After a successful run in Asian cinemas, Donnie Yen’s first directorial effort in over twenty years is readying to come to North America. The film is a Wuxia epic titied Sakra and it also stars Yen in the title role featuring his signature jaw dropping fight choreography.
Well Go USA, who has put out numerous films by Yen including the Ip Man films, has now acquired the action star’s latest endeavor and is planning on releasing the movie in select theaters this spring.
Sakra is Yen’s first foray into the period martial arts genre after sating goodbye to doing Kung Fu films with the last Ip Man movie. With veteran fight expert Kenji Tanigaki at the helm for the film’s numerous battle sequences along with Yen’s Action Team, genre fans can expect plenty of gravity defying action with Yen leading the way.
The movie takes its plot from the classic wuxia novel Demi-Gods And Semi-Devils which was penned by Louis Cha (who is known worldwide by his pen name Jin Yong) so audiences can also expect a heavy dose of cinematic drama to go along with the adrenaline rush.
