There is a lot of anticipation for Plastic City, not only because of Yu's incredible talent but also because of a cast that included Anthony Wong and Joe Odagiri. Yu Lik Wai is better known as Jia Zhang Ke's cinematographer. Plastic City is only his third feature film as director.
Because all news on Plastic City had seemed dormant for the past few months, it seems obvious that Yu has gone back and quietly finished the film to his liking. The trailer, far from quiet, looks better than I could have anticipated. The film takes place in São Paulo, Brazil. Part Triad film, part international action drama, Plastic City looks fantastic.
Thanks to Twitch and Nippon Cinema who reported on this way before me.
