The upcoming film, starring Hong Kong star Andy Lau and French actor Jean Reno, is a story centred on an overseas treasure hunt, according to Variety.

The project was first announced at the HK FILMART back in March under the Flagship Entertainment banner, with mainland actor Feng Shaofeng originally cast to play the lead.

The project also stars Fung’s rumoured girlfriend, Shu Qi.

Previously, Fung was asked if his good friend actor Daniel Wu would also be appearing in the movie, but the filmmaker was quick to deny it, saying that Wu — who most recently starred in Warcraft — has a very packed schedule.

According to the Czech State Cinematography Fund, the production will be spending around US$8.2 million (RM33.1 million) in the country.

Other movies to be released under Flagship include Peter Chan’s Murder of the Husband, and a Chinese remake of Miss Congeniality. — CinemaOnline
