This film is scheduled for nationwide release on March 24, 2000.

Here is the premise
(from http://www.netasia.net/users/sgc_wdi/romeo.html):

"Han Sing (Li) and Trish O'Day (Aaliyah) come from different sides of
the world but they have a lot in common. Han has paid heavily for being
loyal to his brother Po -- it cost him his career in the Hong Kong
Police and landed him in jail. Now Po is dead and Han is compelled to
avenge him. The task will demand all of Han's mental discipline and
martial arts skill plus help from an unlikely source -- O'Day's
beautiful and rebellious daughter, Trish. Like Han, Trish loses the
brother she loved to crime war. For Trish, the final struggle is not
about revenge: it is about making the terror end before everyone else
she cares for is dead."

This makes me think of a discussion here some months ago in which was
reported a film in the making called "Gilligan's Tempest." Did this/will
this ever materialize?  It sounded like a hoot!
