He's BACK!

Jet Li to Show Tai-Chi, but Not with Feng Xiaogang
    2011-02-22 16:03:27     CRIENGLISH.com       Web Editor: Xie Tingting



Jet Li has been confirmed to focus his new movie on the Chinese martial arts of Tai-Chi, but Feng Xiaogang won't be the director.

Production company Huayi Brothers announced the film on Monday, February 21, 2011. With the working title, "Tai-Chi", the film will star Jet Li as a legendary Tai-Chi master.

Li built one of his most successful roles with his portrayal of Tai-Chi master Zhang Sanfeng in Yuen Woo-Ping's 1993 film "Tai-Chi Master" ("Taiji Zhang Sanfeng"). Huayi Brothers didn't elaborate on Li's new character, but said it won't reprise Zhang Sanfeng.

Jet Li will be the executive producer of the film with Chen Kuo-Fu.

The kung-fu star has been dedicated to promoting Tai-Chi. He announced in August, 2010 that he was working to help Tai-Chi push-hands (a two-person training routine) become an official Olympic sport.

As for the director of "Tai-Chi", Huayi Brothers didn't announce a specific candidate, but denied previous rumors that Feng Xiaogang would direct the film.

Feng, who made such bankable films as "Aftershock" and the "If You Are the One" series, is preparing for his own project that "will involve heavy investment," according to Huayi Brothers.

Previous reports suggest Feng's upcoming film will be about the bombing of Chongqing, a five-year-long military operation conducted by the invading Japanese troops on China's wartime capital during WWII.

It's interesting how Jet Li moved from doing some traditional Chinese martial arts stuff with comedy to completely serious films like Warlords.

For me Fearless and Warlords are obvious highlights of his career.

Fearless provided an opportunity for Western and Chinese weapon techniques to come together in the fights, which I'm sure many martial arts fans had been waiting for. The straight sword fencing one was especially cool.

Warlords, on the other hand, was one of the few films starring Li that had less individual martial arts action with a historical background. I liked it because of it's loyalty to history (the Ching dynasty and Taiping Rebellion) and the engaging plot. Although Li's character wasn't particularly likeable, you kind of begin to understand why he acts like he does and you see what happens when a military man rules with an iron will on his soldiers. Also, according to the production staff the film was meant to be anti-war, and we can see that in the scenes involving the siege of the city halfway through the movie.

So yeah Jet Li's been a really wonderful addition to Chinese cinema in the past 2 decades or so.

Jet Li Promotes 3-D 'Flying Swords'    
2011-05-24 11:01:01     CRIENGLISH.com       Web Editor: Xie Tingting

Jet Li is now returning to his kung-fu roots in the first-ever Chinese 3-D kung-fu film, "The Flying Swords of Dragon Gate".





Li says shooting the movie has been exciting for him.

"I have been shooting movies for over 30 years but I have never acted in a 3-D movie. I don't know if I can still play kung fu if director Tsui Hark asks me to act in a 3-D kung-fu movie ten years later, so I am lucky to have this opportunity and I am happy to join Tsui for this movie."

Being the first-ever Chinese 3-D kung-fu film, "The Flying Swords of Dragon Gate" is inspired by the 1992 martial-arts film "Dragon Inn", which revolves around a face-off between an imperial agent and warrior couple in a desert inn.

Director Tsui Hark says he believes the 3-D technology adds a lot to his story-telling.

"The visual effect is an important part of story-telling for a movie, so the 3-D technology brings us more power to tell the stories, and this is totally different from two-dimensional era."

The 35-million-dollar production is slated to hit movie theaters later this year.

eta:



The kung-fu film "Tai Chi" has released its first concept poster at the 64th Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France.


 
The poster shows a giant steel monster in the middle. Opposite it, a child in red dress plays tai chi with unruffled calm.

On top of the poster, there is a line inscribed: "A new trilogy from the creator of 'Detective Dee'", which officially confirms the film will be a trilogy.

The film will be directed by Stephen Fung, and features kung-fu megastar, Jet Li.

Filming will start in June for a 2012 release.

Jet Li Plays Sorcerer in 'White Snake'    
2011-07-01 14:14:21     CRIENGLISH.com       Web Editor: Xie Tingting

 What will Jet Li look like as the scrupulous monk Fahai in the Chinese Legend of the White Snake?



What will Jet Li look like as the scrupulous monk Fahai in the Chinese Legend of the White Snake?

A still photo has been released to give audiences a glimpse of him in the new film, "The Sorcerer and the White Snake". The picture shows Li donning a white gown, with prayer beads around his neck and in his hand. He is accompanied by actor Wen Zhang, who plays Fahai's disciple, Nengren.

This is the second cooperation between Jet Li and Wen Zhang, after they portrayed a touching father-son relationship in last year's film, "Ocean Heaven".

"The Sorcerer and the White Snake" is inspired by the Legend of the White Snake which praises a brave love between the snake spirit, Bai Suzhen, and her human husband, Xu Xian.

The sorcerer Fahai is portrayed in the tale as a monk who believes every demon is evil. His belief leads him to destroy the family of Bai Suzhen and Xu Xian.

In the film, Huang Shengyi plays the white snake, while Raymond Lam plays Xu Xian.

Charlene Choi plays the green snake, the white snake's confidante.

Other stills highlight the romance between the green snake and Nengren, whose body constantly changes between devil and human.

"The Sorcerer and the White Snake" is directed by Ching Siu-tung, who is known as the action choreographer for Zhang Yimou's "Hero" and "Curse of the Golden Flower".

"White Snake" is currently in its post-production stages, with a release scheduled for the end of this year.

Jet Li as Fahai fights from the beginning to the end



The Ching Siu Tung directed film THE SORCERER AND THE WHITE SNAKE (BAK SEH CHUEN SHUET JI FAT HOI) earlier held a trailer release and a distribution contract signing in Beijing. Actors Jet Li (Lee Nin Kit), Eva Huang Shengyi attended. Lee Nin Kit said that he fought the most viciously in the recent decade in this film. Playing Fahai, Lee Nin Kit was a public enemy of demons and absolutely fought from the beginning to the end. Ching Siu Tung pointed out that Lee Nin Kit's role was heavy and had many action scenes, so it was particularly tough. Lee also provided many ideas on the script. He praised Lee Nin Kit for his loyalty.

The film's first trailer was unveiled at the event. The giant white snake also appeared for the first time. Lee Nin Kit battled a variety of demons and White and Green Snake. The film had over 1,500 shots and 1,400 of which had special effects, the high special effect ratio in Chinese film history. the film also invited KUNG FU HUSTLE's Hong Kong Film Award Best Editing winner Angie Lam On Yi to supervise the post production. Distributor Bona film group chief Yu Dong was extremely confident in THE SORCERER AND THE WHITE SNAKE, which will be released during the National Day slot.

Big PIMPING Jet!

Ching Siu Tung Brings Jet Li in Venice appearance 




THE SORCERER AND THE WHITE SNAKE (BAK SHEH CHUEN SHUET) held its global premiere on September 3 at the Venice Film Festival. Executive producer Yang Zi, director Ching Siu Tung, stars Jet Li (Lee Nin Kit), Eva Huang Shengyi and Charlene Choi Cheuk Yin attended. With his first appearance at an international film festival, Lee Nin Kit attracted many overseas fans. After the press conference, many foreign media lined up for this kung fu emperor's autograph.

Director Ching Siu Tung honestly said that the audience of the entire world would be able to understand THE SORCERER AND THE WHITE SNAKE. "This is a Chinese folk story that also has a lot of special effects and action." With his years of action film experience, "overseas sickness" would not appear overseas. He even revealed that the international version was half a hour shorter so the story could focus more on the White Snake, Hui Sin, Green Snake, Nung Yung, and Fahai. In the September 29 Asian release, Hui Sin's marriage proposal would be added and some existing animal characters would become human in the form of guest stars like Jiang Wu, Miriam Yeung Chin Wa, Chapman To Man Jat, Sonija Kwok Sin Nei and others to add to the story's entertainment value. Ching Siu Tung participated in his first Venice Film Festival and did not only enjoy the Water city's scenery and the Mediterranean cuisine, but also more direct understanding of European film festivals. He thought that the Venice Film Festival paid a lot of attention to the film genre during its film selection.
