Yuen Woo Ping To Direct Zu Warriors: Dawn Of Darkness

Legendary Director Yuen Woo Ping is returning to the big screen with a new 3D fantasy movie titled Zu Warriors: Dawn Of Darkness. Tsui Hark is once again bringing back the 80’s classic and he is also producing the movie with a $35 million budget to play with.

The movie is set to start filming around July/August time in Beijing, if you have seen the original starring Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao, then you will know what to expect but this time with better effects. Tsui is using the same 3D technology as he did in Flying Swords Of Dragon Gate (Jet Li), so depending on the actors who will be involved, this could either be a hit or miss.
