- MAN OF TAI CHI
Iko Uwais – the ass-kicking star of The Raid – has landed his highest profile gig yet: a role in Keanu Reeves’ directorial debut.
Uwais will appear in Man of Tai Chi, an action drama in which Reeves will also star.
According to Variety, the film will be set in modern Beijing and follow the spiritual journey of a young martial artist (Tiger Chen) whose skills present him with both exciting opportunities and painful choices.
Chen will fight Uwais in one of the climactic brawls.
Man From Tai Chi will shoot in Beijing, Hong Kong and Macau and is set to hit screens next year.
