Buena Vista to distribute Jet Li's first Chinese film on TV

MUMBAI: Buena Vista International Television-Asia Pacific (BVITV-AP) has received the television distribution rights to

Fearless, starring international action superstar Jet Li, produced by Bill Kong and directed by Ronny Yu.

This is BVITV-AP's first Chinese-language feature for television distribution. 

Under this agreement, BVITV-AP has the rights to distribute Fearless in various markets across Asia including Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, Indonesia and the Philippines. The martial arts epic is expected to make its television debut later this year on Star Chinese Movies in Singapore, the Philippines and Taiwan, where it has been licensed by BVITV-AP.

Coming from the producer of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and House of Flying Daggers, Fearless is based on the tragic life of one

of China's most renowned martial arts masters Huo Yuanjia (1868-1910) who is played by Jet Li and supported by an international cast lead by Japanese actor Nakamura Shido. 

BVITV-AP senior VP, MD Steve Macallister says, "We are thrilled to be extending our portfolio with this Asian box office hit and underlines our commitment to carefully enhancing our portfolio with quality local content. We look forward to the movie's continued success as it launches later

this year on Star Chinese Movies in various markets across Asia."

Star GM Chinese programming Jason Siu said, "We are delighted to work with BVITV-AP in adding yet another blockbuster to Star Chinese Movies, the world's most powerful Chinese movie channel. We are confident that Fearless, with its huge box office success and the mass appeal of Jet Li, will give viewers another spectacular viewing experience."

The film was recently released in theatres in the US. It opened in various Asian markets earlier this year including China, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Taiwan, and has

grossed nearly $60 million to date at the worldwide box office.
