Twitch is the first to report on Chink, the feature directorial debut of Stanley Yung, which they explain “approaches the (perhaps) familiar story of an aspiring serial killer from a new perspective, one that acknowledges the challenges and stereotypes of growing up as a minority in the United States, and then gives that premise a good, hard, subversive shove.”
Here’s the official plot: “Meet Eddy Tsai. He hates being Asian. He’s even changed his last name to “Richards” and lies that he was adopted by Caucasian parents. His lifelong dream is to become a serial killer like his hero Ted Bundy…”
“Eddy, played by Jason Tobin, must work to control his emotions in order to be successful at his chosen profession. He refines his skills as he sets off on his killing spree, while working in an office under the oppressive thumb of his boss, Mr. Chang (Tzi Ma). Then a new employee joins the company, Karena (Eugenia Yuan, from Charlotte Sometimes), and Eddy must reconcile his attraction to her with his deep-seated desire to be a mass murderer.”
Koji Steven Sakai (The People I’ve Slept With) wrote the script, and produced along with Quentin Lee, whose directing credits include Ethan Mao, The People I’ve Slept With, and White Frog, which was recently acquired by Wolfe Video for North American distribution.
