Derek Yee to produce the period feature

Hong Kong’s Emperor Motion Pictures and China’s Le Vision Pictures are teaming on a period murder-mystery feature directed by Lo Chi-leung and produced by Derek Yee.

The companies announced the project Thursday at the American Film Market. Distribution in China will be overseen by Le Vision Pictures, and EMP will handle sales and distribution for the rest of the world.

The still untitled production, which has been in pre-production near Shanghai, will star Nicholas Tse, Lau Ching-wan and Yang Me. Principal photography will begin this month for a summer release.

Lo and Yee worked together on ”Viva Erotica” (1996), ”Double Tap” (2000) and ”Inner Senses” (2002).
