Earlier this month, a poster (above) started circulating for director Tsui Hark‘s latest 3D period actioner, The Taking Of Tiger Mountain. This month, the film is finally on its way to the marche du Cannes courtesy of Distribution Workshop after reportedly wrapping a five-month location shoot last week in Northern China in -30°C (-22°F) weather.
As such, we also have another promotional photo for the film now viral which you can check out below.
Set for a possible Holiday release later this year, the film is based on late author Qu Bo’s first book, the 1957 novel publication titled Tracks In The Snowy Mountain, which centers on the true story of Yang Ziron, a communist soldier who infiltrates a gang of bandits. The principle cast includes Zhang Hanyu, Zhou Dongyu, Gao Hu, Tong Liya, Kenny Lin and actor Han Geng making his film debut.
The Taking Of Tiger Mountain is also one in a small handful of films being presented by Distribution Workshop at Cannes this month with the other being director Derek Yee‘s upcoming 3D Shaw remake, The Sword Master, which also just started production. As previously reported, Hark is producing with Lin starring as the lead.
Both films are produced by Bona Film Group.
