The Weinstein Company Finds Donnie Yen’s The Lost Bladesman

3 Comments

Stateside fans of Donnie Yen should be happy right now — the actor’s latest Chinese epic “The Lost Bladesman” has been acquired by The Weinstein Company for North American distribution. Hopefully TWC won’t do what they normally do with their Chinese acquisitions and sit on it for years before unleashing it in limited released and a big DVD dump shortly thereafter.

In the film, a tyrant forces the greatest warrior in the land (that would be Donnie Yen) to battle his greatest friend by holding the woman they both love hostage.

Also starring Andy On, Wen Jiang, Betty Sun, and Alex Fong. “The Lost Blademan”, which will open in Chinese theaters last this month, is directed by Felix Chong and Alan Mak, the guys behind the “Infernal Affairs” films.

No word on a Stateside release date yet. An English-subtitled trailer and a batch of images from the movie below to whet your appetite.

      In theatres they rarely do dubbs. But DVD will probably have both Chinese and English language tracks.

      Come ON TWC!! Don’t F*CK us on this!!

    They will. I expect to be watching this on on a foreign blu-ray release before this will ever play in the states.
