Hong Kong actioner stars Juan, Xiaoming
The $15 million pic will be produced by Chan under his We Pictures label, and features Asian heartthrobs Ethan Juan and Huang Xiaoming.
They will play members of an elite crime-fighting squad who are trained to use flying guillotines to protect the Emperor’s Court.
Production will be designed by Kenneth Mak, with costumes by Dora Ng.
Yuen Bun will choreograph the action scenes in the pic, which will start lensing in April for a target release at the end of the year.
