A sequel to the Donnie Yen/Andy Lau crime thriller ‘Chasing The Dragon’ is in the works, but the term “sequel” should be use very loosely. Similar to the “SPL” franchise, the follow-up is only related to the original thematically with a whole new set of characters and story.
WONG JING and JASON KWAN (Chasing The Dragon) both returns to direct CHASING THE DRAGON 2: MASTER OF RANSOM which follows the real-life kidnapping events that terrorised Hong Kong’s elite in the 1990s.
TONY LEUNG KA-FAI (Cold War 2) plays the kidnap kingpin with LOUIS KOO (Paradox) as the undercover agent who infiltrates his gang. GORDON LAM (Z Storm) and SIMON YAM (SPL) also star.
With the original based on real-life gangster Ng Sek-ho (aka Crippled Ho) and the sequel following real life kidnapping events, we can pretty much expect a third film to round out the trilogy covering another true crime story.
