Tony Leung Chiu-Wai and Andy Lau will team up in a new major action movie titled Goldfinger, local reports said Friday.
The two beloved Hong Kong-born A-listers haven’t worked together since the end of the Infernal Affairs trilogy 18 years ago.
The reunion will be written and directed by Felix Chong, the screenwriter for that series. It is backed by Emperor Motion Pictures and mainland Chinese partners, with a reported budget of around $30.8 million (RMB200 million).
Chong found success in mainland China in 2018 with his counterfeiting thriller Project Gutenberg, which he wrote and directed. Starring Chow Yun-Fat, Aaron Kwok and Zhang Jingchu, it grossed $183 million in China and $4.3 million in Hong Kong, going on to win best film, best script, best director and four other prizes from 17 nominations at the 2019 Hong Kong Film Awards.
