Mainland martial arts practitioner Zhao Wenzhuo leads two younger kung fu stars in a new film called Wu Dang, a comedy about hunting for treasure to be released on July 6.
Zhao has been a kung fu star since his debut in 1995. An accomplished martial art practitioner and national contest champion, Zhao plays a master in Wu Dang, one of the two most influential kung fu schools in China. The other is Shao Lin.
Two younger kung fu stars, Louis Fan and Dennis To, support him in the film, which also stars mainland actress Yang Mi. The film contains Yang’s first fighting sequences seen on the big screen.
Zhao says he will take his children to see the film, which is family-friendly and “hilarious”.
