Media Asia Announces Donnie Yen's First Super Hero Projects
Following the unveiling of Super Hero Films at HK Filmart last month, the joint production venture between Media Asia and Donnie Yen, the company has now announced their first two projects.
The Master is a martial arts drama set in the US in the 1970s, centring on a Hong Kong immigrant turned kung-fu school master who is targeted for revenge by a gun shop owner. The film will star Donnie Yen in the title role and is to be directed by Soi Cheang, whose previous work includes Motorway and Accident.
The second project, Dragon City, is to be directed by Derek Kwok (Gallants) and is again set during the 70s. Yen takes the lead, this time as a cop who leads a special task force assigned with battling crime and police corruption inside the now-demolished Kowloon Walled City.
Both films are currently in pre-production and are slated to shoot this year.
