Targeted for release next summer, Hong Kong-lensed pic will reunite Chan with director Benny Chan for the first time since they collaborated on “Who Am I?” in 1998.
Yeung’s Emperor Multimedia Group will handle sales in Asia, including Japan. Pic will be produced by JCE’s Willie Chan and Solon So. Cast includes Nicholas Tse, Daniel Wu, Charlene Choi and Charlie Yeung.
