Martin Scorsese has hopped onboard as executive producer on the thriller “Revenge Of The Green Dragons” which IM Global’s Octane is financing.
Andrew Lau, the director of “Infernal Affairs” which Scorsese remade as “The Departed,” is helming ‘Dragons’ which is set in 1980s New York City.
The story follows two immigrant brothers who join the Green Dragons gang and quickly rise up the ranks, becoming notorious to the city’s police.
When an ill-fated love affair pits one of the brothers against the gang leader, he sets out for revenge on the group.
Michael Di Jiacomo wrote the script, based on the true story chronicled by the New Yorker in 1992. Filming aims to begin in April.
