The actors will attend a panel hosted by developers United Front Games as the New York Asian Film Festival celebrates 10 years of one of the great modern crime films.
Chen and Lee both have roles in United Front Games’ open world homage to Hong Kong crime cinema, and will be on hand at the Walter Reade Theater on Friday, July 6th during a half hour panel hosted by the developer. United Front says Infernal Affairs, featuring a cop going undercover with the triads while the Chinese gangs have one of their own infiltrate the police, was a point of inspiration for their game. The first film, directed by Andrew Lau & Alan Mak was in large part the inspiration for Scorsese’s The Departed.
Will Yun Lee’s credits include Die Another Day, Hawaii Five-0, and a personal favorite, the elaborately over-the-type biker movie Torque (it has motorcycle fights). Chen had a role in Infernal Affairs, but many of you may have seen him most recently in The Dark Knight. In Sleeping Dogs, Lee plays the protagonist, undercover cop Wei Shen, while Chen plays triad gang member Jackie Ma.
