Iceman movie trailer

Iceman by Law Wing-cheung

Iceman, formerly known as The Iceman Cometh, is a 2014 Hong Kong-Chinese 3D martial arts action-comedy film directed by Law Wing-cheung and starring Donnie Yen, who also serves as the film’s action director. The film is a remake of the 1989 film The Iceman Cometh which was directed by Clarence Fok and starred Yuen Biao, who was earlier reported to join the film. Donnie Yen hand-picked Jam Hsiao for his unique voice and deep emotions to sing the Mandarin theme song. The Cantonese version is sung by Hong Kong singer and actor Julian Cheung. The film was released in Hong Kong and China on April 25, 2014.

Filming for Iceman began on December 19, 2012 in Hong Kong. Originally produced at a budget of HK$100 million, the production soared up to HK$200 million due to its slow paced filming and to cover the film crew’s insurance. Because the Hong Kong government did not approve the film to shoot at the Tsing Ma Bridge, an addition of HK$50 million was spent in order to build an imitation set of the Tsing Ma Bridge. Lead actor and action director Donnie Yen said that a seven-minute fight scene took ten days to shoot. Besides Hong Kong, a chunk of the film would also be filmed in Beijing. For a car chase scene, actor Julian Cheung also loaned his black Lamborghini to the production.

Filming locations include Hong Kong’s defunct Kai Tak Airport and the Changbai Mountains. [wikipedia]
