Andrew Lau To Make Hollywood Debut

Hong Kong movie-maker ANDREW LAU is set to make his Hollywood directorial debut with a RICHARD GERE blockbuster.

Lau's hit 2003 thriller INFERNAL AFFAIRS made such an impression on America's movie moguls, they have drafted in MARTIN SCORSESE to remake it under new title THE DEPARTED with a star-studded cast including LEONARDO DiCAPRIO, MATT DAMON and JACK NICHOLSON.

Lau is in negotiations with a Hollywood studio to make a drama focusing on a counsellor to be played by Gere who falls for one of his clients, according to Chinese newspaper Apple Daily. HILARY SWANK is reportedly in negotiations to play the female lead.
