“Delusion,” the new franchise movie by Hong Kong horror director Danny Pang (“Bangkok Dangerous,” “Re-cycle”) has been acquired by Easternlight, the Asian arm of Sydney and Los Angeles-based Arclight.
The film features three connected stories about characters suffering from delusional disorder and various stages of schizophrenia: a girl who is “seeing things” after an unrequited romance; a girl and her perfect yet imaginary boyfriend; and an insomniac convinced he’s witnessing a girl held captive by a man living across from his apartment.
The film is intended to be the first element of a multi-part franchise, like the Pang brothers’ “Eye” series
It stars Hong Kong singer-actor Chau Pakho (“Shrek the Third,” “12 Golden Ducks”), Cheng Yuan Yuan, An Hu, Hong Chen and Cantopop legend Lee Lung Kei; there’s also a special appearance by Timmy Hung, son of Sammo Hung.
