Blackhat aka Cyber is Mann’s first feature since lukewarmly received Public Enemies back in 2009. The film co-stars Viola Davis, Tang Wei, William Mapother, and Wang Leehom and it’s written by Morgan Davis Foehl and Mann.

Blackhat opens January 16, 2015.

Welcome back Michael Mann!This looks like a good movie.

Set within the world of global cybercrime, Legendary’s Blackhat follows a furloughed convict and his American and Chinese partners as they hunt a high-level cybercrime network from Chicago to Los Angeles to Hong Kong to Jakarta.
