Variety: In search of that mainland market

The refocus on the greater China market has meant a change in the kind of films that Hong Kong directors are making. Hong Kong directors have to learn to live with censorship rules. This means no ghost stories and the cops all have to be good guys - some of Hong Kong’s finest movies have focused on the antics of hyperactive ghosts and corrupt officers of the law.

The film, called “High Altitude Romance II” in Chinese, doesn’t have an English title yet.

To also revealed that he will start shooting a third movie geared at the Chinese market in July or August — a comedy starring Sammi Cheng and superstar Andy Lau.

To is juggling a third project, a thriller starring veteran Hong Kong actor Lau Ching-wan and Taiwanese actor-singer Richie Jen. To said that movie, called “Lethal Gold” in Chinese, has been delayed because the actors have other commitments, but he still aims to finish it by the end of the year.
