What’s that noise?! Oh, that’s just the sound of me losing my mind with excitement!

Not only is Universal remaking John Woo‘s classic 1989 crime drama, The Killer, but they’ve tapped Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o for the starring role! [squeals]

According to Deadline, Lupita is in negotiations to play the role of an assassin who puts her own life on the line to save a woman whom she accidentally blinded in her last hit.

In the original film, the role was played by the incomparable Chow Yun-Fat.

John Woo has signed on to direct the remake and he’s a beast when it comes to gun-clapping action films.

I watched The Killer many years ago and it is one of my most fave films next to Scarface.

Here’s the trailer:
