Donnie Yen is Coming to Hollywood

Yes, we all know that Donnie Yen has been in a few Hollywood movies before, like Blade II and Shanghai Knights but now Yen is finally getting his first starring role in his English language debut entitled Priority Run. It’s to be directed by Troy Nixey who directed Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark.

Synopsis: Set to star fast rising action star Donnie Yen in his first English language movie, PRIORITY RUN takes us on highway to hell ride guarding the worst of the worst convicts as they’re transported to a maximum security facility. But when the prison transport bus is ambushed on a remote stretch of highway by a sinister organization that appears intent on killing them all  for some mysterious motive, the guards face a nightmare dilemma — release the most vicious criminals in the state or allow them to be slaughtered. Outnumbered and outgunned, its the most dangerous convict of them all with whom the guards must forge a precarious alliance with if they have any chance of surviving.


I love this story; it sounds almost like a sequel to Con Air… except with more martial arts and less mullets. No word on an official release date, but watch this space and we’ll let you know when more details emerge.
