Upcoming film "Iceman 3D"
Rumour has it that Donnie Yen's upcoming film, "Iceman 3D", which was previously titled "The Iceman Cometh 3D" will be split into two parts, reported Twitch Film. Following extensive re-shoots, excessive spending and location issues, it was reported that the final product has 3.5 to 4 hours of footage. Instead of editing the movie into two hours, the producers have decided to turn the movie into two parts. It was stated that the "Iceman 3D Part I" will be released this Christmas, while "Iceman 3D Part II" will be out on Chinese New Year next year. The split seems to be a smart move on the producers' part, seeing that the movie has already gone over budget. Directed by Law Wing Chung, the remake of Clarence Fok's 1989 film, "Iceman 3D" stars Donnie Yen as a warrior from the Ming era who, together with his nemesis (played by Wang Baoqiang) are frozen during a fight. Decades later, they are defrosted, and decide to continue where they left off in modern day Hong Kong.
