Distribution Workshop Nabs International Sales For Martial Arts Drama, THE HIDDEN BLADE

Hong Kong outlet Distribution Workshop is on hand for buyers at Cannes with its own package as events kick off this week. Their slate currently includes a few martial arts titles one of which hails the return of acclaimed novelist and filmmaker Xu Haofeng with the new movie, The Hidden Blade.

Legendary kung fu cinema star, actor Chen Kuan Tai (Iron Monkey, Dragon Tiger Gate), reunites with our director for another offering inspired by Xu's own literary work, sets in 1930's China where an elderly sword maker's skillset continues to attract the embattled, war-ridden outside world that once forced him and his family into hiding. The actor is joined by actress Jessie Li, and in reunion with fellow Xu cohort, actor Zhang Aoyue following the 2015 martial arts period drama, The Final Master, which won Best Action Choreography at the Golden Horse Awards that year.

The other title housed currently at Distribution Workshop is Yuen Woo-Ping's Ten Thousand Faces Of Dunjia which opens in China later this year. (Screendaily)
