Anonymous will also star Wang Yibo (A Chinese Odyssey Part Three), Zhou Xun (Cloud Atlas), and Eric Wang (Dying To Survive). It is written and directed by Cheng Er (Lethal Hostage, The Wasted Times).

Anonymous will mark Leung’s first film since he made his Hollywood debut in this year’s Marvel’s Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings. Leung portrayed Shang-Chi’s father, Wenwu, a ruthless warlord who harnesses the power of ten mystical rings to make himself immortal.

Shang-Chi received a four-star review from NME for its “smart and satisfying superhero romp”.

Prior to Shang-Chi and Anonymous, Tony Leung made his name as a legend in the Hong Kong film industry through films such as Wong Kar-Wai’s Happy Together and In The Mood For Love.
