KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 28 — Although Donnie Yen has a slew of projects this year, he is most excited about the upcoming release of his own company’s new movie, Big Brother (previously reported as Dai Si Hing).
As reported on Oriental Daily, the actor who also stars in the upcoming movie as a school teacher, shared that the main theme of the new film is not just about Mixed Martial Arts, but also the education system.
“Actually, I have always wanted to make a movie about education. I now have the ability to do it, so I want to make a subject that concerns the community,” he said.
Donnie said that he hopes the audience will be moved to discuss the subject of education after watching the movie.
As of now, the movie, directed by Kam Kar Wai (Colour of the Game) and co-stars great MMA talents like Jess Liaudin (Night Fare), Brahim Acchabkhe (Boyka: Undisputed IV), Craig Miller (The Brothers Grimsby), and Semiquaver Lafeta (Unbeatable), has just wrapped up production. — CinemaOnline
