FilMart: Wanda, Warner on Board Ablaze Image’s ‘Village That Forgets’

Independent Taipei-based sales agency, Ablaze Image is handling “The Village That Forgets,” a Taiwanese martial arts comedy that includes China’s Wanda Pictures and Warner Bros. (F.E), the Taiwanese unit of Warner, among its investors.

Albaze will fire up international sales on the picture at this week’s FilMart in Hong Kong. It is also unveiling “Foret Debussy” a dark drama starring Gwei Lun-mei.

“Village” is directed by successful Chen Yu-Hsun (“Zone Pro Site: The Movable Feast,” “Tropical Fish”) and is the story of a mysterious event happening in a rural village by the end of the Qing Dynasty.

The film stars Shu Qi (“The Assassin,” “Mojin: The Lost Legend”), Wang Qianyuan (“Saving Mr. Wu”), Hong Kong’s Eric Tsang (“Monster Hunt,” “From Vegas to Macau II”), Chang Hsiao-Chuan, Tony Yang and Lin Mei-Hsiu. It also reunites producers Lee Lieh (“Meeting Dr. Sun”) and Yeh Jufeng (“Our Times”), who previously delivered hit “Zone Pro Site.”

“Village” has a budget of $9 million, which is co-financed by seven investors including its production company One Production Film Co. The film is scheduled to be released during Chinese New Year in 2017.

“Debussy” is the first feature of Kuo Cheng-Chui and is produced by Aileen Li (“When A Wolf Falls In Love With A Sheep”) and Steven Tu (“The Forth Portrait”), through Filmagic Pictures Co. and You Love Agent & PR Executive.

As well as “Black Coal, Thin Ice,” star Gwei, “Debussy” also stars Lu Yi-Ching (“Stray Dogs,” “The Wayward Cloud”.) The story sees a mother and daughter hide themselves deep in a forest, in an attempt to escape the troubles of urban civilization. But it turns out that they cannot escape themselves.
