I think it’s safe to say that Donnie Yen is gonna crowd a LOT of fanboys this week. He’s got numerous projects simmering and brewing in production or development and director Kam Kar-Wai’s latest, Big Brother, will certainly be one of them upon its release.
Hong Kong’s Mega-Vision Project Workshop announced the film at Filmart on Monday with Yen starring as Chan, a high school teacher who must apply his unconventional methods to get through his students, as well as face the unsavory past that haunts him. Yen is joined by Jess Liaudin who plays the menacing taxi driver in Julien Seri’s Night Fare next to Boyka: Undisputed villain Brahim Acchabkhe, as well as Craig Miller of The Brothers Grimsby fame and Tanigaki Kenji serving up the fight action with a release currently pending.
Much focus on the narrative will be on the educational aspects and backdrop overall as Yen has promised in interviews and posts prior. That said, you can still bet this will be a solid sell to the fanbase as folks now get to sample in the first teaser below. Peep it!
