Directing twins Danny and Oxide Pang will helm the first Asian digital 3-D horror film, the $4.5 million The Child's Eye in 3D, which will begin shooting in June in Thailand, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Pang brothers (The Messengers) are currently in post-production on their $12 million comic-book adaptation The Storm Warriors, due in December, the trade paper reported.
The Child's Eye in 3D tells the story of six stranded Hong Kong travelers during the shutdown of the Bangkok airport in the November 2008 anti-government protest and their supernatural encounters after the disappearance of three in the group.
The showpiece of the film will be an underworld made up of paper replica houses, filled with paper dolls and paper cars—a city formed by all the paper-made facsimiles of the real world burnt and offered to the deceased in the traditional Chinese ancestor-worship ritual. The twins also will be introducing a monster in the film.
