Currently inpost-production, the project is described as the definitive version of thecritically-acclaimed film, which was shot by Christopher Doyle with Sammo Hungas action director.
Wong corralled a cast ofAsia's leading stars - including the late Leslie Cheung, Tony LeungChiu-wai and Maggie Cheung - to make the film, which then took him almosttwo years to shoot in the far west of China.
