New Wong Kar-Wai Project ‘Chungking Express 2020’ Approved By China https://t.co/UxRG3a9ZIb— Variety (@Variety) September 25, 2020
"The filing offers a short, but slightly cryptic, plot summary: “In ’90s Hong Kong, broken-hearted Policeman 223 encounters a blonde female assassin, and they spend a short time together overnight. Policeman 663, who also is getting over heartbreak, sees his life gradually changed by the intrusions of the ‘person of his dreams.’ In 2036, young Xiao Qian and May are unwilling to be held back by genetic partnerings, and insist on finding their own ‘destiny’.”
-The movie has already received government approval on Sept 23th, which means it can move forward in production.
-Chinese media reports speculate that the future portion of this film will unfold in the actual Chinese city of Chongqing (formerly spelled as the titular “Chungking”), where Wong (aka Wang Jiawei in mainland China) has been publicly spotted over the past year, sporting his signature look of a black cap and sunglasses.
-not much more is known.
