Jet Li is bitten but not shy in new film

Jet Li will combat a white snake in his latest kungfu film.

In It's Love, a fantasy/kungfu flick, Li plays a monk who masters martial arts.

The film, adapted from a classic Chinese tale, involves the romance between the intellectual Xu Xian and Bai Suzhen, a white-snake-turned woman. Li's Fahai is a monk who tries to separate them, in the belief that people should not fall in love with goblins.

In the trailer, Li uses prayer beads and a wand to fight the white snake goblin, played by young actress Huang Shengyi. He shows up throughout the two-minute-trailer, making the film seem more like a biopic of Fahai instead of a love story between the snake and the intellectual.

The film will premiere at the end of September.
