Radius-TWC, the distribution arm of The Weinstein Company, has just announced on Facebook that the Peter Chan-helmed martial arts film WU XIA, renamed DRAGON, will get a theatrical release in the US on Nov. 30 2012. The initial release will probably be limited to New York and Los Angeles, but it should go wider if the response is good. DRAGON, which stars Donnie Yen, Takeshi Kaneshiro, Kara Hui Ying-hung, Jimmy Wang Yu, and Tang Wei, has been described by Variety as ”a satisfyingly sinewy fusion of martial-arts actioner and brain-tickling noir.” The US DVD is tentatively slated for release in February / March, 2013.
