Byron Mann, Eugenia Yuan Add Flavor to ‘Jasmine’

Hong Kong/U.S.-produced psychological thriller "Jasmine" launched by Lon Haber.

Lon Haber & Co is launching Hong Kong/U.S.-produced psychological thriller “Jasmine.”

The Hong Kong-set, English-language film, now in post-production, stars Byron Mann (“Catwoman”), Jason Tobin, Eugenia Yuan (“Memoirs of a Geisha”), Grace Huang (“The Man With the Iron Fists”) and Sarah Lian, and is the directorial debut of Dax Phelan.

The story features a man struggling to overcome his wife’s unsolved murder who takes matters into his own hands when the mystery surrounding her killing becomes murkier. The original story was conceived by Phelan and Tobin, with the screenplay written by Phelan.

Phelan, Tobin and Hollywood producer Stratton Leopold (“Mission: Impossible III,” “The Sum of All Fears”) produce. Company credits are with Hong Kong’s Shanghai Street Films and RockGinger and the U.S.’s Ripped Pictures.

Completion is set for late spring this year.

Lon Haber & Co is run by marketing executive and entrepreneur Lon Haber, who works closely with Arclight and Easternlight Films.

“I’ve always wanted to tell a deceptively complex story that unfolds from one scene to the next and which rewards first-time audiences and repeat viewers alike,” said Phelan.

Phelan is also producer on the recent “She’s Lost Control” by Anja Marquardt, which appeared in SXSW and the Berlin Forum. He was also an executive on Mace Neufeld-produced “The General’s Daughter” and “The Sum of All Fears.”
