Stephen Fung will direct the new film adaptation of “The Count of Monte Cristo”, with Jack Huston starring and acting as screenwriter, and the two acting as executive producers at the same time.
This is also Stephen Fung’s new entry into Hollywood directing after directing the Netflix series “Wu Assassins” in 2019.
Dumas’ classic novel “Le Comte de Monte-Cristo” has been adapted and filmed into film and television works many times.
It is reported that the new version of the story will be set in Asia and the United States. A poor man, Nicholas Christo (Jack Huston), was framed and betrayed and thrown in jail for more than ten years. Now he has to find in this more cruel and corrupt world. Be fair.
Constantine Pictures said that the film will add some of the styles of “Succession Season 1,” “Old Boy” and “John Wick”, which is expected to become a popular, grand thriller that focuses on Eastern and Western stories.
