The Star Group has picked up pay-TV rights to Donnie Yen-starrer Painted Skin for Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan.

The deal was concluded by sales startup Eastern Mordor Film.

Headed by Ningxia Film Studio's vice president Pang Hung who is also the film's main producer, the new Hong Kong-based company was formed by the production's eight investors from China, Hong Kong and Singapore to handle worldwide sales.

A wide release with over 1,000 screens in China on September 28 is scheduled for the lucrative National Day week holidays.
