The actors set to star in Andrew Lau's new film, The Wounded City, met with the press yesterday in Hong Kong.  


Chinese mainland actress and director Xu Jinglei's appearance was a big surprise. Xu will team up with lead actor Tony Leung as a couple, while Takeshi Kaneshiro will partner with Shu Qi in Lau's new crime drama.   


Xu revealed that the role is quite challenging for her. She will star as a cop's wifeonly a chess piece in her husband's revenge project.   


Tony Leung and Takeshi Kaneshiro worked together 12 years ago in Wong Kar-wai's film Chongqing Express, but the two have never performed face to face.

This will be the first time for the two A-list actors to be in such close cooperation.   


Leung Chiu-Wai will play a bad cop collaborating with a drug lord, while Kaneshiro plays the good cop trying to bust him.

Andrew Lau explained the name of the film: "Each city has many people with vulnerable hearts and souls. How they face the harsh world is what I care about most."
