New York-based Asian TV drama service DramaFever has struck a deal with movie distributor Well Go USA to add full-length feature films to its streaming catalog. DramaFever announced Tuesday that it has already added a handful of titles, including a remake of the Hong Kong action classic A Better Tomorrow, martial-arts-meets-basketball comedy Kung Fu Dunk and history drama Shaolin, starring Hong Kong cinema superstar Andy Lau.

DramaFever will add additional feature films from Well Go throughout the year, and the company’s co-founder and co-CEO Suk Park hinted in a press release at the possibility that partnerships with other film distributors are going to follow.

This move into feature films comes ahead of a launch of additional verticals in the coming months, for which DramaFever has teamed up with AMC. Together, both companies plan to launch dedicated subscription services, including a site for documentaries later this year and a horror video service in early 2015.
