It will be a while before Hong Kong Cinema fans will get the pleasure of watching action star Collin Chou (The Matrix 2 & 3, The Forbidden Kingdom) in the latest and long-awaited Donnie Yen action headliner, Special Identity, and hopefully a slightly shorter wait with the impending release of Badges Of Fury with Jet Li. Until then, fans are just days away from the release of Well Go’s latest import from writer/producer/directors Gordon Chan (Fist Of Legend) and Janet Chun, The Four, where Chou is also joined by Deng Chao, Ronald Cheng, Crystal Liu and Anthony Wong. The film was also produced by Abe Kwong, as well as written for the screen by Maria Wong and Frankie Tam, based on a series of novels by Wen Ruian.
The news comes long after the film’s domestic release earned over 100 million yuan, signifying the film as a box office success to initiate the film as the start of a trilogy, with the second film currently in post production. The film is slated for home release on April 9.
Gangs of spies. A royal secret service. A covert governing organization. A divine constabulary. Everyone wants to know about a stolen coin cast and a mysterious circulation of counterfeit currency. Every government agency and financial interest in the region has an interest and a plan. But this scam is only the beginning of their problems.
Something supernatural is happening. Someone is forming an army of the undead, created to crush anything that stands in their way, making their way to the capital.
Coldblood. Iron Hands. Emotionless. Life Snatcher.
They are kung fu superheroes. They are THE FOUR.
And they may be our only chance.
Based on the greatly-loved novel The Four Detective Guards by Wen Ruian, Gordon Chan’s (THE KING OF FIGHTERS, PAINTED SKIN, THE KUNG FU MASTER) film adaptation is the first for the big screen, and the beginning of a planned trilogy.
