Okay, this is really cool. First, Andrew (Wai-keung) Lau directed Infernal Affairs, then Martin Scorsese remade it as The Departed and won and Oscar, and now the pair will unite to make Revenge of the Green Dragons. No surprise, it’s a NY-set gang thriller.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Scorsese will executive produce and Lau will direct the story of two Chinese immigrants climbing the career ladder of a mob, only to fight back against them when one of them is cast out. It’s based on a true story that was distilled into a “New Yorker” article and turned into a screenplay by Michael Di Jiacomo (Somewhere Tonight).
There is nothing about this that isn’t awesome.
