20 Mar â€“ Hong Kong filmmaker Andrew Lau has recently dismissed rumours that he is directing the English version of “Young and Dangerous”.
As reported on Oriental Daily, sources recently claimed that the director is collaborating with Pulse Films to helm a reboot of the popular franchise, after the London-based company announced that they have acquired the exclusive rights to “Teddy Boy” – which is the Chinese comic book that inspired the Hong Kong series of films.
When asked about it, Andrew stated that he is clueless about the whole thing.
“I have no idea how this rumour came to be. I think you need to clarify it for me,” he said, though it is uncertain whether the director is responding in jest.
According to Pulse Films’ official website, “Thomas Benski, Dimitra Tsingou and Brian Levy will be producing for Pulse Films. Andrew Lau and his producing partner Andrew Loo will be producing for Initial A. The project will be developed with an eye towards a feature film or an episodic series.”
It also quoted Lau saying, “I’ve always been drawn to characters who wage the battle between brotherhood and betrayal, themes which feature heavily in the Young and Dangerous universe. I couldn’t be more excited working with Pulse Films to introduce this world to a whole new generation and a brand new audience.”
