A still from Hong Kong screen icons Tony Leung and Andy Lau’s highly anticipated 2022 film Goldfinger has been released.
Marking the first collaboration between the actors since the Infernal Affairs trilogy wrapped up more than 18 years ago, Goldfinger is directed and written by Felix Chong, who also helmed Infernal Affairs.
Goldfinger is the film’s Chinese title, and it is known as Once Upon a Time in Hong Kong in English. The film reportedly has a production budget of HK$350 million and is said to be one of the most expensive films made in Hong Kong cinema.
Set primarily in the 1980s, Goldfinger is a crime drama that follows the rise and fall of a Hong Kong conglomerate and its chairman Cheng Yi-yan, who undergoes a 15-year investigation by the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC). Cheng Yi-yan will be portrayed by Leung, and Lau will play an ICAC investigator.
