Bigtime Asian stars Jet Li, Andy Lau and Takeshi Kaneshiro have signed to co-star in Peter Ho-Sun Chan‘s "Ci Ma" (aka "This Violent Land"), a big-scale period epic that’ll probably have lots of great action scenes.

From Variety: "China’s passion for period war epics shows no sign of abating as Asian thesps Jet Li, Andy Lau and Takeshi Kaneshiro prep to don their Qing Dynasty armor for the $40 million-budget "Ci Ma" (This Violent Land).

At the helm will be Peter Ho-Sun Chan, fresh from directing the Golden Horse-winning "Perhaps Love." Femme roles have yet to be cast.

"Ci Ma" is an heroic tale of three blood brothers and their struggle in the midst of war and political upheaval. It is based on "The Assassination of Ma," a Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) story about the killing of general Ma Xinyi. The story was filmed by Zhang Che in 1973 as "The Blood Brothers."
