THE EMPTY HANDS: Golden Scene Acquires The Chapman To Martial Arts Drama
Noted actor Chapman To (Golden Chicken trilogy, Aberdeen, The Man From Macau 2) is venturing into his latest directing foray with martial arts drama, The Empty Hands, which has reportedly been picked up for international sales by Golden Scene. The film, currently in post-production, marks To’s second directing effort following the 2016 comedy, Let’s Eat in which To himself stars, as well as starring in Herman Yau’s crime comedy, The Mobfathers, with Anthony Wong Chau-Sing, Gregory Wong and Phillip Keung.
The Empty Hands, produced by To and Tang Wai But, tells of a daughter of a karate coach eager to sell late father’s dojo only to learn that one of his worst students owns a 51% stake. Singer and actress Stephy Tang who is slated to appear in Fruit Chan’s new action-packed crime thriller, The Invincible Dragon, with Max Zhang and Anderson Silva, stars in the film along with To, actor Stephen Au who stars in Lawrence Ah Mon’s crime pic, Dealer Healer, and action legend Kurata Yasuaki who himself is poised to star in John Woo’s inspired remake, Manhunt.

I've seen training photos from this film. Stephy Tang looks quite good when training with Stephen Au. I hope she will continue her martial arts training after making the film.
