Fatal countdown: Reset, a high-profile Korean-Chinese co-production, has begun production with Jackie Chan taking a supervisory executive role. Starring Wallace Huo and Yang Mi, the sci-fi action adventure follows a scientist who travels back in time to rescue her kidnapped son.

A high-profile Korean technical crew, including cinematographer Choi Chan Min (Kundo: Age of the Rampant), production designer Cho Hwa Sung (New World), music director Bang Jun Seok (The Throne), and editor Kim Sang Bum (Veteran), is also on board. Yoon Hong Seung, also known as Director Chang, is directing the film.

Sources close to the production say that the film is the biggest budget co-production between the two countries, which are increasingly working as partners. “Mr Go, involving Korea’s Showbox and China’s Huayi Brothers in 2013, had an announced cost of $25 million.

Produced by China’s New Clues Films and Jaywalk Studio with Korean production house The Lamp, the film has just finished shooting and will be released at the end of 2016 following extensive VFX post-production. Hong Kong-based Golden Network Asia has picked up international rights to Reset. 

The production released one conceptual trailer and several posters for this movie. Check them out!
