Early previous year, we reported that Donnie Yen was set to star in a film based on the game Sleeping Dogs. Yen shared his post on Instagram that shows two side-by-side images that make a clear reference to his upcoming role in the Sleeping Dogs movie.
In a caption accompanying a series of photos, Yen writes, "Sometimes great things take a bit of time". Sleeping Dog is motion, you guys ready for this?' There's even a #kickass hashtag to confirm that, yes, this movie will kick some ass, in case you weren't sure. Yen accompanies the message with a variety of shots of himself next to images from the game.
The game was released back in August 2012 and had players take control of Wei Shen, a former police officer tasked with infiltrating and taking down the Triad organisation Sun On Yee.More news: California Girl Scout sells 312 boxes of cookies near pot dispensary

Alongside Yen's statements on the film, his Instagram post also included a number of screenshots from the game, and while Yen's exact role in the game has yet to be revealed, hopefully there is a chance that he will be portraying the protagonist from the original game, Wei Shen.
DJ2 specialises in TV and film adaptations of video games, whose recent projects include Little Nightmares, We Happy Few, and Life is odd. Many were skeptical of if the film would actually get made since it wasn't a mega-popular IP and big video games already have enough trouble getting films made but it appears Sleeping Dogs has already begun filming! Will you see this movie?
