Asian ‘Sex’ film takes 3-D route

Shiu to produce sequel to 1991 film 'Zen'

A local producer is setting up what he claims is the first 3-D erotic movie.

Stephen Shiu Jr., chairman of One Dollar Prods., said his shingle will make “3D Sex and Zen,” a sequel to 1991’s “Sex and Zen” produced by his father, Stephen Siu Yeuk-yen. According to newspaper reports, the pic will be made on a budget of HK$30 million ($3.9 million) with 3-D effects provided by post-production outfit Menfond Electronic Art.

Lensing will begin in April and is skedded for delivery in December.

Shiu believes 3-D is the best way to beat movie piracy and boost the Hong Kong film industry, which is treading water.

The original “Sex and Zen” was based loosely on 17th century Chinese literary classic “The Carnal Prayer Mat.” The new take is a tale of how excess can lead to tragedy.

Shiu’s pic may be a tough sell in mainland China, which recently announced a campaign to stamp out “vulgarity” in the media and has shut down dozens of websites.
