For fans of Executive Director Martin Scorsese and the mean street crime drama, a new film is on the horizon. Revenge of the Green Dragons will feature some familiar faces, including Justin Chon (Twilight: Breaking Dawn), Kevin Wu, Harry Shum, Jr. (Glee, Crouching Dragon Hidden Dragon II: The Green Destiny), Shuya Chang (Chinese Puzzle), with Geoff Pierson (J Edgar), Billy Magnussen (Into the Woods) and the infamous Ray Liotta.
In the style of crime classics like Mean Streets and Infernal Affairs, Revenge of the Green Dragons follows two immigrant brothers Sonny (Justin Chon) and Steven (Kevin Wu) who survive the impoverished despair of New York in the 1980s by joining Chinatown gang “The Green Dragons”. The brothers quickly rise up the ranks, drawing the unwanted attention of hard-boiled city cops. After an ill- fated love affair pits Sonny against his own brother, he sets out for revenge on the very gang who made him who he is. From acclaimed Director Andrew Lau and Andrew Loo, and legendary Executive Producer Martin Scorsese comes a brilliant mix between a Hong Kong action film and a New York City crime thriller, portraying the never-before-told true story of “The Green Dragons”.
