Hong Kong's 852 Films producing pic
LONDON — Fortissimo Films has boarded Hong Kong helmer Pang Ho-cheung’s slasher pic “Dream Home.”Start-up shingle 852 Films is producing the pic, for which Fortissimo is handling worldwide sales, excluding Hong Kong. “Dream Home,” which is in post-production, stars Josie Ho (“Exiled”) and Anthony Wong (“Infernal Affairs”), Eason Chan, Michelle Ye Suen, Lawrence Chou, Derek Tsang, Juno Mak, Sin Lap Man, Wong Ching and Lo Hoi Pang. Pic tells the story of a young woman, played by Ho, who goes to extreme measures when she can no longer afford her dream home. “We’re hoping with ‘Dream Home’ to have a repeat of the success we previously enjoyed in the genre zone with the ‘Eye’ films,” commented Fortissimo co-chairman Michael J. Werner. 852 Films was launched earlier this year by Hong Kong-based producers and financiers Conroy Chan, Josie Ho and Andrew Ooi. Shingle is developing a slate of five projects.
