Before you guys get too worried about another Ip Man-related film, relax. It’s just another movie about a female superhero in a leather costume. Oh, and it’s in 3D as well! That didn’t help, did it?
Chrissie Chau is starring in Bauhinia Heroine. I literally know nothing about the movie, but I can assume that the poster shows us pretty much everything we can expect from a movie like this. Now, before everyone thinks I’m bashing the movie already, I’m not. It’s respectable that she’s training with a 3rd generation disciple of Ip Man’s to prepare for her role.
I’ve found a source that says the film is direct by Stephen Shiu, but I can’t find a director by that name. I’ve found a producer that goes by that name, and he’s produced a wide range of films. When I mean wide range, I mean he’s produced 3D Sex and Zen as well as the Iceman Cometh.Granted, it could be his debut film, but the potential of 3D kinda worries me.
To be honest, I don’t really know what to expect from this film, and I’ll keep it that way. I’ll save all my judgement for when I see a trailer, and not before that. Honestly speaking, this movie will either be decent or a complete flop. Let’s hope for decent.
Bauhinia Heroine won’t be out til 2013, so there’s still plenty of time to speculate…or make it better.
