Limbo is an upcoming Hong Kong action thriller film directed by Cheang Pou-soi and starring Gordon Lam, Cya Liu, Mason Lee and Hiroyuki Ikeuchi. The film is based on the novel, Wisdom Tooth, by Chinese novelist Lei Mi.[2]

Plot[edit]

Rookie police officer Yam Hoi (Mason Lee) is a recent graduate of the police academy. Due to a wave of serial killings, Hoi is partnered with Brother Chin (Gordon Lam), who was recently reinstated on the force. However, the duo is unable to solve the cases and instead causes series of incidents. Later, Chin re-encounters a street child, Wong To (Cya Liu), who murdered his wife and son, and his anger makes him spiral out of control. Hoi clumsily loses his pistol, which is found by the serial killer. With the killer lurking in the city, a crisis grows closer.

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

Principal photography for Limbo began in September 2017 in Hong Kong, with To Kwa Wan and Kwun Tong being the main filming locations as many old buildings are located in these districts of the city.[3]

On 2 October 2017, filming of a fight scene between actors Gordon Lam and Hiroyuki Ikeuchi took place on a rooftop in Kwun Tong. Both Lam and Ikeuchi lost 8 pounds and 30 pounds of weight respectively for their roles in the film.[4][3] On 8 October 2017, which was also Lam's birthday, filming took place in Kowloon Bay for a scene where Lam was going through a garbage chute looking for evidence.[5][6]
