Shawn Yue in Shamo Soi Cheang's follow-up film to DOG BITE DOG is now in production. And its name shall be SHAMO.

Starring Shawn Yue and, supposedly, Franic Ng, the flick is based on a Japanese manga called SHAMO. The touching story of a boy who has everything until he slaughters his parents, is sent to a reformatory where he's gang raped and abused, and then learns karate and turns himself into an unstoppable beating, hitting, kicking, punching and biting machine, this seems like a logical follow-up to DOG BITE DOG.

There's a still of Shawn Yue on the set, and there are more set photos here, here, here and here.

Many thanks to Little Sam (and one other sharp-eyed reader) for the heads up on this one.
