Film Production company Bona Film Group's new project lineup for this year will include a "wuxia drama with guns" directed by Tsui Hark, Mtime.com reports.

Yu Dong, CEO of Bona Film Group told Sina.com prior to the company's official release of its film lineup for this year that it would produce a 3D version of "Tracks in the Snow Forest." Based on the novel of the same name, the film will tell the legendary story about a hero named Yang Zirong who outwits a group of gangsters in northeastern China in 1946. Yu said he expected famous actor/director Jiang Wen to play the lead role.

Bona Film Group's other new films for 2012 include "Overheard 3," which will be co-directed by Siu Fai Mak and Felix Chong, Wong Jing's "The Last Tycoon" starring Chou Yun-Fat, and an untitled crime thriller directed by Dante Lam.

Bona Film Group is the highest revenue-grossing private film company and the most frequently nominated producer of films considered for awards at the Hong Kong Film Awards.

The company produced Tsui Hark's successful, 3D wuxia blockbuster "Flying Swords of Dragon Gate," which has earned more than 500 million yuan (US$79.2 million) since it was released last December 15.
