Based on the 1992 novel The Chinaman from Stephen Leather, The Foreigner tells the story of one man’s obsession to find the IRA bombers who killed his daughter in a senseless attack. Chan plays the grieving father Quan on a mission to track down the killers no matter what the cost. Money is no issue but when Liam Hennessy, played by Pierce Brosnan, unconvincingly denies knowing who they are Chan wages a one-man war to find the truth.

The synopsis for the book reads;

Jungle-skilled, silent and lethal, Nguyen Ngoc Minh had killed for the Viet Cong and then for the Americans. Imprisoned and tortured after the Communist victory, he escaped with his wife and baby daughter to Hong Kong – but only after being forced to watch Thai pirates rape and kill his two eldest daughters.

The Foreigner

Now the proud owner of the Double Happiness Chinese takeaway in South London, he watches his daughter grow into a beautiful young woman, secure in the knowledge that the horrors of his homeland are finally behind him.

Until the day an IRA bomb in a Knightsbridge store snatches his family from him in a horrific maelstrom of fire and glass.

Then, simply but persistently, he began to ask the authorities who were the men responsible, what was being done. And was turned away, fobbed off, treated as a nuisance.

Which was when the Chinaman, denied justice, decided on revenge. And went back to war.

Filmed in London, The Foreigner is directed by Casino Royale and Green Lantern director Martin Campbell, the film also stars Liu Tao, Katie Leung and Manolo Cardona.

The Foreigner will be released later this year.
