There's a name for the much-rumored three-director Hong Kong film coming out later this year: IRON TRIANGLE. Monkeypeaches is reporting the plot of this US$5 million film directed by Tsui Hark, Ringo Lam and Johnnie To. With Louis Koo and Simon Yam set to participate, each director will take a 30 minute chunk of the film and try to flummox the guy coming after them.

Tsui Hark will take the beginning, which is about a bunch of guys kvetching about money troubles and getting approached by a mysterious stranger who gives them a treasure map. Ringo Lam will take the middle, and Johnnie To will take the end. They're starting to shoot by the end of July and they'll combine the footage later and it's no accident as to who's taking what part. Apparently each director is working to their acknowledged strength: Hong Kong film biz folks think that Tsui Hark kicks off in style, while Ringo Lam is great at amping up the plot twists and drama and that Johnnie To is always a good finisher.

Sun Honglei (the General in SEVEN SWORDS) and Kelly Lin are also set to star.
