Similar to “3 Doors of Horrors”, James Lee’s currently untitled Fixi crime short films will also be produced under his production house, Doghouse73Pictures with three fairly-new local directors to direct each short.
According to the producer of “3 Doors of Horrors” 2015 Edward Lim, the shorts will be adapted from Fixi’s famous “KL Noir” series with directors Malek Hue, the director of photography for the first “3 Doors of Horrors”, Khai Bahar who directed “Cuak”, and We Jun, winner of FFM27’s Best Short Film.

Lim also stated that the project is currently in production and will probably be completed by early next year.
