Nick Cheung (張家輝) will go head to head with Jackie Chan (成龍) in a box office battle.
Premiering August 16th, the same day as Jackie Chan’s The Mystery of Dagon Seal <龍牌之謎>, Nick Cheung’s action mystery film Bodies at Rest <沉默的證人>, directed by Renny Harlin, comprises a star-studded cast featuring Richie Jen (任賢齊), Andy Yang (楊紫), Clara Lee, Roger Kwok (郭晉安), Carlos Chan (陳家樂), Feng Jiayi (馮嘉怡), Ma Shuliang (馬書良), Jin Au-yeung (歐陽靖), and Ron Ng (吳卓羲). Set in a morgue, forensic experts are threatened by masked intruders demand access to a body that was involved in a recent crime.
The large supporting cast contributes to the film’s element of surprise. Nick said, “That’s what makes it fun. There is always something going on, something that accidentally comes into the scene and breaks the balance.”
Andy Yang added, “New people are always coming to the mix. On the one hand, we need their help. On the other hand, we have to stop them from being used.”
Bodies at Rest premieres in China on August 16th, and Hong Kong on August 22nd.
