Wong Kar-wai to direct a web drama for Amazon

Wong Kar-wai, the quintessential auteur of Hong Kong cinema, has been confirmed as the director of upcoming crime drama Tong Wars 堂斗, which will be created by Paul Attanasio (House) and streamed internationally on Amazon.

Wong Kar-wai is the mastermind behind films such as Ashes of Time, In the Mood for Love and The Grandmaster (let’s just pretend See You Tomorrow never happened), and this time he’ll be bringing his signature style to drama land. The hour-long series will reportedly focus on the clashes between Chinese immigrants and the crime syndicates in San Francisco’s Chinatown.

Given the director’s work habits, I’ll be thanking my lucky stars if we see the final product within five years.
