Biography

Cutting his teeth on the hyper-violent and stylish "gun-fu" films of 1990s Hong Kong cinema, Terence Chang benefitted particularly from his longtime friendship and working relationship with director and gun-fu master John Woo. Chang started as a production manager on fairly standard Hong Kong offerings, eventually reaching the position of producer. It was in this capacity that he first collaborated with Woo, on the director's uncharacteristically lighthearted movie about a trio of larcenous friends, "Once a Thief" (1991). The two collaborated on Woo's next effort the following year, the tougher and bloodier cop gun-fest, "Hard Boiled". When the director got the call to helm Hollywood action movies, Chang went along as a producing partner. The duo first teamed up in America on 1996's "Broken Arrow", about a rogue Air Force pilot attempting to steal a Stealth fighter. The budgets were bigger and the ammo count higher in their next Hollywood effort, "Face/Off" (1997), starring Nicolas Cage and John Travolta in interchangeable roles as a face-borrowing master criminal and the FBI agent trying to stop him. Chang continued to work with Woo, contributing his producing talents to such fare as popcorn espionage actioner "Mission: Impossible II" (2000), but he also worked on films made by other helmers. These include the New York City Chinese triad gang story "The Corruptor" (1999) and the 2003 comic book fantasy adaptation "Bulletproof Monk", starring Woo regular Yun-Fat Chow.
