The new work of the kung-fu action film master, with Andy Lau Tak-wah, also called Liu Dehua in Mandarin language, and famous Jackie Chan starring, will tell the story of a jewelry robber, who is wanted by Russian and Chinese intelligence. The story will develop mainly in the city of Vladivostok. The film will contain many armed clashes and fighting scenes, therefore the director plans to engage local martial arts athletes in them.
In 2005 Vladivostok played host to South Korean director Kwak Kyung-Taek who shot his blockbuster Typhoon here. Earlier, in 2003 the Japanese shot their The Hotel Venus, which won the Debutant Contest within the framework of Moscow Film Festival. Later on, in summer 2004 Chinese filmmakers chose Vladivostok for their film Shanghai Story.
