The Raid’s Iko Uwais to Join Keanue Reeves’ Man of Tai Chi’
Variety is reporting that Iko Uwais, the star of Gareth Edwards’ action films Merentau and The Raid: Redemption, will be joining Keanu Reeves’ directorial debut, Man of Tai Chi. Apparently the Pencak Silat martial artist is going to have a strong presence in the film and will actually be fighting the star of the feature, Tiger Chen. Currently the film is shooting in Hong Kong and Uwais is on site according to a tweet he sent out a few days ago.
I have been eagerly awaiting a trailer for Reeves’ film but not now that Uwais is onboard there is no doubt in my mind that I will be seeing this movie. Uwais is an up and comcing action star who will be known around the world come the end of 2013 . Word of mouth has helped The Raid: Redemption and when Reeves’ film hits people will know who the next big martial art action star will be.
