HK FilMart: Ringo Lam Makes Comeback With ‘Wild City’

Ringo Lam, one of Hong Kong’s most celebrated directors, is now in post-production on “Wild City,” his first film in seven years.

The big-budget action movie is a Cantonese-noir, with bystanders caught up in a maelstrom of gangsters, greed and betrayal. The cast is headed by Louis Koo Tin-lok, Shawn Yue Man-lok, Tong Liya and Joseph Chang.

The film is co-produced by Hong Kong’s One Cool Film and mainland Chinese companies including Beijing East Light Film. Bravos Pictures will handle local distribution this summer, while international sales are overseen by Distribution Workshop.

Lam enjoyed huge success in the 1980s with Chow Yun-fat actioner “City on Fire” before transitioning to a Hollywood career that included Jean Claude van Damme starrers “Maximum Risk” and “Replicant.” He directed one of three elements in 2007’s “Triangle,” while his last Hong feature film was 2003 comedy “Looking for Mr. Perfect.”
