When Seoul meets HK

Playing a little catch up here.

Couldn’t help notice Grady Hendrix’s entry in his Kaiju Shakedown blog on the Variety website.

Soi Cheang’s Dog Bite Dog has got to be the future of cinema in East Asia. You’ve heard of Hong Kong productions casting Japanese and Mainland Chinese actors. Well, Dog Bite Dog is a Hong Kong production that has Korean director Cheang at the helm. The result? Check out the raw nastiness of the trailer at Grady’s blog.

Also note HK heartthrob Edison Chen is starring in this production. Chen will be making his U.S. debut in Hollywood’s The Grudge 2. Hard to believe that this pop-idol is going to reach an American audience. Chen’s work ethic is rather impressive (does not, will not quit) and he seems to be pushing himself to take risky roles.

Here’s a shot of the EDC looking like Ichii the Killer, a look he sports for Dog.


I’ll probably have more speculation on his prospects on my .mac site.
