S Storm <S風暴>, sequel to the 2014 crime thriller Z Storm, has released its first set of character stills. The movie about Hong Kong’s Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC), directed by David Lam (林德祿), stars Louis Koo (古天樂) reprising his role as Officer William Luk of the ICAC. The sequel also brings in new cast members Chilam Cheung (張智霖), Vic Chou (周渝民), Ada Choi (蔡少芬), and Bowie Lam (林保怡).
“Although I play the same character, the story is entirely different,” said Louis. “It’s a more challenging script. With Chilam as a Senior Inspector from the Special Crime Unit, we get to push our story to more extreme levels.”
The first movie, Z Storm, was about the ICAC investigating a charity fund involved in an elaborate ponzi scheme. In the new sequel, a tricky corruption case and a murder investigation will bring the ICAC and the Hong Kong Police Force to reluctantly work together.
“There’s going to be a lot of conflict of interest between the HKP and the ICAC. It is fast-paced and exciting,” introduced Louis.
Vic Chou, who plays an assassin in S Storm, revealed, “There are more special effects this time around. There’s more action, more flying cars, more gun fights. Our action director and stunt coordinator Bruce Law (羅禮賢) is very professional and he’s managed to make the scenes very realistic. It’s been such a thrilling experience for me.”
S Storm opens in theaters on September 15, 2016.
