Revenge of the Green Dragons to premiere at TIFF

Revenge of the Green Dragons centers on Asian gangs in 1980s New York. It features some young Asian American actors whom you would not expect to see in a gangster pic like Justin Chon, Kevin Wu aka KevJumba and Harry Shum Jr. but I’m willing to give them a chance (Everybody has to start somewhere). Rapper Jin Au-Yeung and Eugenia Yuan are also in the film. It’s a rare opportunity to see Asian Americans in starring roles. The film is co-directed by Andrew Lau (Infernal Affairs, Young & Dangerous) and Andrew Loo. It will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2014. Veteran actor, Ray Liotta is also in the film and it’s executive produced by Martin Scorsese. There are two guys who know something about gangster movies.
