First Images & Poster from ‘Man of Tai Chi’ Directed by Keanu Reeves
Just last summer, Man of Tai Chi, the directorial debut from actor Keanu Reeves, revealed a cool behind the scenes video of some innovative camera techniques being used to capture the 18 fight scenes totaling around 40 minutes of the film’s running time. Reeves is back in action as the film’s villain, and now we have the first photos from the film featuring The Matrix star and also Tiger Hu Chen (a key member of the stunt team in the Wachowski directed sci-fi film) as the film’s hero. In addition, there’s a relatively cool teaser poster that feels like it could easily be for a Mortal Kombat film if the ying-yang was a dragon. Look!
Here’s the first photos and poster from Keanu Reeves’ Man of Tai Chi from Twitch:
Keanu Reeves (The Matrix, Speed) makes his directorial debut with Man of Tai Chi, written by Michael G. Cooney. Little is known about the plot, but stuntman Tiger Hu Chen takes the lead as a young martial artist in Beijing whose skill places him in position to take advantage of lucrative opportunities but also make great sacrifices. Reeves also plays the film’s villain alongside a cast that also features Karen Mok (So Close), Simon Yam (Ip Man) and Iko Uwais (The Raid), all with fight choreography from Yuen Woo Ping (The Matrix, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon). There’s no release date yet, so stay tuned for more information.
