After months in Australia filming Marvel’s “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”, it was reported that Tony Leung Chiu Wai has returned to Hong Kong to begin filming a new movie with Emperor Motion Pictures (EMP) alongside Simon Yam.

As reported on On CC, sources claimed that the upcoming film will be EMP’s “secret weapon” to combat the ice age currently plaguing the Hong Kong film industry, and that the company is investing more than HKD 200 million for the project that will boast a star-studded cast.

Although not much information has been released about the project, it is said that the movie will be an adaptation of a real-life criminal event that happened in the 1970s.

The project will mark Tony and Simon’s first project together after many years, after they previously collaborated in TVB’s 1985 series, “Police Cadet ’85” and 1990 movie, “Bullet in the Head”.

On the other hand, other sources are also claiming that Andy Lau will be joining the movie as well, aside from singer-actress Charlene Choi – the latter who will be working with Tony for the first time ever.
