Well Go USA has pounced on Johnnie To’s upcoming crime thriller Three, acquiring rights for North America, UK, Australia and New Zealand.

Hong Kong-based Media Asia is handling sales on the film, which stars Louis Koo, Wallace Chung and Vicki Zhao Wei and is in post-production.

Well Go is planning a theatrical release in North America day-and-date with China on June 24, 2016.
