Mixed martial arts star, Anderson Silva (aka The Spider) has become an unlikely addition to the cast of director Fruit Chan’s new action thriller ‘Made in Kowloon’.
Headlined by rising action star Max Zhang (‘Ip Man 3’), the film follows a Hong Kong police officer who crosses over to Macao after his fiancée goes missing and accidentally stumbles onto a series of murder cases. Chan says that “the story is imbued with some Chinese mythical elements, which will set it apart from the traditional Hong Kong cop thrillers”.
Other cast members include JuJu Chan, Stephy Tang, Kevin Cheng and Annie Liu. Stephen Tung Wai (‘Saving General Yang’) will be handling action choreography.
Update: The project has now been re-titled as ‘The Invincible Dragon‘.
