Kung Fu megastar Donnie yen as just recently starting filming the remake of the 1989 Yuen Biao movie “The Iceman Cometh” which will be shot in 3D.
The movie will see Donnie take on the role that Yuen Biao did so well in 1989, which also starred Maggie Cheung and Yuen Wah, but the cast for the latest movie will include Simon yam, Wang Baoqiang and Eva Huang. A few months back the director of the movie claimed Yuen Biao will make a surprise cameo and also fight Donnie yen, but nothing was mentioned about this in the last few weeks.
The budget for the movie is $150 million (US), so we should expect some big action sequences and great fight scenes and if the remake is anything like the original, then be ready for a great movie.
“The Iceman Cometh 3D” revolves around a Captain America-like character portrayed by Yen. The heroic role and his evil foe, played by Wang Baoqiang, lived during the Ming Dynasty. Both were frozen during a fight and were defrosted in modern times where they continue their battle.
The movie is scheduled for a 2013 release.
