Donnie Yen coming to Singapore for “Wu Xia”
SINGAPORE: Fans of Hong Kong action star Donnie Yen will get to see him in the flesh on July 19, when he comes to Singapore to promote his latest film “Wu Xia”.
The “Ip Man” star will be attending the film’s gala premiere at Golden Village Vivocity at 8.00pm with “Wu Xia” director Peter Chan, during their whirlwind stopover in Singapore, before jetting off to Taiwan the next day.
“Wu Xia” cost US$20 million (S$24.9 million) to produce.
It tells the tale of Detective Xu Bai-jiu (Takeshi Kaneshiro), who tries to unravel the mystery of how an unassuming paper maker Liu Jin-xi (Donnie Yen) managed to slay the outlaw Yan Dong Sheng.
His investigations inadvertently put Liu and his wife Ah Yu (Tang Wei) on a collision course with the leader (60s martial arts star Jimmy Wang) of the 72 Demons, a clan of vicious killers.
