EXCLUSIVE: Who best to start a new IP for Neal Moritz’s Original Film (Fast and Furious) than the IP Man himself? Martial artist Donnie Yen is set to star in a new feature from Moritz entitle…
i really like donnie yen but i hope they have him set to play the role of wei. that role should go to a younger guy in my opinion.
lol seems like that's what hollywood seems to be like doing (DragonBall, Ghost in the shell)
Donnie Yen has the star power to be the main and the looks/energy...if you get some young unknown asian guy...who would really take notice of the movie...
Checkout Flash point and Special id
obviously not a white guy. that makes no sense. i'm not saying i can think of anyone off the top of my head but i feel like if they're going to go with wei chen as the main character, then he should be in his late 20s early 30s.
A Caucasian?!? Wut? Why do we feel the need to turn this into a race thing?! @_@ When clearly it wasn't.
Not turning into a race thing...that wasn't my intention anyway but Hollywood does cast some weird actors/actress to play a part where it never meant to be lol
I understand but an unknown asian guy (in hollywood) without the star power is abit difficult :)
anyway Donnie Yen looks in his early 30s
you think so? i feel like he looks to be in his 40s. lol
Maybe I love Donnie Yen and blinded :P
I think he'd be great. i really do. my criticism wasn't even really a critique as it was just a personal observation/preference.
I can see what you're saying but I'm willing to look past it. I think Donnie has the charisma and charm to really elevate the role in a way few other Asian actors in Hollywood can. Coupled with the aforementioned star power and this could be a hit!
what about Will Yun Lee - he was in The Wolverine and I think he looks the part quite nicely.
Will Yun Lee would be an excellent choice! Sadly Hollywood would never cast him in a role like this, he's far too unknown! ;_; To be completely honest I'm surprised we're getting Donnie Yen at all lol.
