I’ve slowly become more and more interested in Man of Tai Chi. From the initial development stages, to the cast and camera rig, it looks like Keanu Reeves is taking all of the right steps. Now, it’s been announced that Iko Uwais is working on the film as well.
I’m not sure how big of a role Uwais will play, but it honestly doesn’t matter. He will have even more appeal to both the US and HK audience, and that’s never a bad thing. I cannot wait to see how they use Uwais in a fight, and the combination of action with the camera rig is going to be insane. Plus, can you imagine Yuen Woo Ping’s choreography with Iko?
Needless to say, I’ve got high hopes for this one.
