Hyde Park boards Kirk Wong’s ‘Six’

OK101, Fantawild, Asia Ent. Media, National Film Capital co-produce

BEIJING — Singapore and Hollywood-based Hyde Park Intl. will exec produce and handle worldwide sales, excluding China, on helmer Kirk Wong’s manga-inspired actioner “Six.”

Pic will be co-produced with China’s OK101, Fantawild Film Industry Investment, Asia Entertainment Media and National Film Capital.

Hyde Park topper Ashok Amritraj said the pic would bring “Asian mysticism to Western commercial cinema.”

Pic was written by Li Feng, the scribe on Zhang Yimou’s “Hero,” Erik Martinez and Doug Brode.

Story follows a scientist who creates five hybrids by fusing human and animal genes, giving them animal-like capabilities that allow them to fight fiercely.

Hong Kong’s Wong is an Asian veteran whose helming credits include “Crime Story” with Jackie Chan and “The Big Hit” with Mark Wahlberg.

“Six” starts lensing on location in China and Louisiana in November. Casting is in progress, with Hollywood and Asian stars in the running.

Among Hyde Park’s recent production and distribution credits are “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance 3D,” “The Double,” “Blue Valentine,” “Bernie” and “Machete.”
