Cine Asia acquires Benny Chan's CALL OF HEROES
26 July 2016
Marking Cine Asia’s first release since 2012, we are delighted to announce the upcoming release of Call of Heroes, the latest feature from director Benny Chan (SHAOLIN, NEW POLICE STORY).
CALL OF HEROES brings together much of Hong Kong’s elite film industry talent. In addition to Benny Chan, fan favourite Sammo Hung acts as action director, and together they oversee a cast of both HK cinema veterans and rising stars. Cast includes Louis Koo (Flash Point), Wu Jing (Kill Zone 1 & 2), Sean Lau (Mad Detective) and Eddie Peng (Rise Of The Legend).
The story of CALL OF HEROES takes place within the early Republic of China, in a time of turmoil due to incessant civil wars. Amidst the unrest, a warlord’s ruthless son is arrested in a remote village that he had hoped to conquer. It is not before long that an army belonging to the warlord threatens to attack the village, and the village’s skilled guardians must stand their ground to protect their homeland.
CALL OF HEROES will be released in UK cinemas on 2 September 2016. Check back here for theatrical venues as they are confirmed.
