Reeves also stars in the movie alongside Tiger Chen, his martial arts trainer from 'The Matrix'
The first trailer for Man Of Tai Chi – Keanu Reeves‘s debut film as director – has appeared online. Scroll down and click ‘play’ to watch it.
Reeves unveiled the trailer for his martial arts movie at the Beijing International Film Festival last week, so it comes complete with Chinese subtitles. Of course, there’s plenty of kung fu action squeezed in there too.
As well as directing, Reeves appears in the film alongside Tiger Chen, his martial arts trainer on The Matrix trilogy. Another The Matrix veteran, Yuen Woo-Ping, choreographed the action sequences for the movie.
Reeves directed from a script by rookie Irish screenwriter Michael G Cooney. The film is set in modern-day Beijing and follows the “spiritual journey” of a promising young martial artist played by Chen as he faces “both exciting opportunities and painful choices”.
At present, Man Of Tai Chi has no UK or US release date, but it’s expected to arrive in cinemas later this year.
