Jet Li Coming Out Of Retirement For First Wushu Epic In Four Years image
In a move that will surprise absolutely nobody, Jet Li has decided to unretire from period kung-fu films, taking a role in the upcoming New Dragon Gate Inn. The film, which will be his first wushu epic since 2006's Fearless, will see Li reteam with director Tsui Hark for the first time since the completion of the Once Upon a Time in China trilogy, which ended in 1993. According to CRIEnglish.com, the film will be a remake of the 1992 film Dragon Inn and will be shot in 3D.

The real question remains why Li decided to "retire" in the first place. Most of the actor's greatest work exists in the wushu genre and it's not as though he retired from action films all together. Whether he liked the paycheck or simply wants to return to the genre that made him a star, it will be fantastic to see Li back doing what he does best: kicking ass during the days of the Chinese dynasties.
