FOX Networks Group (FNG) Asia and its flagship Chinese movies channel, SCM, are planning to invest in and co-produce four feature films developed by mm2 Entertainment.
The four films came from a Scriptwriting Masterclass (conducted in March 2016) and Scriptwriter’s Lab (held from July to December 2016) in a partnership between mm2 Entertainment and the Info-comm Media Development Authority (IMDA). Two of the movies, Shadows and Scared To Death, will be shot in Hong Kong. The other two, Number One and The Fatekeepers, in Singapore and Malaysia.
Cora Yim, senior VP and head of Chinese entertainment at FOX Networks Group Asia, said, “Investing in Asia’s next generation of creative talent is a top priority for FOX Networks Group Asia. By developing amazing scriptwriters in the region, we can bring even more awe-inspiring stories to life. We are thrilled to support mm2 Entertainment in taking promising content from conception, to script, to viewers across the region.”
“We’re very pleased with FNG’s investment in the development of this slate of movies,” said Ng Say Yong, chief content officer of mm2 Entertainment. “Their regional presence and expertise have helped shape the creative and commercial texture of these films, to ensure their reach to audiences beyond Singapore.”
