"Peter Chan to Shoot a Remake of "One Armed Swordsman"

Renowned Hong Kong director Peter Chan will start shooting a remake of the 1969 classic "One Armed Swordsman" directed by Chinese director Zhang Che in August, M1905.com reports.

Chan got the idea from the film "One Armed Swordsman," but he decided to create a new story which is more bloody and cruel.

Hong Kong actor Donnie Yen and Japanese-Chinese actor Jing Chengwu will star in the film. Yen will play a cruel killer who has become a fugitive. But he undergoes a transformation after he is captured by Jing Chengwu, who played a similar role in Director Zhang Yimou's film "House of Flying Daggers."

The film is the first time Yen and Jing have cooperated on a movie project, and they are excited about the challenges it offers. Yen is also the film's choreographer. Jing may have to undergo fighting training before the shooting begins.
