[Movies] Donnie Yen Explains Why He Passed On The Expendables 2
Posted by Joseph Lee on 07.07.2012



Hong Kong action star Donnie Yen recently revealed to Coming Soon why he decided to pass on The Expendables 2.

He has been a huge action star in Hong Kong for over twenty years, but has mostly stayed out of Western films. One of his only Hollywood productions is Guillermo del Toro's Blade 2.

Yen visited New York City for the New York Asian Film Festival, where he received a Star Asia award and answered questions about his movies The Lost Bladesman and Dragon (Wu xia).

Yen said: "They wanted me to be in 'Expendables 2' but I just didn't feel the role clicked. I was flattered that I was approached by the producers but I just didn't see the role they asked me to do being that intriguing. I didn't really want to do it but I'm open for anything. Doing a movie is a stressful thing. You spend months of you life focusing into that one project and I want to make sure I do something I really like or I'm really passionate about."

Dragon (Wu xia premieres on Monday, July 9 at the New York Asian Film Festival. Tickets are sold out but those interested can get on the standby line. Yen's other film, The Lost Bladesman, premieres tonight at the Walter Reade at 6:30 PM with tickets still available.
