At some point between now and last week, action legend Sammo Hung's latest project saw a change in cast for the once-titled The Old Soldier. It had a different premise at the time, and now it seems the project is taking on a new objective with a brand new title in the form of The Bodyguard. And to top it all off, Hung is not only directing in it, he's starring in it as well!
The story of the movie follows a retired bodyguard (Hung) who has settled in the dark and unknown corner of the world where China, Russia and North Korea meet. Suffering from the beginnings of dementia, the bodyguard is befriended by a young girl whose life is threatened when her father (Lau) falls in with the local crime world. When the girl and her father disappear, the bodyguard must call upon his long forgotten skills to save the life of his young friend.
