Lu Chuan Enlists Hollywood FX House For New Sci-Fi Project
Prime Focus is one of the biggest VFX houses in town, and their resume includes some of this year's biggest hits, including Guardians of the Galaxy, Transformers: Age of Extinction and Edge of Tomorrow, not to mention the likes of Gravity, The Great Gatsby and Tron: Legacy.
Lu Chuan is best known for his stunning black and white war drama City of Life and Death, as well as Kekexili: Mountain Patrol and 2012's period thriller The Last Supper. His latest project is an as-yet untitled sci-fi adventure, and in a recent interview with THR he said, "It's a fresh, new experience for me. It takes a while for me to get used to making a commercial movie. I love to watch thrillers and action movies, now I get to make one."
This is definitely a project we'll be keeping an eye on as it moves into production. All of Lu's films to-date have shown an arresting visual aesthetic that could yield fascinating things in a high-octane science fiction setting. With a powerhouse like Prime Focus working alongside him, the results could be visually spectacular in a way recent offerings from mainland China have failed to achieve. Let's just hope the script is also up to scratch.
