This will come as no surprise to anyone but according to THR Well Go USA has picked up North American distribution rights for Donnie Yen’s latest actioner Big Brother.
Donnie Yen stars in the film as a seasoned former soldier recruited for his toughest mission yet – teaching a class of teen delinquents. As he kicks his way into both their school and home lives, it becomes clear that his unconventional teaching style might be just what they need. At the same time, he has to deal with a greedy entrepreneur and his gang of fighters as well as the government.
The indie action and genre distributor will release the film nationwide on Aug. 31, one week after its wide release in China. The company plans a digital release later in the year.
