The latest production of director Guang Hu, famous for his black comedies, is set to hit cinema screens nationwide. The absurd comedy "Design of Death" will be released on April 28, mtime.com reports.

Up-and-coming actor Huang Bo portrays a mischievous hooligan who constantly seduces widows and steals things from graves. Huang, alongside award-winning actor Simon Yam, Alec Su and actress Yu Nan are involved in series of absurd stories as part of the plotline for "Design of Death".

Guang told the media that each member of the cast and crew contributed ideas on how to go about playing tricks on other people, however, he emphasized that the characters only carry out these tricks for fun rather than to seriously hurt others.

Based on the novel of the same name, the movie tells the story of a group of villagers who try to design the death of a well-known local hooligan.
