Fan favorite martial artist/actor Scott Adkins (Undisputed III, The Expendables 2) is currently in China filming a new 3D action movie titled A Legend. The movie is actually a British and Chinese co-production, featuring talent from both countries. Adkins stars opposite Chinese actress Huang Yi, who recently turned heads in the lead role of The Woman Knight of Mirror Lake.
Despite the multi-national cast, Chinese Films reports that the dialogue is being recorded in English. The plot follows a tour group exploring China’s unique geographical formations. Scott Adkins and Huang Yi’s characters will fall in love over the course of the story, a fact that is underscored by these new stills featuring the actors oiled up and embracing one another.
Scott Adkins’ own website has more details on the film, describing it as a “95-minute action-packed adventure film shot in 3D.” Also look for an appearance by Adkins’ Expendables 2 co-star Dolph Lundgren. The film has been discussed in the West under the title Legendary: Tomb of the Dragon. Head on over to this fan website for a ton of pictures from the movie and opening ceremony. Stay tuned to Cityonfire.com for the trailer when it debuts.
Update: Check out the teaser trailer. The movie is finished and now known under the simplified title of Legendary. The film will be screened in 3D at Cannes this month (May 2013), before a Chinese theatrical release in August. Worldwide release dates are to be announced sometime down the road.
