Hong Kong film director Wong Kar-wai is delving into English language films for the first time. According to Screen International, Wong's production company, Block 2 Films, will work with Fox Searchlight Pictures to co-finance and co-distribute a minimum of three English-language films. Fox Searchlight Pictures is the independent film arm of Twentieth Century Fox. Wong, creator of the critically acclaimed Chungking Express, Happy Together, and In the Mood for Love says: 'Fox Searchlight is an admirable and positive force in the global film industry because they are not afraid to push the envelope. 'I see this as a great opportunity to develop projects together and bring new currents to our respective audiences.' Wong is currently in Shanghai with his sidekick and director of photography Christopher Doyle working on his labour of love, 2046.
