Update: Not to overshadow Donnie “The Man” Yen but we have another new one sheet featuring Raging Fire’s antagonist Nicholas Tse who is armed and deadly! Peek at it below!
Original Post: In the realm of modern day action cinema, and the golden age for that matter, Donnie Yen is a god among men. The action and martial arts icon is still dishing out the punishment to this day and his Ip Man 4 is poised and ready to unleash its awesomeness to the masses soon.
I got a new update for you on another of Yen’s projects titled RAGING FIRE which teams him with Director Benny Chan and reunites him with his DRAGON TIGER GATE co-star Nicholas Tse. The film has issued a new one sheet which highlights Yen’s character of Shan who is a righteous cop who must tangle with a former protege who has gone rogue. Check it out below!
There is also a formal synopsis for the film which states:
“Shan, a righteous cop who is admired by the police force to have solved many cases. One day, his past comes back to haunt him when his sting operation is attacked by a mysterious group of criminals led by Ngo (Nicholas Tse), his former protégé. Ngo was once a talented cop who admired and respected Shan. However, a terrible accident sent him to prison three years ago turning him into a furious man with the aim to kill everyone who wronged him – including his former mentor!”
The info comes courtesy of the awesome fellows over at Martial Arts Action Cinema who also shared some great BTS pics as well which you can see below!
Along with RAGING FIRE AND IP MAN 4, Donnie also will be seen in next year’s highly anticipated live action remake of Disney’s MULAN as well as THE FAT DRAGON. Yen is also still attached to star in SLEEPING DOGS which is based on the hit video game.
Release date and trailer are pending for this one but you can bet I’ll share as soon as they hit so keep it locked and loaded right here for more Donnie Yen 411!
