Director Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity) has signed on to direct a drama based on the life of Morris Abraham “Two Gun” Cohen. Cohen was a World War I veteran who move to China in 1922 and trained the army of Sun Yat-sen, a revolutionary who played an instrumental role in throwing over China’s last imperial dynasty. Cohen taught Sun’s army boxing and shooting, which was impressive considering that Cohen didn’t speak Chinese. He then went on to become Sun’s main bodyguards and later went on to fight for China against Japanese invaders in the 1930s.
