Donnie Yen says on-screen duel with Wang completes his wish of fighting leading kung fu stars
HONG KONG (AP) ' Donnie Yen says his on-screen duel with Jimmy Wang in the action thriller "Wu Xia" completes his dream of facing off against all of Chinese cinema's leading kung fu stars.
Yen's career has pitted him against Jackie Chan ("Shanghai Knights") and Jet Li ("Once Upon a Time in China II" and "Hero"). Now he can add the largely retired action star Wang to the list.
Yen told The Associated Press in an interview on Thursday that he is a fan of "The One-armed Swordsman," the 1967 film that catapulted Wang to fame. He said their matchup in the recently released "Wu Xia" fulfilled his wish of "working with everyone."
