Brother expand slate with Asian actioners

The Weinstein Co. Saturday expanded its already burgeoning slate of Asian action titles by snapping up a package of six movies from Hong Kong’s Mei Ah Entertainment.

List is headed by “PTU,” helmed by Johnnie To in 2003, and Daniel Lee’s Sammo Hung-starrer “Dragon Squad.” Package also included four library titles: Ringo Lam-starrer “Full Alert,” an earlier Hung-starrer “Dragon From Russia,” “Victim” and “Skinny Tiger and Fatty Dragon.”

TWC has charged headlong into the Asian action scene since bringing on board on-time stuntman and martial arts guru Bey Logan as its Hong Kong based head of Asian acquisitions and co-productions.
