Donnie Yen’s “Special ID” Releases Trailer


Donnie Yen (甄子丹) was in Beijing this week to promote his new action movie, Special ID <特殊身份>. With Donnie as the film’s producer, action choreographer, and lead actor, Special ID promises to thrill with its gripping action scenes. The official movie trailer was released this week. Special ID will arrive in theaters in October 2013.

The story takes place in Hong Kong and Shenzhen, in which Donnie’s character is caught between the police and gangs. Donnie said, “I have done films for more than 31 years. I have tried every genre, but modern action movies are my personal favorite. From filming SPL: Sha Po Lang <杀破狼> and Flash Point <导火线> to today – when I have the opportunity to film Special ID – everything, including the packaging, the content, and the production have been upgraded.”

Director Clarence Fok (霍耀良) said the action moves in the film were all very realistic. Oscar award winning cinematographer Peter Pau (鲍德熹) described the film as bloody and emotional. He added, “There are now several high-grossing Chinese movies which are low budget and did not require a lot of effort. We used a lot of sincerity, blood, sweat and emotions to film this movie. It is an important milestone in film-making.”

On Clash with Vincent Zhao

When Vincent Zhao (赵文卓) had first signed on to film Special ID opposite Donnie Yen, fans were excited at the prospect of the two martial arts stars in one movie. However, the actors soon clashed on set due to different working styles. Vincent accused Donnie for being domineering, resulting in Vincent being forced out of the project in March 2012. Andy On (安志杰) later stepped in for Vincent’s role.

At the press conference, Donnie was asked about the truth behind Vincent’s accusation that he was a tyrant on the movie set. Before Donnie could reply, actress Jing Tian (景甜) said, “Do you expect everyone to be gentle all the time? Donnie is an especially serious person so some people may misunderstand him to be a tyrant. But this is right. He has a responsibility to ensure the movie and every actor is doing well.”

Donnie also added, “Art itself is subjective. Many people take ten years or even a lifetime to film movies. It’s that kind of persistence.”

Regarding claims that his remuneration for the movie exceeded 80 million RMB, Donnie said, “It was definitely a joke. Jackie Chan (成龙) and I are really good friends. I just met up with him last night. Who can beat him?”

Lawsuit with Tan Bing

Donnie became embroiled in a lawsuit when director Tan Bing (檀冰) claimed that Donnie seized his film project, Ultimate Codebreaker <终极解码> and renamed it to Special ID. Tan Bing alleged that his investor had withdrawn from the project and thus, caused him to lose his job as scriptwriter and director. Tan brought the matter to court and demanded compensation from Donnie. In return, Donnie filed a lawsuit against Tan for damaging his reputation, demanding compensation of 5 RMB million in the process.

Donnie said, “I hope the Beijing court will give me a fair judgement. The production crew told me Starlit International Media and Tan Bing already had a broken relationship. Anyway, it’s not true. Special ID is an independent project.” Donnie added, “I feel this society can be very confusing. I have made films for 30 years or so. The most important thing is to be steadfast, so that I can answer to myself and the viewers. I can’t control what other people say.”

Came across this article and if I'm correct, it looks like Donnie will create a franchise (the first time he'll get one of his own as well) out of the movie.

Donnie was talking about how he hopes his best is still yet to come, and that he'll be able to films that'll truly be "Yen-style" in the next decade, beginning with Special ID. It was the film studio that said if the film did well they're interested in sequels.

I'm still unclear on how much training Andy On has had as a martial artist, and how exactly he came up. He seems to be up for these action roles a lot, pitted against the legends, but from what I've seen each time he's frequently doubled.

AFAIK, Andy got into serious MA training just before shooting of Black Mask 2 began although it's possible that he trained much earlier than that, being into martial arts since watching Jackie Chan's movies. He's frequently trained by Philip Ng.

I'm silently protesting his role in this film. I've never seen him do anything remotely unique.

Donnie's new movies have a bad habit of pitting him in climatic matches against actors he'd very obviously outclassed.

It has now been officially confirmed that Donnie Yen, among other action scenes (including a big gang fight inside a nightclub), will have fight scenes with Andy On, Zhang Hanyu (playing an assassin specializing in firearms), Ken Lo AND Collin Chou.

The latter two should be excellent match ups.

in an alternate universe there is a special identity in which 1) the script doesn't have to abide by a moral code that nobody cares about and, more importantly....2) DONNIE YEN FIGHTS CHIU MAN CHEUK INSTEAD OF ANDY ON

I'd put Andy On in the Andy Lau and Max Mok category. He can sell a fight well enough but he doesn't stand out in any way and he's usually doubled for the more difficult stuff. I don't think it's too much of an issue with this film since Donnie's fights are usually about Donnie and Andy On is passable enough not to look like a goon.

Donnie's starting to go away from that though. In Bodyguards & Assassins, he let his choreography allow more room to get beat up by Cung Le, and in Wu Xia he let Kara Hui bet him up good and left all the ass whoopin to Jimmy Wang Yu. I think this movie will see more formidable and fiercer fight scenes from both ends, and in Andy's case it looks like Donnie will get beat up pretty bad considering stills of the fight with Donnie's face all wounded up and bloody.

I think it's amazing how dedicated Andy On is to training - he's doing more than Nick Tse I would say, and he can really kick. I just think he's missing something. Max Mok was never that cut or flexible, but, like Andy Lau, he gets it. Andy On felt like he has the moves, but doesn't have the intention.
