Only one Chinese-language film has made it into the lineup of this year's Cannes Film Festival.

Chinese director Peter Chan's new action film "Wu Xia" will debut in the "Midnight Screenings" segment.

The film stars action king Donnie Yen, "The Warlords" star Takeshi Kaneshiro and "Lust, Caution" actress Tang Wei.

Kaneshiro takes on the role of a detective, determined to catch a repentant killer, played by Yen, who has retreated to a remote village with his wife, played by Tang.

"Wu Xia" is set for release this summer.
