Jet Li to show Tai-Chi, but not with Feng Xiaogang
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.
