Vietnamese actress VERONICA NGO aka NGO THANH VAN (Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny, Star Wars: The Last Jedi) is making her way back to hardcore martial arts action in the upcoming thriller FURIE aka HAI PHUONG.
Ngo pulls double duties as producer and star of the film which is described as “in the vein of the international box office hit action film The Raid, Furie follows Hai Phuong (Ngo) a gangster who retired from the life of crime after the birth of her daughter. Despite lying low in the countryside, she can’t seem to escape her violent past when her daughter is kidnapped right before her eyes. Hai Phuong is forced back into the life she swore she would leave behind and will stop at nothing to get her daughter back from the infamous organ-trafficking ring”.
LE VAN KIET (The Rich Woman, The Lost Tour: Vietnam) is directing along with KEFI ABRIKH (Jason Bourne, Lucy) serving as action choreographer.
Arclight is handling the international sales for the film which will be presented at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival.
Gary Hamilton of Arclight Films stated: “The appetite for female-led action films and for thriller genre fare is very strong in the international marketplace. Veronica Ngo, the star of Furie, is one of Vietnam’s biggest stars right now making massive international waves. This film is the next Raid and is a real hidden gem…”
