First Poster For Cop Thriller BADGES OF FURY Has Jet Li Packing Heat

Hot on the heels of the European Film Market, the first promotional art for the cop actioner Badges of Fury (aka The One Detective) has debuted via Easternlight Films, featuring an explosive Jet Li standing tall and gun ready.  The cop standing beside Li is Wen Zhang who previously appeared with the action star in Ocean Heaven and The Sorcerer and the White Snake.

The film is directed by Wang Zi Ming and produced by Po Chu Chui of Kung Fu Hustle and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon fame. With Wu Jing (SPL) and Collin Chou (The Matrix Reloaded, Flashpoint) also onboard in the cast line-up and Corey Yuen (Shaolin) serving as fight choreographer, martial arts fans will surely not be disappointed for the lack of quality fisticuffs.  

When a spate of eerie murders erupts across Hong Kong two troublemaking cops are assigned to the case. Young maverick WANG and grizzled vet HUANG who is fed up with his reckless younger partner always landing them in hot water. Reaching a dead end after discovering all the victims were former boyfriends of aspiring starlet LIU, the detectives must play a deadly game. One of them must go undercover as Liu's lover to lure the killer out.
The film is currently in post production and its scheduled for theatrical release in China in June.

  • Qinlong

    June is in a looong time... The Li-Yuen-Chou-Wu line-up will only be rivalled by the Yen-Chou-Zhang-On line-up of Special Identity

  • DooK

    More like Yen-Chou-On-(Ken)Lo-Zhang line-up =P

    Anyway, having revisited Jet's classics I'm glad he's returning to contemporary action movies. Corey Yuen better not screw up the fight choreography like last time (Wu Dang).

  • Al Young

    Seeing how Corey Yuen has been Jet Li's go-to-guy for fight choreography for many years, turning up some great Hong Kong modern output such as High Risk, My Father is a Hero and The Bodyguard from Beijing, plus having the caliber of talents involved to work with, I'm willing to bet this have the potential to kick-ass. As long as he doesn't go over board with the wire-work and only use it when its justified.
