Emperor wears producer crown on Stone's 'W'


Emperor Motion Pictures is joining U.S.-based QED International and U.K.-based Aramid Capital Partners in financing Oliver Stone's $30 million George W. Bush biopic "W."

The deal marks the first that time Hong Kong-based Emperor will back a major U.S. production.

Hong Kong socialite-turned-actress/producer Teresa Cheung and Emperor Entertainment Group CEO Albert Yeung join the picture as executive producers alongside Jon Kilik, QED co-founders Elliot Ferwerda and Paul Hanson, and Eric Kopeloff.

QED founder Bill Block, Moritz Borman and Oliver Stone will produce the film.

Cheung brought Emperor into the mix after first meeting Block in January. The pair also are work-ing on another QED project. (partialdiff)
