Director Clarence Fok‘s upcoming film, Special ID continues to generate buzz with the release of two new behind-the-scenes clips this week. The first clip is an extended version of a BTS reel that fellow stunt coordinator Kenji Tanigaki featured on his own YouTube channel last week. The second clip shows Yen in a two minute reel that includes small interview subsections between BTS shots with fellow cast and crew, including actors Ken Lo and Andy On, and a little bit of footage of Yen’s previous 2005 Hong Kong hit MMA cop thriller, S.P.L. (Sha Po Lang a.k.a. Kill Zone), and its hit follow-up, Flash Point.
All of this comes as Yen recently revealed his hopes to turn Special ID into its own film franchise with more films in the years ahead. It has also been reported that Yen will be starring in the tentatively titled, S.P.L. 2, the newly announced sequel to S.P.L..
The official release date for Special ID has reportedly been pushed back to a new date set on October 18, 2013.
