Keanu Reeves makes is directorial debut in the upcoming martial arts action film, Man Of Tai Chi. While details are still sparse, the trailer shows us Reeves as the film’s villain, who lures Tiger Chen’s character (who played Keanu’s stunt man on the last two Matrix films) into the underground world of fighting to put his tai-chi skills to the test.

“I can’t fight tai-chi for money. It’s dishonorable,” the hero says. Against his will, Chen has to fight… but refuses to finish his opponents as he’s ordered.

No release date for Man Of Tai Chi at press time.
