Love him or hate him as an actor, but Keanu Reeves has worked with some of the best directors in Hollywood during his career: Kathryn Bigelow (Point Break), The Wachowskis (The Matrix), Richard Linklater (A Scanner Darkly), Francis Ford Coppola (Dracula). Now Reeves is taking the next step in his career and making his own directorial debut with Man of Tai Chi, in which he stars as the film’s villain, a mysterious man who orchestrates fights to the death between talented competitors.
The real star of the film is Tiger Hu Chen, a stuntman-turned-lead actor who has worked on Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and the Matrix sequels. Some of the moves he manages to pull off in this film are totally insane, and though the plot looks like a mixture of Bloodsport and Mortal Kombat, it could still end up being a great martial arts movie. You don’t go to these things for their brilliant stories, after all; it’s all about the badass fight sequences, and it looks like Man of Tai Chi has plenty. There’s no release date set yet, but we’ll keep you posted as we find out more.
