It's been about a year since actor and action star Vincent Zhao has been active. Thankfully nowadays the White Haired Witch Of Lunar Mountain co-star can be seen in costume for director Gordon Chan in the new period epic loosely titled, The God Of War.
The film has apparently just begun shooting with a script that focuses on a general who trains an army to fight back against Japanese pirates. Chan reunites with action choreographer Ku Huan-Chiu, the latter whose most recent credits include Chinese box office hit, Monster Hunt and A Monk Comes Down The Mountain, as well as Chan's own fantasy trilogy, The Four, and a bit more on the upcoming AMC series, Into The Badlands.
Currently there's no other info as things are a bit early but a release is obviously likely for next year while we get a glimpse at Zhao suited for the look (hat tip to @AsianFilmStrike)

A 2018 release may be likely for that matter considering it's been about a year since the first trailer went live and will yet finally see action star Max Zhang deservedly on the big screen.
