Malaysian filmmaker James Lee and the folks over at Doghouse 73 Pictures are currently in the middle of working on a small slate of shortfilms that will release between now and 2014. Another one of those shortfilms includes Lee‘s latest step into science fiction territory with a new proof-of-concept shortfilm titled Atlantis Conspiracy, which sees actor Jourdan Lee Khoo and actress Laura M. Steigers taking on armed soldiers while protecting a rare piece of powerful armor. Also starring are Mano Maniam and Sunny Pang reuniting with Lee since working respectively on the 2011 horror comedy Sini Ada Hantu and the 2012 martial arts comedy romp, The Collector.
Atlantis Conspiracy is a newly re-written shortstory from an original feature-length screenplay which Lee says he hopes will be a game-changer for Malaysia’s independent film scene. It’s worth a look, and it’s defintiely worth sharing and even observing as a possible big screen production, granted the right people come along.
