Also starring is Super Bodyguard co-star, actor and martial artist Xing Yu (a.k.a. Shi Yanneng) along with Ip Man trilogy leading lady Lynn Hung, and Taiwanese/Korean actress Hannah Quinlivan. Bliss Media is financing the film as well as producing and overseeing its China release with The Odyssey (2016) helmer Jérôme Salle co-producing.
