Hong Kong sales and production company Distribution Workshop has picked up international rights to Ringo Lam’s Wild City and Lo Chi-leung’s The Vanished Murderer ahead of Filmart, which takes place in the city later this month.
Wild City takes a look at Hong Kong’s seedy underbelly and features Louis Koo, Shawn Yue, Tong Liya, Simon Yam, Yuen Qiu and Chang Hsiao-Chuan.
The Vanished Murderer, by Hong Kong writer-director Lo, stars Lau Ching-wan, Gordon Lam, Li Xiaolu and Jiang Yiyan. It is a thriller set in the 1930s in northern China.
The Hong Kong International Film and TV Market (Filmart) is set to run from March 23-26 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center.
