Starring Louis Koo, Miriam Yeung and Gao Yuanyuan, the film is a sequel to To’s 2011 hit Don’t Go Breaking My Heart. Magnum also picked up two other Media Asia titles as part of a package – To’s Romancing In Thin Air and Gary Mak’s SDU: Sex Duties Unit.
Media Asia has also sold animated feature Monkey King Reloaded to Turkey’s Saran Media and Myanmar’s Golden Yellow Tree, which also acquired action thriller Helios.
