Herman Yau’s newest sequel continuation heads to the big screen in July with The White Storm 2: Drug Lords. A July 12 release is in tow following the film’s acquisition by CMC Pictures with releases slated for North America, Australia and New Zealand.
In the quadripartite drug market in Hong Kong, Jizo (Louis Koo) gradually expands in collaboration with some Mexican drug lords across the border, followed by a chain of dog-eat-dog events which shock and bring the whole trade on high alert. On the other hand, Yu Shun-Tin (Andy Lau), a former gangster member and now a financial tycoon, is offering a bounty to eliminate the No.1 drug dealer in Hong Kong, which causes a stir in society. Policeman Fung (Michael Miu) intends to arrest Jizo, but now he is responsible for protecting Jizo instead due to the bounty. A final battle has broken out between the two tycoons which were once lesser-known brothers from the same triad.
Also starring are Karena Lam and Cherrie Ying.
