Zhao Wenzhuo's martial art film premieres in July

Mainland kung fu star Zhao Wenzhuo will show off his skills in Wudang martial arts in his new film.

Tentatively titled Big Wudang, the story is set in the early 20th century with Zhao playing opposite rising actress Yang Mi, who debuts as a swordswoman.

Wudang, one of the two major martial arts schools in China besides Shaolin, requires the individual to discipline the mind and is, therefore, often known as an "internal art".

Zhao has studied martial arts since he was 8 and became an established martial artist at 20.

The film's locations include the Wudang Mountains in Hubei province, which is believed to be where the school originated.

The film will premiere in July.
