Principal photography for Benny Chan’s (陳木勝) upcoming blockbuster thriller, The White Storm <掃毒> has finally wrapped up in Hong Kong last week. Produced by Universe International, the $124 million HKD film sees three of Hong Kong’s most highly acclaimed actors, Sean Lau (劉青雲), Louis Koo (古天樂), and Nick Cheung (張家輝), working together.

The epic crime film tells the numbing story about an undercover cop (Louis Koo) who travels to Thailand and Macau to sell a variety of narcotics. The undercover cop works closely with a Hong Kong Narcotics Bureau inspector (Sean Lau) and his subordinate (Nick Cheung), who follows the cop to Thailand.

After over six months in production, The White Storm, previously touted under the names The Cartel War and Metamorphosis, finally wrapped up its filming in Hong Kong. With the final shoots being major action sequences, the three main heroes sustained quite a few physical injuries.

During a fight scene with a Thai boxer, Louis injured an old wound on his right leg. Director Benny Chan suggested getting a stunt double to replace Louis to complete the sequence, but the actor insisted to do the stunts himself. After the shoot, Louis said, “I am a perfectionist when it comes to my job. I can deal with injuries, but I cannot deal with regrets.”

Sean, on the other hand, almost injured his eyes after an explosion scene when the debris almost grazed his eyes. Nick’s head and back were covered with scratches and bruises after he was dragged across a road flooded with shattered glass and wood.

When the shoots ended, Benny Chan and the crew applauded, thanking the three stars for their professionalism and spirit. “They knew about the dangers but still insisted to do the scenes themselves. I am grateful.”

The White Storm was filmed primarily in Hong Kong, Macau, and Thailand. The film’s first trailer was revealed at the Cannes Film Festival last month, which was followed by the unveiling of its first official teaser poster. It was reported that many international investors wanted to take part in distributing the film.

The White Storm is not just an expensively laid-out action film, but also a film about camaraderie and love between the three best friends,” said Benny Chan.

The White Storm is slated for a late 2013 release.

      Lol, there can NEVER be enough Sean, Louis, and Nick. That’s like saying there’s too much clean air to breath haha.
      Also agree about the HK film industry dying in 10 years, there doesn’t look to be many/any great new actors atm.
      Luckily, Asians age well so they will probably still look the same age when they are 60 and still be acting in the same roles lol.

      For some reason, the trailer makes it look just average and didn’t get me excited, but I’m sure it will be great. I’m just not into drug movies.

    Instead of thanking the stars for professionalism, why not up the safety measures on set?

    Would have been good movie if Nicholas Tse, Shawn Yue or Daniel Wu had a role in it. Sean Lau should team up with Louis Koo as the drug dealers while Nick Cheung and one of the above mentioned play the “good guys”. That would have been captivating if the script was well-written
