Lionsgate will be unleashing their latest Asian film acquisition in January with the release of the rebooted Who Am I 2015 with a new title (a staple of Lionsgate).
The film, now titled Amnesia, stars Ocean Wang, Zhang Lanxin, Ken Lo, Anna Yao, and Yu Rongguang. Jackie Chan produced the film, which is an essential reboot of his 1998 film about an amnesiac who must use his skills to take on villains who are connected with him. The film was directed by Song Xinyi.
Martial-arts legend Jackie Chan presents this pulse-pounding update to his own classic thriller. Finding himself at a murder scene, bike courier Li Ziwei (Wang) tries to escape, but the culprits force him off a bridge. The amnesia from his head injuries means he can’t recognize the faces of his enemies, who have framed him for the crime. Now, carrying the parcel that’s his only clue, and with the help of sassy hitchhiker Tong Xin, Li Ziwei must outrun killers and cops while racing to clear his name of the mysterious murder.
Amnesia is set for release on DVD and Digital HD on January 3, 2017 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.
