The Sleeping Dogs Movie Adaptation Is Still Happening

The Sleeping Dogs Movie Adaptation Is Still Happening

Actor Donnie Yen has now shared the first image from the movie itself.

Early a year ago it was reported that Hong Kong action superstar Donnie Yen was planning to follow up his Western breakthrough role in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story with an adaptation of the 2012 open-world game, Sleeping Dogs.

Yen, most recently of Star Wars: Rogue One, took to Instagram to unveil a promotional shot of himself in a Sleeping Dogs-style pose, i.e. tight jeans, whilst looking all angsty as rain pours overhead. It has been very quiet since that information was revealed March 2017.

In a caption accompanying a series of photos, Yen writes, "Sometimes great things take a bit of time". You played as Wei Shen, a Chinese-American cop tasked with infiltrating the violent Sun On Yee Triad. Frames are compared with the moments from the video game. Speaking of which in retrospect, Yen would still seem to be a natural pick for the role as he boasts an extensive portfolio of martial arts action movies that directly fit the Sleeping Dogs mould, including the Kill Zone and SPL movies to name just a couple. Will you see this movie? We haven't heard anything on the project for some time, but Yen has confirmed the movie is still happening.

Hopefully the movie ends up being good as video games have always failed in the movie business.

There haven't been anymore updates about the movie itself, and we're still not sure when exactly it'll see its official release.
