REVENGE OF THE GREEN DRAGONS is an upcoming action crime drama film directed by acclaimed Hong Kong filmmaker Andrew Lau (刘伟强) and Andrew Loo (卢弘轩), written by Michael Di Jiacomo and Andrew Loo. The film stars Ray Liotta, Justin Chon, Harry Shum, Jr., Kevin Wu (aka KevJumba / 吴凯文), and Billy Magnussen.
Legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese, who helmed a remake of Lau’s Infernal Affairs (无间道) with 2006′s The Departed, is serving as executive producer on the film. Set to premiering at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival, it marks Lau’s second English-language film following thriller 2008’s The Flock starring Richard Gere.
In the vein of crime classics like Mean Streets and Infernal Affairs, REVENGE OF THE GREEN DRAGONS follows two immigrant brothers Sonny (Chon) and Steven (Wu) who survive the impoverished despair of New York in the 1980s by joining Chinatown gang “The Green Dragons”. The brothers quickly rise up the ranks, drawing the unwanted attention of hard-boiled city cops. After an ill- fated love affair pits Sonny against his own brother, he sets out for revenge on the very gang who made him who he is.
