Come July 19, the extremely popular Donnie Yen and director Peter Chan will be stopping by as part of promotional efforts for their latest blockbuster Wu Xia. The affable superstar was last on our shores in 2008, when he was here promoting Painted Skin. His stature has only grown since, especially after the two Ip Man movies and many other kung fu releases.
Wu Xiapromises to be different from the run of the mill type of kung fu film though, with a detective story at the heart of the film. A cat and mouse game happens between Takeshi Kaneshiro’s detective character and Donnie’s, a man who seems to be more than meets the eye.
Here’s a clip of Donnie talking about the process of making the film and some behind the scenes footage.
