OK OK so: A remake of The Three Musketeers set in present-day Hong Kong, where the Musketeers are Hong Kong police and the Cardinal and his guards are mainlanders who have come to usurp their authority. Chow Yun Fat as Athos Jackie Chan as Porthos Chris Tucker as Aramis Dilireba as d'Artagnan? The sad truth is I've been out of Chinese cinema for years, I still think of Zhang Ziyi as young.

Donnie Yen as Aramis?

I find him too serious! Donnie Yen as Richelieu?

Sammo Hung has to be in there somewhere.

Just watched Count of Monte Cristo again with my daughter. The old prisoner, the Abbe Faria, who teaches young Dantes reading, philosophy and the sword, is so exactly the archetypal Sammo Hung role that I’d be embarrassed to cast him for it.

For 3 Musketeers he'd be a perfect M. de Treville.

Yes! Oh man, the old patron. Now I want a martial arts remake of White Collar with Sammo Hung as the boss. Beat Takeshi against type as the con man.
