Director Peter Chan will remake the Jimmy Wang Yu classic “One Armed Swordsman” bringing to life a more bloody and cruel tale of the original movie.
Donnie Yen will play the well known character, he will be joined by Japanese-Chinese actor Jing Chengwu.
Yen is also choreographing the movies fight scenes and there are plans to start Jing Chengwu training before shooting begins later this year.
Donnie is set to play a brutal and cruel character who is on the run, but undergoes a transformation by Jing Chengwu when he is captured.
In the new film, Super Hot Takeshi Kaneshiro will play a detective chasing after Universe Strongest one-armed swordsman Donnie Yen. In contrast to the heroic roles he usually plays, Donnie Yen will overturn his image to become a ruthless serial killer! His character is a man who has been wanted by the government for half his life. During an escape, he meets a detective played by Takeshi Kaneshiro, who guided him back to the right path in the end.
Director Peter Chan believes Takeshi Kaneshiro is a perfect fit to play the role of the detective. They previously collaborated on 2007's The Warlords, and will work with Donnie Yen for the first time. Since Donnie Yen is also the stunt coordinator of this movie, his costar Takeshi Kaneshiro is expected to undergo some martial arts training before filming begins.
Shooting begins next month.
