Cheang Pou-soi is a filmmaker who seems to try on a new genre with each movie he makes, from the nihilistic underground fighting of Dog Bite Dog to the romantic drama-meets crime story Love Battlefield. His latest effort, produced by Johnnie To, is an action-packed look at the Hong Kong police’s Invisible Squad – an elite vehicular unit tasked with stopping illegal street racers and other dangerous drivers.
Sean Yue (Infernal Affairs II) co-stars alongside Hong Kong veteran Anthony Wong in a film that is equal parts Fast and Furious flick and sleek Michael Mann crime picture. With a premise this action-packed, it’s no surprise that a Western company has jumped at the chance to distribute Motorway.
Hot off the heels of the film’s premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, Lionsgate has acquired exclusive distribution rights to Motorway in North America.
