Donnie Yen Will Direct And Star In Wuxia Epic ‘Sakra’
by Tito W. James
Sakra marks the directorial debut for martial arts action star Donnie Yen (John Wick 4, IP Man). The film is based on the classic wuxia novel Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils by Louis Cha. Donnie Yen stars as Qiao Feng, the respected leader of a roving band of martial artists. After he is wrongfully accused of murder and subsequently exiled, Qiao Feng goes on the run in search of answers about his own mysterious origin story—and the unknown enemies working to destroy him from the shadows.
Sakra will be in select theaters April 14 and available on digital starting April 18.
