Lau's 'Fist' Gets Second Opening Slot at Venice

Director Andrew Lau’s “Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen” will be the second opening night film at the 67th Venice International Film Festival, Sept. 1-11. The world premiere starring Donnie Yen, Shu Qi, Anthony Wong and Huang Bo will screen out of competition on Sept. 1 - what would have been the late Bruce Lee's 70th birthday -who first brought the hero Chen Zhen to life in “Fist of Fury” in 1972. The 10 pm Chen Zhen premiere at Venice will follow the American director Darren Aronofsky’s “The Black Swan” showing as a part of the Biennale’s opening ceremony.
