Liotta joins Octane’s Dragons
Top brass at IM Global’s genre division announced on Wednesday  that Ray Liotta has joined the Triad thriller Revenge Of The Green Dragons as production got underway.
Octane is fully financing and handles international sales on the story about a murder investigation involving a New York-based Asian gang. The screenplay is based on a New Yorker article by Frederic Dannen.
Liotta will play the lead New York detective and joins new cast members Justin Chon and Harry Shum Jr.
Hong Kong’s Andrew Lau directs and Andrew Loo produces. Martin Scorsese serves as executive producer, reuniting with Liotta 13 years after the release of Goodfellas.
Scorsese and Lau are no strangers, either – Scorsese adapted Lau’s Internal Affairs into Oscar winner The Departed.
