Chinese Films has the scoop on a new Hong Kong action picture with an impressive pedigree, called Motorway. The project has culled together talent from the Hong Kong, Mainland, and Taiwan film industries. In the film, produced by the legendary Johnnie To, Anthony Wong (Hard Boiled) and Shawn Yue (Infernal Affairs II) play two traffic cops who go after speeding bad guys in their disguised police car.
Director Pou-Soi Cheang promises that the car chase sequences will thrill audiences. “More than that,” he added, “[Motorway] also includes the most classic elements of Hong Kong gangster films.” The rest of the cast includes Michelle Ye, Ka Tung Lam, Barbie Hsu, and Guo Xiaodong.
Expect Motorway to rev into Mainland and Hong Kong theaters this summer.
