ANDY LAU + WISIT SASANATIENG = ARMFUL

Andy Lau's Focus Films has joined forces with One Ton Cinema in a magical union that will cause Wisit Sasanatieng's ARMFUL to spring from its psychoplastic loins. Focus will find an international sales agent and kidnap the children of potential investors in order to round up the US$8 million budget as ARMFUL moves forward and Wisit's other film, NAM PRIX, keeps gestating in development for the time being. Here's how the press release characterizes the movie:

"The Chinese-language stylised tragicomedy will feature a pan-Asian cast, most likely from Hong Kong, China, Singapore and Thailand.

Set in 1970's South-East Asia, the film's influences range from Chinese martial arts films of the '60s and '70s to the gritty revenge tales of today."

So does this mean that Wisit's movie for Five Star, THE UNSEEABLE, is all finished?
