Nice to see these pix here ham, thanks so much for posting Very Happy .

The movie, 《猎狐行动》(directly translated as "Operation Fox Hunt"), is Tony's new film. There was a report saying that the shooting is starting imminently in France, and the movies could be released in October this year.

The following is an article in Chinese (there is a video in the article). People who are interested can translate using Google translate - it gets better these days. I will post English articles if I see them


打击经济犯罪!梁朝伟段奕宏开拍《猎狐行动》
首次把海外追逃搬上大银幕 两位影帝亦正亦邪

时光网讯 梁朝伟、段奕宏两大影帝联手打击经济犯罪!5月24日,电影《猎狐行动》在京举办开机发布会,这是首部将海外追逃搬上大银幕的作品。

据悉,中国猎狐行动队是公安部于2014年启动的用于缉拿海外在逃的经济犯罪嫌疑人的专项行动组,《猎狐行动》是根据他们真实的故事改编。曾与成龙合作《机器之血》的张立嘉执导,剧本打造三年之久。

谈到《猎狐行动》,梁朝伟表示之前对这个题材没有概念,由于筹拍电影,让他对海外追逃和商业罪犯有了更深入的了解。段奕宏则表示,演过一些警察,但是这次经过体验生活、近距离接触到猎狐行动的队员,还是觉得自己对警察这个职业了解甚少,深深被他们的经历感动。

  梁朝伟此前出演过警匪片《无间道》,对不起,我是警察更是经典对白,据悉,《猎狐行动》中他和段奕宏的角色也是亦正亦邪,但主创们卖了个关子,并未明示谁是警察、谁是反派。

  《猎狐行动》是梁朝伟和段奕宏两大影帝首次合作,梁朝伟表示之前看过不少段奕宏的电影,非常欣赏他,希望这次能有不同火花。段奕宏则直言:哎呀,在这种场合下,我觉得我还是要把持一下作为一个粉丝的心态。毕竟台下坐着很多领导,要按捺住激动,希望能和梁朝伟打造出一部近乎完美的作品。

  值得一提的是,发布会当天刘嘉玲也出现在现场,支持老公梁朝伟,自从梁朝伟去年约满泽东后,便由刘嘉玲暂代其经理人一职。至于刘嘉玲本人是否加盟《猎狐行动》还未可知。

A related news article:

France offers to help China catch fugitives in Operation Fox Hunt

China to send French authorities a list of suspects wanted for economic crimes
Reuters Published: 3:52am, 3 Dec, 2014
https://www.scmp.com/news/china/article/1654354/france-offers-help-china-catch-fugitives-operation-fox-hunt

France was ready to help China track down fugitive corruption suspects who might be on French soil, and did not rule out extraditing any it found to Beijing, a French justice ministry official said.

As part of an anti-corruption drive under President Xi Jinping , China is pursuing overseas-based fugitives in a campaign known as Operation Fox Hunt.

Robert Gelli, the French justice ministry's director of criminal affairs, said Chinese authorities would soon send French officials a list of people suspected of "getting rich from corruption and seeking refuge in other countries, or investing this money in other countries".

The list was expected to contain about 10 names, of whom two or three were thought to be in France, Gelli said. The rest might be elsewhere in Europe, but have existing or previous links to France.

China has arrested 288 fugitives suspected of committing economic crimes, Xinhua has said, citing activities in 56 countries. The Washington-based Global Financial Integrity Group estimates that US$1.08 trillion illegally flowed out of China from 2002 to 2011.

The three most popular destinations for corruption suspects are the United States, Canada and Australia.

China does not have extradition treaties with these countries but, according to reports, Australian police said in October they would help Beijing find and seize the assets of corrupt Chinese officials.

A Franco-Chinese extradition treaty agreed in 2007, despite opposition from human rights groups, has still not been ratified by France's parliament.

But Gelli, who last month visited his counterpart in Beijing, said the possibility of handing back suspects to China was "not at all excluded" if China met French demands and agreed not to impose the death penalty. Any extraditions would need to go through an appeals court and be signed by the prime minister.

For its part, France has asked China for more help in investigating illegal wire transfers, which have risen sharply in the past two years. Officials say French companies have lost some 300 million euros (HK$2.9 billion) in this manner, the bulk of it ending up in Chinese bank accounts.

France had made 70 requests for cooperation from China in its investigations since 2010 but had received very low response rates, Gelli said.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius has visited China more often than any other, with nine trips since May 2012.

Another news article about the press conference and the movie

'Fox Hunt' film launched in Beijing
By Zhu Bochen May 28, 2019
http://www.china.org.cn/arts/2019-05/28/content_74830220.htm

Details about the producers, cast, and background stories related to the film "Fox Hunt" were revealed at an official launch in Beijing on May 24.

Produced by Shanghai Film Group Corporation (SFG), the film is based on true stories of Operation Fox Hunt, a global Chinese anti-corruption initiative managed by the Ministry of Public Security (MPS) since 2014, which aims to track down and repatriate fugitives accused of corruption. "Fox Hunt" stands out as the first film in China to depict on the big screen the process of tackling cross-border criminal proceedings and extraditing fugitives under the Interpol Red Notices.

Throughout its three-year preparation, "Fox Hunt" found tremendous support from different organs of the MPS for conveying the successful experiences and mechanisms of international police cooperation, as well as joint efforts to tackle cross-border economic crimes.

During the launch ceremony, the Operation Fox Hunt Team of MPS, specializing in overseas fugitive affairs, made their public debut in the hopes that the film will raise public awareness about the efforts of the MPS to battle illegal fundraising and combat financial crimes.

Speaking at the launch ceremony, Meng Qingfeng, deputy minister of Public Security, said that since Operation Fox Hunt's inception in 2014, over 4,300 Chinese fugitives suspected of committing corruption have been arrested and repatriated from more than 120 countries and regions, with a total 17 billion yuan (about US$2.46 billion) in illegal funds being seized.

"It was by no means an easy task to make this film because, for one thing, it is rather important to keep the authenticity of the original law enforcement procedures to the public; and for another, it matters equally that this film shouldn't simply become a publicity campaign for 'perfect' police figures," Meng said. "Thus, different organizations and governmental bodies involved in the production of this film, especially the MPS, were highly responsible to provide support when needed," he added.

Regarding support from the MPS for the film industry, "Fox Hunt" is not the first or only case. In September 2016, "Operation Mekong," an action film about drug traffickers in the Golden Triangle of southeast Asia, told the true story of the murder of 14 Chinese crew members in the Triangle area on Oct. 5, 2011, with the help of strong support from the MPS. Similar cases can be found in the film "Operation Red Sea," released in February 2018, and others.

When asked why he chose this subject, producer Ren Zhonglun said, "Fox Hunt" is our way of honoring the heroes who have been dedicated to China's anti-corruption campaign. With film stars like Tony Leung Chiu-wai and Duan Yihong's joining the cast, this film should create good memories of the young generation in China.

As this year marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China, the film is expected to play a significant role in raising awareness so as to prevent economic crimes and demonstrate the fairness and justice of Chinese society.
