Burbank, Calif. (Feb. 3, 2018) — “Detective Chinatown 2”, the follow up film to the 2015 Chinese hit that went on to gross more than $126 million (RMB 820m), reunites writer/director Chen Sicheng and stars Wang Baoqiang and Liu Haoran, who reprise their roles as detectives Tang Ren and Qin Feng, respectively. 

With filming in New York City and Beijing, the story follows the case of New York Chinatown godfather Uncle Qi, who’s missing son turns into a murder investigation. Detective duo Tang and Qin team up again to hunt down the killer — this time with some help from the International Detective Alliance. 

The main cast also includes Xiao Yang, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Michael Pitt and Japanese star Tsumabuki Satoshi.

Warner Bros. Pictures announced Jan. 19 that it had acquired domestic distribution rights for the follow up to the Chinese hit “Detective Chinatown” from Wanda Media Co., Ltd., according to Jeff Goldstein, president of domestic distribution for Warner Bros. Pictures, and Jiang Defu, general manager of Wanda Media. The deal marks the second collaboration between the two companies, following last year’s worldwide blockbuster “Wonder Woman.”

The new action comedy has been slated for release in 48 markets and will open on Chinese New Year, Feb. 16, 2018.

“China has become a major contributor to the global film industry and Wanda is a company at the forefront of that rise,” Goldstein said. “We are excited to expand our relationship with them and to bring this new project to American audiences.”

Jiang said the film is an exciting new cooperation that will expand the global footprint of Chinese language films. 

“Warner Bros., as one of the most successful studios in the industry, will bring our latest movie to North American audiences, and we look forward to the launch of this fresh, comedy detective film during the Chinese New Year,” Jiang said.

This film is a presentation of Wanda Media Co., Ltd. And Horgos Shine Asia Pictures & Culture Media Co., Ltd., in association with China Film Co., Ltd., Wanda Pictures (Hong Kong) Co., Ltd., Huoerguosi Happy Picture Co., Ltd., Youku Pictures Co., Ltd., Xiomi Pictures Co., Ltd., Horgos Youth Enlight Pictures Co., Ltd., Beijing Sparkle Roll Media Corporation, Horgos Jin Yi Film Co., Ltd., Zhe Jiang Hengdian Film Co., Ltd., Dadi Century (Beijing) Co., Ltd., Gosh Film Entertainment Co., Ltd., Yili JoyPictures Co., Ltd., Huawen Picture Co., Ltd., and Lian Ray Pictures.
