Stephen Fung’s Sequel ‘Tai Chi Hero’ Picked Up By Well Go USA
Well Go USA Entertainment has brokered a deal for the sequel Tai Chi Hero, per Deadline. The pick-up of the Stephen Fung directed film comes with the studio’s expected success with the original ‘Tai Chi Zero’ that just debuted at both the Venice and Toronto film festivals that took place this fall.
Doris Pfardrescher, the President of Well Go USA Entertainment, has since issued a statement over the pick-up. “Based on the early success we’ve seen for ‘Tai Chi Zero’ out of Venice and Toronto, as well as the early box office success in China, we wanted to ensure Director Fung’s entire trilogy is brought to North American audiences. The response has been amazing — audiences are asking how soon they can see ‘Tai Chi Hero’ as soon as ‘Tai Chi Zero’ ends, and we wanted to honor that request by putting ‘Tai Chi Hero’ in theaters as quickly as possible.”
‘Tai Chi Hero’ is expected to be released in the U.S. and Canada in the early months of 2013. Tell us what you think Tai Chi fans? Plus check out Film Equals review of ‘Tai Chi Zero’, the original action movie starring actor Daniel Wu (Beginning of the Great Revival).
