Johnnie To’s new movie has been accused of plagiarism as its recently released poster looked similar to a David Cronenberg movie poster.

As reported on Mingpao News, the director, who recently released the poster of his new movie, “The Old Guy”, was said to have copied the poster of the 2007 British-Canadian-American crime thriller, “Eastern Promises”.

The two posters feature the same tattooed pair of hands against a black background, with the difference being the hands in Johnnie To’s new poster are holding a gun.
However, the production studio recently addressed the allegations, saying that it was just a concept poster.
Johnnie’s representative explained that the movie is still in its production stage, and no official poster has been released by the studio just yet.
