Watch out all you US fans of the DonMeister, the Chinese press are all over reports that the Weinstein Bros have just purchased the North America rights to Donnie’s latest big budget action epic The Lost Bladesman - with a view to “bring 'Bladesman' into the mainstream theatres in America." One thing they don’t reveal is any word on a planned release date, but fingers crossed it wont long.
Synopsis: During the warring period of the three kingdoms, ancient China is in turmoil. To unify the country general CAO CAO, the real power behind the emperor, enlists the aid of the greatest warrior in the land Guan Yun Chang (Donnie Yen). However, Guan is a loyal friend of Cao’s enemy Liu Bei. To persuade the peerless warrior to fight, Cao takes his beloved Qi Lan hostage. After leading Cao Cao's forces to victory Guan Yun Chang sets out with Qi Lan to rejoin Liu Bei. But now Cao has deemed him too great a threat to live, and on the journey he must face all the forces at the emperor's command sent to destroy him.
