Well Go USA Entertainment has scheduled director Wong Ching Po and acclaimed Action Director Yuen Wo Ping’s action film Once Upon A Time In Shanghai for release on Blu-Ray Disc and DVD in January.
Everyone wants to make their fortune in Shanghai, and Ma Yongzhen (Philip Ng) dreams of making an honest living – not with his fists. But the town is torn apart by rival gangs and when Boss Long Qi (Andy On) learns of Ma’s formidable martial arts skills, he’s brought into the family. Opposed to drug trafficking and leaking government secrets, Qi makes powerful enemies. And soon, Ma won’t have a choice. Fight or lose everything – including his friend (Sammo Hung) and his love, Tie Ju (Michelle Hu).
