Jet Li has officially signed on to star in a big epic 3D Kung Fu action film called Flying Swords of Dragon Gate! The film is being developed by Hing Kong director Tsui Hark, on a $35 million dollar production budget.
The story is based on Hark's 1992 martial arts film entitled Dragon Inn, which centers on a warrior couple battling with imperial agents in a desert inn. We don't know much more than that.
Li previously worked with Hark on the film Once Upon a Time in China. This new movie is set to be released in December of 2011.
It will be nice to see Li showing off his talent again in a nice big epic martial arts film.
