Bey Logan will unleash his Mandarin to help put together co-production dealsThe all-around Hong Kong Kid, Bey Logan (author of "Hong Kong Action Cinema", writer of THE MEDALLION and GEN-X COPS, producer of THE TWINS EFFECT, actor in CIRCUS KID, guy who did something undefinable with Media Asia and Hong Kong rep for Arclight Films) has a new job as the Weinstein Company's Asian rep.

His official title is VP of Acquisitions and Co-Productions and he'll unleash his Mandarin to help put together co-production deals (like KILL BILL enjoyed) and scoop up Asian titles (Arclight is involved with SHA PO LANG -- does this mean it'll go to the Weinstein Company?).

Prediction: Bey Logan has a big personality. Harvey Weinstein has a big personality. I expect a year of some brilliance followed by the announcement that Bey has moved on to bigger and better. But it'll probably be a pretty good year, and from the sounds of this article I get the feeling that Harvey and Bros. will be doing some pretty heavy duty shopping at the Asian movie supermarket to build up their library.

Men bring out the best in queens… and sometimes the worst.
When two bitchy drag queens and a sly gay teenager lust after a handsome hunk… can seduction, jealousy and cunning be far behind? A hilarious comedy replete with bitchiness and camp humour set a la Bollywood.

Apart from being a drag romp, the film is an exposition of the Indian gay / transgender landscape, the humanly tender bonds between drag queens in India who form unique, non-patriarchal families and the lurking impact of HIV/AIDS.

The film draws interesting comparisons between indigenous Indian Drag Queens who are a vanishing clan and the contemporary young gays of Bombay city’s queer culture with borrowed western gay identity.
