The new crime movie is titled Extraordinary Mission 非凡任务 and stars Huang Xuan (The Great Wall) as an undercover police officer who has to infiltrate the drug syndicate led by Duan Yihong (The Dead End).
Not much detail has been released about the story line, but early reports introduced Duan Yihong’s character Li Jianguo as an undercover cop before becoming an infamous drug lord. Duan Yihong is a very capable actor, and if the speculations about his character’s background are true, I’ll be anticipating another brilliant performance.
The movie is directed by Andrew Mak and written by Felix Chong, two members of the trio behind classic HK crime trilogy Infernal Affairs. Extraordinary Mission will premiere at 6pm on March 31st.
