Jet Li, Donnie Yen, Wu Jing, Sammo Hung & Tony Jaa are ‘GSD’

GSD_sm

Back in September, rumors were running wild that Jet Li (League of Gods), Donnie Yen (Kung Fu Jungle) and Wu Jing (Wolf Warrior II) would be getting together for a project. It looks like those rumors were true, plus more (plus less)…

The project is a short film titled GSD, or Gong Shou Dao, which is derived from and influenced by Taiji, kung fu, and martial arts. The meaning represented in Chinese characters roughly translate into “martial art” that is based on “guard and defense” (via JL.com)

GSD stars Chinese billionaire/Tai Chi practitioner/founder of Alibaba Group, Jack Ma, Jet Li (also acting as the film’s producer), Sammo Hung, Donnie Yen, Wu Jing, Tony Jaa, Yuen Woo-Ping, Ching Siu Tung, Jacky Heung, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, boxer Zou Shiming and wrestler Asashoryu Akinori.

Updates: Watch the full short here.

    it would be amazing if the movie with this 3 super fighters will come out

    Massive grain of salt needed. Wu Jing simply said in a recent interview that he recently bumped into Jet Li and Donnie Yen, and that he leaves the possibility of working with Donnie up to fate. I think this piece of ‘news’ might be the result of some mistranslation, though obviously I do want to believe it might happen.

      I hear ya. At this point, everything is a grain of salt. Even when something is “official” (Noodle man, etc), it fizzles off and all of the sudden we get an Ip Man 9.

    I thought Jet Li was not healthy enough to do action movies anymore.

    Is it just me or is this some bored billionaire’s hopelessly lame vanity project?

    Bizarre product placement, and not sure I really understood the CGI fish either.

    “GSD stars Chinese billionaire/Tai Chi practitioner/founder of Alibaba Group, Jack Ma, Jet Li (also acting as the film’s producer), Sammo Hung, Donnie Yen, Wu Jing, Tony Jaa, Yuen Woo-Ping, Ching Siu Tung, Jacky Heung, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, boxer Zou Shiming and wrestler Asashoryu Akinori.”

    – The poster is misleading, Sammo Hung, Yuen Woo-Ping, and Ching Siu Tung don’t appear, they just helped out in some capacity behind the scenes.
