UPDATE: Michael Mann's upcoming thriller (formerly titled "Cyber"), starring Chris Hemsworth and currently in post production after a shoot in Hong Kong, has been given a release date by Universal. Mann fans may be a little disappointed to hear they'll have to wait until January 16, 2015 for this one. Fingers crossed it gets moved up.

Here's an official synopsis:

UNTITLED MICHAEL MANN PROJECT

Set within the world of global cybercrime, Legendary’s UNTITLED MICHAEL MANN PROJECT follows a furloughed convict and his American and Chinese partners as they hunt a high-level cybercrime network from Chicago to Los Angeles to Hong Kong to Jakarta. Directed and produced by Michael Mann, the film stars Chris Hemsworth, Viola Davis, Tang Wei and Wang Leehom, and it is written by Morgan Davis Foehl and Mann. Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni produce alongside Mann, while Alex Garcia and Eric McLeod will serve as the executive producers.

EARLIER: Director Michael Mann's upcoming thriller, "Cyber," is currently in production in Hong Kong. Star Chris Hemsworth, Chinese actress Tang Wei and Taiwanese actor Wang Leehom have been involved in all-night shoots, per the Hollywood Reporter, in the Central heart of the territory, and at tourist spot Temple Street.

The film, which is also penned and produced by Mann, began production May 17 in Los Angeles, moving to Hong Kong June 23. It centers on an anti-cyber theft task force chasing a Southeast Asia-based hacker from the Balkans. Tang plays Hemsworth's love interest, and Wang plays her brother, according to local reports cited by THR.

EARLIER: Director Michael Mann is doing some meetings in Hong Kong, where he's planning to shoot his next film, a cyber-thriller starring Chris Hemsworth. Mann is looking to cast a pair of Chinese actors for two major roles in the currently untitled project. According to Mann's reps, the film centers around cyber theft and a Balkan hacker operating out of a South Asian country, who is being pursued by an American and Chinese task force.

THR reports that A-list Chinese actors Tang Wei ("Lust, Caution"), Nick Cheung Ka-fai ("The Stool Pidgeon") and Shawn Yue Man-lok ("I Come with the Rain") were all seen coming out of the hotel where Mann and his production team are staying.

The film will be produced by Legendary Pictures, a company well-versed in Hong Kong location shooting following Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight."

Mann's last big-screen helming venture was 2009's underrated "Public Enemies," starring Johnny Depp as John Dillinger. He was on board as executive producer and pilot director for HBO's unlucky "Luck" in 2011, which was canceled after 10 episodes.
