The 2021 Chinese movie Assassin in Red (刺杀小说家), also known as A Writer's Journey, will play in Pittsburgh from February 12. A brief overview, from a Variety preview last year:
“Assassin in Red,” which is executive produced by Ning Hao and backed by CMC Pictures, tells the story of a father who is tasked with killing a novelist in order to save his daughter who went missing six years ago. It turns out that the man’s writing creates a fantastical world that ends up influencing the father’s quest. The film stars Lei Jiayin (“The Longest Day in Chang’an”), Yang Mi (“Tiny Times”), and Dong Zijian (“Mountains May Depart”).
It plays locally at the AMC Loews Waterfront and the Cinemark in Robinson, and tickets are available online.
