Donnie Yen is set to star in a Sleeping Dogs movie


It looks like Donnie Yen is going to star in a film adaptation of the Sleeping Dogs video game. I love the game, I love Donnie Yen, so this has the potential to be great.

Set in contemporary Hong Kong, the single-player story follows Wei Shen, an undercover Hong Kong-American police officer on assignment to infiltrate the Sun On Yee Triad organization. Gameplay focuses on Shen’s fighting, shooting and parkour abilities, and on gadgets that can be used for combat and exploration. Players must complete missions to unlock content and continue the story, but they may instead wander the game’s open world and engage in both legal and criminal activities. The latter may incite a police response, the intensity of which is controlled by a “heat” system. Actions such as fighting, driving and racing grant Shen statistical rewards and earn the player achievements.

Neal Moritz is producing the new film, which will follow an undercover police officer (Yen) on a mission to take down one of the most powerful and dangerous criminal organizations in the world: the notorious Triads.

Hopefully, they do this the right way, but what elements from the video game would you like to see in the film?
