Before we can even think about Xu Haofeng’s Moonlight Blade (his soon-to-be-shot remake of Chor Yuen’s Shaw Brothers classic, The Magic Blade), our attention should be focused on Hidden Blade (not to be confused with the Yoji Yamada film of the same name), Xu’s fourthcoming period actioner that’s currently in production (via AFS).

Very little is known about Hidden Blade (aka The Hidden Sword), other than it’s a “martial arts epic” that stars Xu Qing (Flash Point), Jessie Li (Port of Call) and Shaw Brothers legend, Chen Kuan Tai (Shanghai 13Executioners from Shaolin). But given the fact that Xu is at the helm, Hidden Blade has our full attention.

We expect to see marketing materials (theatrical posters, teasers, trailers, etc.) for Hidden Blade to pop up in the next few months, so stay tuned.

For now, if you want to catch up on some of Xu’s earlier films, the DVD for Sword Identity is currently available; the DVD for Judge Archer will go on sale in November; and the Blu-ray/DVD release for his latest film, The Master (aka The Final Master), is expected to be announced soon.

Updates: A promotional Poster has popped up (via AFS):
