Andrew Lau's kung-fu pic lands at Venice

ROME — The Venice Film Festival has announced that Hong Kong helmer Andrew Lau’s martial arts actioner “Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zen” will world preem on the Lido.

Lau’s kung-fu pic, which will bring back to the screen martial arts hero Chen Zhen, played by Bruce Lee in the 1972 cult classic “Fist of Fury,” will unspool out-of-competish on the Lido on Sept. 1, marking the anniversary of the late Lee’s 70th birthday.

“Legend of the Fist” is produced and distributed internationally by China’s Media Asia.
