Keanu Reeves to Make Directorial Debut with Kung Fu Movie

Keanu Reeves have been talking for some time about directing and acting in a kung fu action film called Man of Tai Chi.  Apparently funding is now in place thanks to four production houses – Village Roadshow Pictures Asia, China Film Group, Wanda Media and Unviersal. Universal will handle distribution in the U.S.

As Reeves has previously said, the film would shoot in Beijing, Hong Kong and Macau with dialogue in Mandarin and English. Martial artist and actor Tiger Chen will co-star with Reeves when the movie begins filming in February. Chen worked on the stunts crew for The Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions.
 
While Reeves has been coy with details, he has said that he wanted to play the villain.
 
"There's 18 fights. We've timed it out. It's about 40 minutes of fighting. I want to make a good, solid kung fu movie. Good story, good plot – but let's get some good kung fu going!"
 
We've seen in the past that when Reeves fully commits himself to projects, they usually turn out well, and with this being a passion project of sorts, chances are this could be something worth checking out.
 
What do you think? Are you curious to see what kind of kung fu movie Keanu pieces together?
