According to Production Weekly, Chow Yun-Fat will star in the gritty action thriller Deadly Deception.

James Fargo (The Enforcer, Every Which Way But Loose) wrote the script and will also direct.

Philip Chase (Chow Yun-Fat) is a highly skilled Hong Kong detective who travels to Los Angeles to solve his sister's murder. Philip matches wit and trades punches with the greedy, devious Johnathan Beardsley (John Leguizamo), who is mastermind behind a conspiracy much larger than Philip can fathom.

The film starts shooting in mid-May in Hong Kong.
