If you’ve seen Keanu Reeves’ “Man of Tai Chi” you’re probabaly aware that, at one point, Tiger Chen was meant to be the next big thing in kung fu cinema.
Despite being a protege of the legendary Yuen Woo Ping, his fame never really came to fruition.
Here he is in the new film, “Kung Fu Traveler”. It looks like “Timecop” with a bit more kung fu. I’m not saying that’s a good thing, but it certainly looks like it’ll be worth a peek.

A rare behind the scenes photo from “The Matrix” featuring Carrie Anne Moss, Keanu Reeves, Tiger Chen (the star of Reeves’ directorial debut, “Man of Tai Chi”) and legendary fight choreographer Yuen Woo Ping.  I’m pretty sure that’s Yuen Shun Yi, Woo Ping’s brother, in the middle too.

If you look in the background, you can see the destroyed pillars from the lobby shootout in the first film.
