Excellent! Not sure how the 3D thing will pan out, but I am very curious to see how this goes!

Donnie Yen Suffers Cramps After “Bed” Scene in “The Iceman Cometh 3D”

Having to beat up ten black belts is nothing difficult for action star Donnie Yen (甄子丹), but when it comes to staying still for a “bed” scene, Donnie would rather take down another crowd of black belts.

New Hong Kong action film The Iceman Cometh 3D <3D冰封俠>, directed by Law Wing Cheong (羅永昌), commenced filming in Hong Kong last month. The $200 million HKD film is a remake of Yuen Biao’s (元彪) popular 1989 film The Iceman Cometh <急凍奇俠>, which was directed by Clarence Fok (霍耀良). Donnie, who also serves as the action choreographer for the remake, will star in the film alongside Wang Baoqiang (王宝强), Simon Yam (任達華), and Eva Huang (黄圣依).

The Iceman Cometh 3D is a story about two Ming Dynasty brocade guards who become frozen in ice during a fight. After their preserved bodies are discovered centuries later, they are transported to Hong Kong for further scientific research. There, they are defrosted and revived.

Donnie Yen Can’t Stay Still

Donnie and Eva were recently spotted filming a scene for The Iceman Cometh 3D in Shau Kei Wan. Donnie did well in his scenes with Eva, but when it came to filming his own nightmare scene, one camera shot took over an hour and a half to film.

The said scene, which was of Donnie have a nightmare, required Donnie to roll his eyes back and forth in his sleep. With bright lighting shining on his face and having to stay still in a physically compact environment, Donnie looked very uncomfortable and exhausted. The simple scene resulted in several outtakes.

As soon as the cameras stopped rolling, Donnie jumped out of bed and began to do stretching exercises. Donnie admitted that the scene made his body numb and gave him muscle cramps. His eyes dried quickly because of the strong camera light, and he had to use eye drops consistently.

Thankfully for Donnie, The Iceman Cometh 3D will be heavily packed in action, so he will not have to stay still for long. Donnie revealed that the crew recently sent in a request to the Hong Kong government for them to film in the colorful and grand Tsing Ma Bridge.

The Iceman Cometh 3D will feature the onscreen destruction of famous landmarks in Hong Kong. “We want to do a scene which involves a speed race between a horse and a Ferrari. If our request isn’t approved, then we will have to build our own bridge for the scene. We also need to do an explosion scene on Nathan Road, so we really need the government to work with us,” said Donnie.

Looks like a pretty complicated set up for a dialogue scene. :)

News reports has surfaced concerning financial problems from Hong Kong-based One Dollar Production Lt. (run by Stephen Siu Jr) leading up to him as well as his father Stephen Shiu (producer and writer of the original Iceman Cometh) backing out from the production.

Turns out they ran into trouble with Mainland investors who showed lack of approval. Because of this, the production was halted for half a month while the Sius' tried their best to co-operate with the Mainland parties and resulting their withdrawal. Mainland-based Zhongmeng Century Media purchased shares from the Sius' and are now providing full finance for the movie which has now continued production, as of January 25th.

Donnie Yen’s “The Iceman Cometh 3D” Filming at a Snail’s Pace


It appears that Wong Kar Wai (王家衛) has finally found a successor to emulate his slow-paced shooting style! It has been nearly four months since Donnie Yen’s (甄子丹) The Iceman Cometh 3D <3D冰封俠> has begun production, but the action flick is not even halfway done. Co-star Eva Huang (黄圣依) compared Donnie to Wong Kar Wai, exclaiming, “We haven’t filmed much. I don’t even know when we’re going to be done. I feel like I’m doing a Wong Kar Wai film!”

The Iceman Cometh 3D is a loose remake of the 1989 film of the same name, which starred Yuen Biao (元彪), Maggie Cheung (張曼玉), and Yuen Wah (元華). Featuring Donnie as a Ming Dynasty general, the 3D remake tells the story of Donnie’s accidental travel to the future as he is trying to run away from a royal guard, portrayed by Lost in Thailand <人再囧途之泰囧> star Wang Baoqiang (王宝强). Both Donnie and Baoqiang end up in present-day Hong Kong, where Donnie meets Eva Huang’s character, who eventually becomes his love interest. The comedy action film is directed by Law Wing Cheong (羅永昌) and produced by Wong Kin Sun (黄建新).

Donnie, who is also serving as the film’s action choreographer, revealed that the crew had just completed a seven-minute fight scene that took ten days to film. “I have high demands and the director has many demands. That is why the scene took so long to film,” Donnie justified.

The mentioned scene involved Donnie smashing a table while he was in an argument with Eva. The scene ends with Eva crying and storming out of the apartment.

As Donnie was busy preparing for the stunt and the props, Eva had to practice her tearful scene with director Law. Law requested Eva to shed out a tear in the shortest possible time, in which she managed to do in less than three seconds. Eva did not stop crying until Law yelled cut. Eva’s crying scene was completed within three takes, impressing the production crew and Donnie, who cried out, “Amazing!”

According to Eva, a significant chunk of the movie would be shooting on location in Beijing, but the crew is not even near to completing the Hong Kong scenes. Previous actions scenes that were filmed in the Tsing Ma Bridge and Central also had to be re-shot. At the film’s current shooting pace, the film may end up exceeding its initial $100 million HKD production budget.

Donnie Yen’s “The Iceman Cometh 3D” Soars to $200 Million Production Costs


Directed by Law Wing Cheong <羅永昌>, Donnie Yen’s (甄子丹) The Iceman Cometh 3D < 3D冰封俠> is currently shooting in Hong Kong. Starring Donnie Yen, Wang Baoqiang (王宝强), Eva Huang (黄圣依), and Simon Yam (任達華), The Iceman Cometh 3D is a loose adaptation of Yuen Biao’s (元彪) 1989 film of the same name. The action-packed flick centers around two Ming Dynasty guards who time travel to modern day Hong Kong.

Because the film is shooting at a snail’s pace, the film’s production budget went up from $100 million HKD to $200 million HKD. Despite having to invest on absurdly expensive technology to complement the film’s 3D cameras, the film’s producers expressed that they would rather sacrifice time over quality.

The production companies also spent another $100 million HKD to cover the film crew’s insurance. The Vice Chairman of Zhongmeng Century Media stated, “Quality is important, but our actors and crew will always be number one in the list. The actors are very professional, and many of them do not require stunt doubles. That is why we decided to add more to their insurance so the actors can work more at ease.”

Starring cast member Donnie Yen, who also serves as the film’s action choreographer, admitted that The Iceman Cometh 3D has been one of his most stressful projects in recent years. However, the Ip Man star pointed out that it is not his hectic work schedule that is giving him sleepless nights. “I take quality very seriously. I hope to provide a perfect film for the audiences to enjoy. If I was just an actor, it would not be necessary for me to appear in every shoot. Because I am both an actor and an action director, I have to be on set every time to guide others. This film is shot in 3D and every minute detail cannot be overlooked.”

Donnie added that while he feels the pressure, he has been enjoying his work. “It has been a smooth collaboration. The crew is very professional, and we get along very well. The atmosphere is great.”

Starring alongside Donnie is mainland actor Wang Baoqiang, best known for box office success, Lost in Thailand <人再囧途之泰囧>.

“I am a huge fan of Donnie. I am so happy to have the chance to work with him. It’s a dream come true!” gushed Baoqiang.

Born in Nanhe County, Hebei, Baoqiang is well-known for his rags-to-riches story in the mainland film industry. Wanting to be a martial arts film star, Baoqiang traveled to a Shaolin monastery at a young age to learn kung fu. Baoqiang never had the chance to fully flaunt his martial arts skills until The Iceman Cometh 3D.

“Donnie has choreographed a special skill for me to perform in the film,” said Baoqiang. “I am working hard on it.”

Baoqiang is thankful for Donnie’s patience in teaching him the skill, and the two actors get along really well.

“In the past, I thought if you had a kung fu background, you would be able to film a kung fu movie. It was not until now when I realized that knowing kung fu does not mean you will film a good kung fu movie. Donnie is very serious when he choreographs. Every small movement is deliberately arranged. The choreography is fascinating and beautiful to look at. I have grown quite a bit since collaborating with him. I am very thankful.”

There is currently no news on whether or not the release for The Iceman Cometh 3D will be pushed back from its originally announced late 2013 release.

I think it's Donnie's sense of humor. Maybe his comic flair just doesn't click with most people. Either way, he's coming back serious with Kung Fu Jungle and his Kowloon Walled City film.
