Apparently on the shelf for a while, The Weinstein Company will release Shanghai at the end of the month in a very limited theatrical run, and then probably VOD soon after. John Cusack stars as an American spy in 1941 Shanghai, investigating the death of his friend (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and investigates a local crime boss (Chow Yun Fat) and things eventually seem to lead to details about Pearl Harbor. Gong Li and Ken Watanabe co-star and it looks like a decent thriller. It’s fun to see Chow Yun Fat as a bad ass crime boss and John Cusack seems like he’s not channeling Nicolas Cage this time. The movie is out on August 21st and you can check out the trailer below.
