This one's been delayed for a while, presumably because of some publicity concerns surrounding Lee Byung-hun's private life. Hopefully that's the only reason this has been delayed because this sounds like a pretty epic period film with a strong cast. That said, the veteran director is not know for action and the buzz on this has faded.
