Li’s drawn into ‘Fearless’ lawsuit

Huo claims pic damages his family's reputation

HONG KONG — “Fearless” star Jet Li’s name has been added to a lawsuit in China over alleged misrepresentations in the hit film, according to the Xinhua News Agency.

Huo Shoujin, the 81-year-old grandson of martial-arts hero Huo Yuanjia, the subject of the pic, filed suit March 7 in Beijing, claiming the movie damages his family’s reputation.

He wants to stop the film from being screened and to elicit a written public apology from producer China Film Group and Hong Kong-based distrib Edko Films.

Li was added to the suit because he played the lead and participated in the production of the movie, said Yang Zhonghai, a lawyer for the Huo family.
