20 Dec – After much anticipation, it was revealed that the Donnie Yen comedy, "Enter the Fat Dragon" will be part of 2020's Lunar New Year line-up.

As reported on Oriental Daily, the movie, not to be confused with the 1978 Sammo Hung-starrer of the same name, is directed by prolific filmmaker Wong Jing, and co-stars Teresa Mo, Niki Chow, and Sandra Ng.

In the movie, Donnie plays the role of a police officer who gains a hefty amount of weight after being left at the altar by his fiancée.
