After trying to save the world in the sci-fi thriller The Wandering Earth, action star Wu Jing is headed back into battle once again as it’s being reported that the international martial arts and action phenom has enlisted for a new war epic titled Jin Gang Chuan. Jing, of course, has hit international stardom with his Wolf Warrior films in which he took on both Scott Adkins and Frank Grillo respectively and this new war thriller looks like an epic period piece.
The new comes courtesy of Asian Film Strike who is reporting that the new war film was helmed by not one but three directors in Guan Hu (Dirt, Mr. Six), Lu Yang (Brotherhood of Blades, Colored Youth) and Frant Gwo who also worked with Jong on The Wandering Earth. The film also stars Deng Chao (Shadow, The Mermaid), Zhang Yi (Operation Red Sea) and Jang Du (The Captain).
AFS has supplied us with some character posters for Jin Gang Chuan which you can see below!
Jin Gang Chuan will hit China domestically on October 25th of this year so expect some first look footage dropping soon. In the meantime, watch Jing in action from Wolf Warrior 2 in the video player below!
