Hong Kong’s Emperor Motion Pictures (EMP) unveiled Dante Lam’s next directorial project, action romance To The Fore, at Filmart today.
Starring Eddie Peng and Ethan Juan, the film is a love story set against the backdrop of the competitive cycling world. Production is scheduled to start in the summer with filming to take place in Taiwan, China, Italy and Korea. The female lead of the film has yet to be cast.
Peng starred in Lam’s Unbeatable, a mixed martial arts-themed drama, which also featured a love story. Lam plans to repeat the combination of action and romance in To The Fore but is aiming for a much younger audience.
Juan’s credits include Andrew Lau’s The Guillotines and Doze Niu’s Taipei-set gangland drama Monga.
Lam’s last film, That Demon Within, premiered at the Berlin film festival and is screening as the closing film of the Hong Kong International Film Festival. EMP also produced That Demon Within, while Bona Film Group produced Unbeatable.
