Donnie Yen to Play ‘Noodle Man’

Donnie Yen is arguably the greatest martial arts star in the world today and he’s one of the hardest working men in the industry too with multiple movies out every year.

We’ve often wondered if he would ever return to Hollywood and the answer is a resounding YES!

According to The Hollywood Reporter “Yen will star in Noodle Man where he will play an ex-cop from China who has all but given up on himself after a botched mission 15 years earlier killed his partner. He finds a new lease on life when the Chinese drug lord responsible walks into his noodle shop in New York’s Chinatown.

Daming Chen, who directed the Chinese version of What Women Want, is helming the project, which will be a U.S.-China co-production. CAA is packaging.

“What we are doing here is not only very unique, but will hopefully serve as the model of merging the best from East and West,” said Yen. “(Michael) understands the changing climate of the business and is very progressive in his approach.”

“Donnie’s wonderful blend of acting talent and martial arts makes him a unique star,” said Shamberg, who added he hoped to make a movie with global appeal.

Yen just wrapped Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend, the hot-button movie which will be simultaneously released next summer in theaters and via Netflix. The English-language sequel also stars Michelle Yeoh“.

A new Donnie Yen movie is always an event for me so I can’t wait to see this.

I grew up watching JCVD, Sly and Arnold destroy bad guys, blow things up and spew one-liners like it's a fashion statement. Action is everything I go to the movies for and the reason I came up with this site is to share my love for the genre with everyone. We also want to help promote new talent whether you're making blockbusters, low-budget Indie movies or fan films; if it's action, it's awesome.
