under the name of "The Assassins."

The rights for the territory have been secured by Well Go USA Entertainment, a distributor who in the past released Asian films including "Ip Man (葉問)," "Shaolin (新少林寺)," "1911," "The Stool Pigeon (綫人)," "Let the Bullet Fly (讓子彈飛)" and "Flash Point (導火線)" on DVD/Blu-Ray and/or in theatres across the USA and Canada.

Although Well Go USA is yet to issue an official press release, and the film's English title sounds rather generic, this is great news!
