Hot off of China’s latest theatrical release of martial arts actiom drama Man Of Tai Chi, director Keanu Reeves and lead actor Tiger Chen have been touring their new film in several interviews and public appearances, as well as releasing extensive behind-the-scenes featurettes, and even a music video for the title song, Remember Me, sung by none other than Tiger himself. In addition, Reeves and his kung fu lead actor are now featured in a new sidestory shortfilm from Volkswagen Group called Extreme Pursuit, which stars Tian Yuen, Lam Suet, Tang Zeng, Jing Boran and Niu Qingfeng, and is directed by Liu Guonan with stunt coordination by Bruce Law.
The story appears to loosely tie into Reeves’ film, with both featuring the actor/director his reprising his role as Donaka, or in this case, “Mr. D.”, as he is pursued by four friends infiltrating his organization to retrieve a set of stolen diamonds, as well as exact their own revenge against him. And not for nothing either, as the release of the new shortfilm also grants the German automaker a popular vehicle for their new promotional push
to showcase their latest line-up of luxury cars, illustrating their sleek design and agility as the chase begins in the third act.
The short film is a little over sixteen minutes long, so feel free to take a look if you have time, and be sure to subscribe to Keanu’s blog and Youtube channel.
