Yuen Wo Ping to Direct Action Trilogy VIGILANTES
News out of AFM reveals that legendary martial arts choreographer and filmmaker Yuen Wo Ping is teaming up with Dragon Star Pictures to direct the first of a planned trilogy of action thrillers, entitled Vigilantes - The Lost Order. The Canadian-Chinese co-production, from Dragon Star and Yuen's own Film Can Production, is scheduled to begin production next year, and is being touted as The Matrix meets Wall Street.
Vigilantes - The Lost Order is a contemporary-set English language martial arts extravangza that follows Tess, a kick-ass heroine on a mission of vengeance. Orphaned as a young girl by a murderous secret hit squad, Tess grows up to become an assassin who goes searching for those responsible, only to uncover a global financial conspiracy.
