UPDATE: The official Trailer for The Goldfinger is here! The film is set for release on December 30th.
18 years later after the release of Infernal Affairs 3, superstars Andy Lau (Shock Wave 2) and Tony Leung (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings) are back in the upcoming Hong Kong crime thriller, The Goldfinger aka Once Upon A Time in Hong Kong.
Sharing the same title as director Wong Jing’s latest film about Hong Kong police corruption in the 1970’s, the Felix Chong-directed film is based on the story of Carrian Group, a rising Hong Kong corporation in which a corruption scandal has led to its demise in 1983.
In the first-look pictures posted by Emperor Motion Pictures Facebook page, Lau can be seen pictured alongside co-star Tony Leung and crewmembers such as director Felix Chong (Project Gutenberg).
The photos show Lau and Leung on-set as Lau is portrayed as a gray-haired ICAC (Independent Commision Against Corruption) Investigator and Leung plays a role based on George Tan, founder of Carrian Group.
With a budget of HK $350 million (US $45 million), the film also stars Simon Yam (Chasing the Dragon 2: Wild Wild Bunch), Charlene Choi (Fatal Visit), Alex Fong (Overheard 3), Chin Ka-Lok (Golden Job) and Philip Keung (Shock Wave 2).
The film’s release date has not yet been announced but filming has officially wrapped.
