Photo Gallery for Donnie Yen's ICEMAN COMETH 3D

Donnie Yen is currently shooting his new film Iceman Cometh 3D, which is a remake of Yuen Biao and Yuen Wah's 1989 action flick. The story spans from China's Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644) to modern day Hong Kong. It is being shot in 3D and easily one of Donnie's most ambitious projects to date. 

The production has not been easy; however, as difficulties such as the failure to get government approval to film some scenes on Tsing Ma Bridge and challenges associated with shooting in 3D have led to a prolonged shoot and escalating production costs, with some reports saying the budget of the film has already doubled from what was initially planned. 

It appears that the part that is based in Hong Kong has finally been completed, and the production team has now moved to China's Baekdu Mountain (aka Changbai Mountain) to film the Ming Dynasty part, which will include some large scale action scenes in the snow fields. 

Movie stills and production photographs are being released during various stages of the film's production, and they have been compiled into one large photo gallery here for your viewing pleasure.

    Didn't Yuen Biao do a movie with this exact same title?

  • Tory

    Yeah, this is a remake. It even says so in the first sentence of the article...

  • Angfan

    Something about this movie is giving me a bad feeling. I'm getting a "Jackie Chan's The Myth" vibe from this and that was an embarrassing debacle with a couple of decent action scenes. I think Donnie has better taste than JC though (in the sense that JC likes extreme cheese & cares nothing for his dignity), so I still have hope. But I still want to see more on Special Identity! Where did it go?

  • DooK

    The implementation of 3D is the only thing I'm worried about. Otherwise, this project involves talent beside Donnie as lead actor and action director, such as Law Wing Cheong (director of the highly underrated Punished) and Simon Yam.

  • yep, same for me...

  • Hugo Ozman

    Thanks, Angfan. I read somewhere that Special Identity is now in post-production. So hopefully it won't be too long before we all get to see it.

  • hey, do u have the link for ur source ? thks

    So Wang Baqiang is in the Yuen Wah role ? While he's perfect for the demented side of the character, I would have preferred a more interesting match-up on a martial arts level. Yuen Wah will be a tough act to follow in both respects, though.
    You might add that Simon Yam and Eva Huang are also part of the cast, and this poster is obsolete, since Wu Chun isn't in it anymore.

  • DooK

    Wang Baqiang is a legit martial artist in real-life though and has trained shaolin kung fu for 6 years. That's why he was chosen to play the main villain, probably under Donnie's recommendation.

  • Hugo Ozman

    Thanks, Qinlong. Definitely agree with you that Yuen Wah is a tough act to follow. I just want to clarify with you: which poster are you referring to? I can't seem to find Wu Chun's picture or name in any of the images.

  • Qinlong

    I was referring to the poster that is just below the title of the article (not in the gallery) and that features Yen and Wu striking poses..

  • Hugo Ozman

    It looks like 2 Donnie Yens in the poster to me.

  • Qinlong

    haha you're probably right actually
