As much as I’ve grown to appreciate Louis Fan over the years, I’ll stand by any director who chooses to put him front and center on a film project. This week, that nod goes to Yin Chenyang whose latest venture, Special Mission, sticks him right on the front lines in leading man fashion with a number of fresh faces Xu Jiawen, Yang Ming, Si Ligeng and Guo Zhen.
While there’s no plot info I can instantly delve into here, at the very least there’s a trailer for all of us to take a gander at. It’s coming to Youku this Friday as well and that’s all I have – that, and all the more hope that we get to see more of Fan in starring roles as talented and proficient as he is, particularly seeing as he’s up to co-star in Matthieu Weschler’s Attrition in an English-speaking role.
Peep the trailer below!
