Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen is an upcoming movie about a caped crime fighter who infiltrates the mob by day to learn about their secret workings and who they plan to assassinate.
Chen Zhen is shot seven years before the events of the movie take place. He was shot while trying to uncover the identity of the person responsible for killing his teacher. The film is mostly set during the 1920s. The mob is planning an alliance with the Japanese, and he must stop it. Oh, and he does crazy kung fu. Awesome.
Legend of the Fist is being directed by Wai-keung Lau, and it is a continuation of various previous stories. The last time we saw Chen Zhen was in Fist of Fury, which was a TV show that ended in 1995. The role of Chen Zhen was first made famous by Bruce Lee in the 1972 film Fist of Fury. So there’s more fisting. Uh…

Did you watch the trailer? That’s how I’d win a war.
Nothing. Unless you hate awesomeness.
Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen will be three parts awesome, one hundred parts winning, and eight parts thunder. IT WILL BRING THE THUNDER. I’m excited. That’s the exact formula for a great movie.
