CRIME STORY Director Kirk Wong To Helm SIX

Hong Kong director Kirk Wong will be ending a ten year retirement in order to direct the martial arts action flick Six. Wong is perhaps best known for directing 1996’s Crime Story, one of Jackie Chan’s best films. He has also directed the 1998 action comedy The Big Hit starring Mark Wahlberg.

According to Deadline, the film’s story –

[F]ollows a mad scientist who fuses human and animal genes to create fierce fighters. A group of five must join together when another of their kind sets out to hunt them down and harness their powers. The project also has elements of romance and Manga.

OK. That sounds a bit nuts but in a fun way.

There is no cast in place yet, but producers are looking at a mix of Asian and American actors for the film. Production is hoped to start in November with location shooting in Louisiana and China.
