Donnie Yen Hits The Ground Running With Two Projects At Superhero Films
The newly founded production company has already begun pre-production on The Master, which is set to star Yen in a 1970's story about a gun shop owner bent on vengeance against a kung fu master who emigrates from Hong Kong. The film will see Yen returning to the set once again with director Pou-Soi Cheang, whose works include Shamo, Dog Bite Dog, and the upcoming 3D fantasy actioner, The Monkey King, also starring Yen. The next film is called Dragon City, also set to star Yen as a 1970's cop in charge of a special crime fighting task force assigned to battle corruption within the Kowloon Walled City. The film is to be directed by Derek Kwok, who recently co-wrote and co-directed the Shu Qi-starrer, Journey To The West: Conquering The Demons.
Personally, I am proud of the work Yen continues to invest in his craft. And I can't wait to see what the rest of 2013 brings us as Yen continues to do more than enough for his fans.
