Jingle Ma's EUROPE RAIDERS Convene Next Month

Continuing news coming out of Hong Kong Filmart now brings word of a new film long in the making, and with none other than The Grandmaster co-star, actor Tony Leung Chiu-Wai leading point. For this, we point to director Jingle Ma who has since raided Japan and Seoul in 2000 and 2006 with Tokyo Raiders and Seoul Raiders, respectively.

This week, the word now is that Ma will direct a third installment to this particular franchise for Europe Raiders, with Leung back once more. The franchise so far encompasses a bevy of names like Kelly Chen, Ekin Cheng, Shu Qi and Richie Jen to name a few, with Leung starring in the first film as a tough James Bond-esque P.I. in Tokyo with a jilted bride-to-be in search of her missing fiancè, with the sequel focused on a case involving counterfeit printing plates.

The new installation currently doesn't have a known plot while casting ensues with the latest addition of Mr. Six, The Mermaid and newly added Valerian and xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage co-star, actor Kris Wu. Filming moves onward with Jet Tone Films rolling cameras in Europe, China and Japan next month.
