Donnie Yen and Andy Lau together: CHASING THE DRAGON 追龍
« on: October 10, 2017, 05:48:49 am »
Chasing the Dragon marks the first film collaboration between Donnie Yen and Andy Lau. A remake of 1991ís To Be Number One, Andy portrays corrupt police officer Lee Rock while Donnie plays drug lord Crippled Ho. Despite never having worked together, Andy and Donnie have followed each otherís career.

Andy said Donnie has a breakthrough role in the film, ďI think Donnie really has a chance to win the Best Actor award. Iíve actually talked about this at my company many times already. During this production, I trust that everyone was able to see Donnieís changes and his dedication. That alone is enough for both a nomination and the actual award.Ē

Besides Donnie, who dropped his Ip-Man image to take on the challenges of playing a drug lor, director Wong Jing is also hoping to make a breakthrough with Chasing the Dragon. Known for his crass and over-the-top films, Wong Jingís last film From Vegas to Macau 3 was criticized for its weak script despite the star-studded cast.
