Teddy Chen Tak-sum is not planning to rest on his laurels, or taking a rest of any kind. The Bodyguards and Assassins filmmaker who won best director at the Hong Kong Film Awards on Sunday night, has suddenly announced a slate of projects he will head up this year. Chen - who spent more than 10 years getting Bodyguards and Assassins to the screen - will direct and produce his next two features with Celestial Pictures. The studio's major asset is the entire Shaw Brothers film catalogue, so it's not a surprise that one of the films will be a remake of one of their classics. For now, the studio won't say which film, but Celestial was quick to confirm it is not 1974's The Flying Guillotine, which Chen had been rumoured to be pursuing. 'Although we are unable to reveal specific details at this time, we are confident that the two projects we are developing with Mr Chen will capture the attention of global fans of Chinese cinema,' Celestial chief executive Ross Pollack said. 'As part of our slate, we will reinterpret classic Shaw Brothers' titles to introduce these films to a new generation of filmgoers.' The second project will be another action film, but this one will have a contemporary setting - and they won't tell us what this one is about either.
