After the reveal a couple of weeks back that Will Yun Lee would be heading up the voice cast of United Front Games’ Sleeping Dogs, I’ve been curious about how the developer along with publisher Square Enix planned on filling out the rest of the voice cast. And apparently, they decided to go the Hong Kong/Hollywood route, bringing on a lot of familiar actors from both industries.
More details about the cast as well as some expanded story details after the jump.
Stone, Liu, and Lee are joined by the previously announced Edison Chen (Infernal Affairs), and Tom Wilkinson (Batman Begins), who plays police inspector Pendrew. Perry Shen (Better Luck Tomorrow). Mortal Kombat’s Robin Shou joins the cast along with James Hong (Blade Runner, Kung Fu Panda), Kelly Hu (X2), Yunjin Kim (Lost), Terrence Yin (New Police Story), and Tzi-Ma (Rush Hour).
The story follows Will Yun Lee’s undercover cop character Wei Shen as he infiltrates the triads, gaining the trust of his childhood friend to join the Sun on Yee organization and eventually working his way up the ladder to become a lieutenant to boss “Red Pole” Winston Chu (Shen).
Sleeping Dogs will be available August 14th for the PS3, PC, and Xbox 360.
