Celluloid picks up world rights to H.K. pic
French sales house Celluloid Dreams has picked up world sales rights to “Triangle” a genre pic involving three of Hong Kong’s best known directors.
Film’s title stems from the unusual way in which Tshi Hark, Ringo Lam an Johnnie To will work in relay to develop the narrative and impose their own styles.
Pic being financed by Milkyway Image (“Election”) with production through Milkyway and Tsui Hark’s Film Workshop is already lensing. Cast includes Louis Koo (“Election 1 & 2”), Simon Yam (“Exiled”), Sun Honglei (“Seven Swords”), and Kelly Lin (“Fulltime Killer, “After This Our Exile”).
“I started my directing career working with Tsui and Ringo more than 20 years ago and it’s been a long time in waiting for a unique project to bring us together,” said To.
Celluloid, which has long had an interest in Asian cinema, has recently begun to increase its genre quotient and established Celluloid Nightmares. It recently picked up ‘Inside,” a French horror starring Beatrice Dalle and Alysson Paradis.
