Chinese actor and martial artist Donnie Yen is set to play lead character Wei Shen in a film adaptation of the 2012 GTA clone Sleeping Dogs from Original Film, one of the production companies behind the Fast and Furious movies. According to a report from Deadline, the Rogue One and Ip Man actor is such a big star in China that he was used in advertising for xXx: The Return of Xander Cage more prominently than Vin Diesel. With Hollywood always looking for new ways to compete in the lucrative Chinese box office, launching a movie set in Hong Kong and starring a bonafide Chinese star seems like a no-brainer. Well, as long as they don't touch on that pesky Hong Kong independence issue.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
