Donnie Yen (甄子丹) has started filming his latest action movie, The Iceman Cometh 3D <3D冰封侠>, in Hong Kong this week.

Scheduled to release in 2013, the movie is a remake of Yuen Biao’s (元彪) 1989 movie The Iceman Cometh <急凍奇俠>. Donnie, who plays an imperial guard from the Ming Dynasty, and his rival, played by Wang Baoqiang (王宝强), are both caught in an avalanche and buried for centuries until being discovered. While the bodies are shipped on the way to Hong Kong for further analysis, the two are accidentally defrosted and revived, and they continue their rivalry in the modern era.

This action movie will have a comical side. After his character awakens from years of deep freeze, Donnie will be astonished and dumbfounded by modern technologies such as cars, guns, and high tech items. All of which will add amusing elements to the movie.

Explosive Scenes

Donnie revealed that there will be explosive action scenes, such as a James Bond like skiing while taking on the enemy and fighting the famous Hong Kong Special Duties Unit on the roof of the Hong Kong Police headquarters. Several of Hong Kong’s famous landmarks will be destroyed in the film.

With a budget of more than $200 million HKD, explosive action scenes and special effects galore are promised. Donnie’s style of martial arts will be further intensified by the 3D experience. In addition, he has spent numerous hours studying various weapons from the different time periods to take advantage of the filming technology.

Donnie also praised his costar, Wang Baoqiang, for his good martial arts skills. “His martial arts skills is better than all of my action choreographers,” Donnie said.

Eva Huang Gushes Over Donnie Yen

Produced by Wong Kin Sun (黄建新) and directed by Law Wing Cheong (羅永昌), The Iceman Cometh 3D’s cast also includes Simon Yam (任達華), Eva Huang (黄圣依), Mark Wu (胡耀辉), Ava Yu (雨侨), Shi Yongli (石永莉), and Jacquelin Chong (荘思敏).

This will be Eva Huang’s first time costarring with Donnie Yen.  After working with Jet Li (李连杰) in The Sorcerer and The White Snake <白蛇传说>, Eva is looking forward to working with talented actors such as Donnie Yen, Wang Baoqiang, and Simon Yimon; she hopes to learn and benefit from working with them. Eva said that Donnie is one of her favorite actors.

Eva will have many fighting scenes too, even more than she had in The Sorcerer and The White Snake. To make sure her scenes are perfect, Eva spent a great amount of time training and practicing her moves. Luckily she already received some lessons from Jet Li while filming her previous movie.

The Iceman Cometh 3D features the same filming technology behind The Hobbit and The Amazing Spiderman 3D. The cameras used for The Iceman Cometh 3D are said to be the most expensive 3D Cameras available. Eva jokingly said just the prices of the cameras alone raised her expectations for the final result. Although this will be Eva’s second 3D movie, the last one being Three Days and Three Nights <三日三夜>, she still finds it to be a fascinating filming experience.

    2. DooK says:

      I’m already getting tired of these 3D feasts but this sounds great! I’ve always wondered how Donnie would employ the 3D tech into his action choreography. Guess we’ll wait and see when this and The Monkey King are out in theaters.

    3. Little fishy says:

      Uh, I like Eva’s look as I think she’s really pretty, but her sense of fashion is wtf >_<? The hairstyle, the jacket, the hippy feather earring, the weird 3 different colour, it make her seem like a bird Dx'
