Said titles bring actor and martial artist Max Zhang front and center for and even bigger spotlight with news on the acquisition of The Invisible Dragon and Cheung Tin-Chi, the latter which commences filming this summer.
Hailing from director Fruit Chan for a 2018 release, The Invincible Dragon casts Zhang opposite Anderson Silva in the story of a detective who, in the wake of a spate of homicides under investigation by his team, sets out to find his fianceé’s kidnapper. Also starring are Stephy Tang, Kevin Cheng and JuJu Chan; Cheung Tin-Chi still awaits production but has Zhang lined-up to reprise the title role as seen in the Donnie Yen-starring 2016 hit, Ip Man 3, and will be joined by the likes of Dave Bautista (Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2), Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 2: Sword Of Destiny) and Tony Jaa (xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage).
