The Director’s Series 12: Kirk Wong – Taking Manhattan & Crime Story

tds12

He went abroad, to New York specifically to broaden his take on action (although it took 4 years between Gunmen and his next movie) and went into business with Jackie Chan for high profile action with the star taken down a notch and asked to act.
