Here’s your first look (as far as I know) of Jet Li playing the Monkey King in the upcoming martial arts movie “The Forbidden Kingdom”. The Monkey King is one of two roles that Li will be playing; his other role is the Silent Monk (seen already in the white robes). But this is, I believe, the first time Li is visible, all hairy and what not (thumb to your left, bigger image below), but I could be wrong.
A discovery made by a kung fu obsessed American teen sends him on an adventure to China, where he joins up with a band of martial arts warriors in order to free the imprisoned Monkey King.
