Lupin's next lead movie role is reprised in the remake of the action classic ...

Omar Sy, who plays Lupin, has found his next lead movie role in John Woo's remake of his action film The Killer.

The first 1989 film, directed and directed by Woo, follows disillusioned assassin Ah Jong (Chow Yun-fat), who, after accidentally blinding nightclub singer Jennie (Sally Yeh) on his most recent job, decides to take one last hit to pay for her sight-restoring operation.

According to Deadline, Woo will return to direct the remake of the script penned by Matthew Stuecken, Josh Campbell (10 Cloverfield Lane), Eran Creevy (Collide) and Brian Helgeland (42, Legend).

The plot of the reimagining has yet to be revealed, but the film is expected to premiere on Peacock in 2023.

Lupin, a French mystery series on Netflix, follows Sy's character Assane as he sets out to venge his father for an injustice done by a wealthy family.

Although Netflix did spoil Lupin fans by releasing Part 2 in June 2021, just six months after Part 1 was released on the platform, Part 3 is yet to be released.

The Takedown, a sequel to 2012's On the Other Side of the Tracks, was released earlier this year.

In the Netflix film, Sy and Laurent Lafitte play a pair of mismatched cops who are teamed to investigate a big case.

Justin Lin will take over as director of Fast X in May, but if the critical response for The Takedown is any indication, fans should not hold their breath for the next installment.

Seasons 1 and 2 of Lupin are now available on Netflix.
