Donnie Yen's new movie begins filming

24 Dec – "Ip Man" actor Donnie Yen has finally begin filming for his latest action movie, "The Iceman Cometh 3D" in Hong Kong.

Popular Asians reported that after the initial rumours that the movie will not be realised at all, producer Wong Kin Sun and director Law Wing Cheong were able to get the production going.

It was also revealed that the HKD 200 million-budgeted movie utilizes the same filming technology as Hollywood's "The Hobbit" and "The Amazing Spider-man", with the 3D cameras dubbed as the most expensive piece of equipment ever used in movies.

Scheduled for a mid or late 2013 release, "The Iceman Cometh 3D" is a remake of Yuen Biao's movie "The Iceman Cometh" (1989). Donnie plays an imperial guard from the Ming Dynasty who is caught in an avalanche and buried for centuries with his rival (played by Wang Baoqiang) until he was discovered several decades later. While their bodies are being shipped to Hong Kong for further analysis, they are accidentally revived, and their rivalry continues.

The movie also stars Simon Yam, Eva Huang, Mark Wu, Ava Yu, Shi Yongli, and Jacqueline Chong.
