Chinese-American actress and director Joan Chen is set to work in both capacities on the three-story anthology feature “Seeing Red” reports Screen Daily.
Chen will star in and helm one of three separate revenge stories about women in New York’s Chinatown. Chen will play a devoted housewife who discovers her husband is living a double life.
Liselle Mei helms one of the other segments, while a third female director will be added soon.
Joyce Pierpoline and Richard Lormand are producing. The $4-6 million project shoots later this Fall and will be a mix of English and Mandarin.
