Lust, Caution Duo Join Cyber Thriller
Stars online for Michael Mann's latest

Tang Wei and Wang Leehom - Lust, Caution

It may not have a title yet, but Michael Mann's upcoming cyber-crime thriller has gathered quite a cast. Chris Hemsworth is already set to play the lead, with Viola Davis also onboard, and now Lust, Caution stars Tang Wei and Wang Leehom have joined the roster.

The two Chinese thesps previously worked together on Ang Lee's World War II thriller, but this time they'll be playing a brother and sister duo, and we also know that Tang will be Hemsworth's character's love interest.

Beyond that, it's all still hidden behind firewalls and security protocols galore. If we were guessing we'd speculate that Wang and Tang will be Chinese hackers from the darkly-rumoured government programmes that are supposed to be infiltrating Western powers right now. That, or they're perfectly respectable programmers who help to debunk such paranoid conspiracy theories.

In any case, the film starts shooting in June in LA, Hong Kong and other locations that are yet to be revealed, from a script by Mann himself and Morgan Foehl.
