Filming for Peter Chan's star-studded film 'Wu Xia' begins
Posted: 26 August 2010 1249 hrs
YUNNAN: Hong Kong action star Donnie Yen, Japanese heartthrob Takeshi Kaneshiro and Chinese actress Tang Wei have begun work on director Peter Chan's new film, a martial arts movie titled "Wu Xia" in Yunnan, China, reported Chinese media.
"Wu Xia" revolves around a highly skilled swordsman named Liu Jin Xi (Yen), who is forced by circumstances to hide out in a remote village for many years. Tang will play Liu's wife.
The constable Xu Bai Jiu (Kaneshiro) is extremely curious about Liu, and unwittingly brings down a whole heap of trouble for the protagonist as the film progresses.
When asked about his new film, Chan, the long-time boyfriend of Hong Kong actress Sandra Ng, seemed very excited.
"Ever since 'Courching Tiger and Hidden Dragon', there have been no great 'wu xia' (martial arts chivalry) films for almost a decade, so I wanted to try [making one].
"I want to combine action, science, medicine and special effects to show just how strong 'wu xia' moves are, to show how different the effect of one strike is on the body of a person who has trained in the martial arts and someone who has not," Chan told reporters.
Kaneshiro appeared more muscular than before during the film's commencing ceremony which was held this month, lending credence to rumours that he and Yen will have a large number of fight scenes in the film.
