We still have a ways to go with Hong Kong film auteur Johnnie To’s Three, Election 3, and the upcoming ensemble Hong Kong cinema anthology, 8 And A Half among others. In the meantime, you can expect more from To’s ongoing work schedule in the wake of a new announcement for The War Between Huang Di And Chi You, which is brandishing a new banner and teaser.
Some history records place the events (and to be honest, I mean Wikipedia) during the Three Sovereigns and Five Emperors era with the reigning Yellow Emperor warring against the titular ancient tribal leader of the Nine Li. Judging by the teaser, it looks as if To’s approach will be a more of a fantasy-based nature, which is nonetheless welcoming for To fans.
Wai Ka Fai will also write and produce the film with a 2018 release date and casting info currently pending. Check out the announcement teaser below!
