HK martial arts star Donnie Yen could be 1st Chinese James Bond

Major Chinese dailies reported that Hong Kong martial arts star Donnie Yen could be the first Chinese James Bond.

It was reported that Hollywood producers are in search for the se­­venth 007 agent and Yen is on the list of potential actors for the role.

However, these were just rumours spread by Mediamass - a website known for its phony articles of cele­brities in the name of humour.

Asked about the matter, Yen laughed and said he found the idea "creative".

"This is hilarious. Not bad if this is true... China is a huge market, the box office will be definitely be good," he said.
