The Bounty and Concerto Of The Bully helmer Fung Chih-Chiang’s new crime thriller, A Witness Out Of The Blue, will have its day in theaters locally on October 12. That date is only a ways from now as we could hear more on an extended outing in the West.
Louis Koo takes the mantle for this new thriller after featuring in a pair of explosive sequel releases this year, including The White Storm 2 and Jazz Boon’s Line Walker 2: Invisible Spy. Rounding out the cast is actress Jessica Hsuan, Louis Cheung and actress Cherry Ngan.
A man is found dead inside an apartment with a strange noise, “Help! Help!” next to the body. Detective Frank Lam arrives at the scene with his commanding officer Yip Sir to find the sole survivor and eye witness. Yip Sir is convinced the deceased, Henry Tsui is killed by his partner in crime, Sunny Wong when they had a fight over how to divvy up the loot from an armed robbery a month ago. When Frank confronts Sunny, Sunny denies all allegations and names Yip Sir as the killer. Frank’s only hope in cracking the case lies in the not-so-human witness left at the scene of the crime.
Derek Yee (Kung Fu Monster, Absurd Accident, Guilt By Design) serves as producer.
