Hong Kong director Dante Lam will be shooting another film in Malaysia.

12 Jul - Award-winning Hong Kong director Dante Lam who will soon release his latest film "To the Fore" in cinemas, has announced that his next film will be partially shot in Malaysia.

No stranger to the country, Lam had shot his 2012 action film "The Viral Factor", starring Jay Chou and Nicholas Tse in Malaysia too.

"I came to Malaysia for six days to look at some suitable location to shoot the film," said the 50-year-old director to Cinema Online. "I went to Ipoh and then Penang."

The director revealed that about 60 per cent of the film will be shot in Malaysia because he wants to shoot in places with forests and caves.

The untitled film would be an action one about a police and thief which will star an actor from mainland China as well as Hong Kong actor Louis Koo.

The shooting is expected to take place this September.

Lam's latest film "To the Fore", starring Eddie Peng, Choi Siwon, Shawn Dou and Wong Luo Dan will be released in both Malaysia and Singapore this 6 August 2015.
