After recent reports that Tony Leung Chiu-Wai will be working with fellow Hong Kong star Simon Yam for the first time in 30 years on a ‘top-secret movie’, Hong Kong media have revealed more details about the movie, including the name of the film, Goldfinger, and the news that Andy Lau will also be appearing on the film.
The pairing of Leung and Lau is especially exciting for fans of Hong Kong films, as the two stars last worked together on the Infernal Affairs trilogy, which ended 18 years ago with Infernal Affairs 3. This will also be Leung’s first Hong Kong movie in three years. The 58-year-old actor recently wrapped filming on Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings.
Written and directed by Felix Chong (Project Gutenberg), Goldfinger revolves around fictional Hong Kong company called Jiali Group, led by chairman Cheng Yiyan, which is rocked by allegations of corruption. It is based on a true story of a corruption scandal in the 1980s involving a Hong Kong conglomerate called the Carrian Group.
Besides Leung, Lau and Yam, the cast also includes Philip Keung (Shock Wave 2), Alex Fong Chung-sun (Overheard 3), Charlene Choi, Chin Ka-lok and Carlos Chan.
