    WWE Sleeping Dogs (TBA) - Donnie Yen

    A movie based on Square Enix and United Front Games’ Sleeping Dogs is in development, according to a report from Deadline. The movie will reportedly star actor Donnie Yen, who recently starred in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and is the lead in the Ip Man series of films.

    Production company Original Film, which has a pedigree in action fare like the Fast and Furious franchise, will produce the adaptation of Sleeping Dogs.

    In the Sleeping Dogs video game, players assumed the role of Wei Shen, an undercover Hong Kong-American police officer who infiltrates and attempts to take down a criminal organization from the inside. Players had to fight their way up the ranks without blowing their cover. Actor Will Yun Lee portrayed Wei Shen in the video game version.

    Sleeping Dogs was originally released in 2012 for PlayStation 3, Windows PC and Xbox 360. A “Definitive Edition” re-release hit PlayStation 4 and Xbox One about two years later. Developer United Front Games worked on a spin-off title, Triad Wars, which was canceled in 2015. United Front shut down late last year.

    Sign me the fuck up. Sleeping Dogs is an amazing game with a great story and I'm beyond stoked that they have cast Donnie Yen and not Keanu Reeves or some shit.

    Sleeping Dogs was a great game. The story had had similarities to The Departed and the action was a mix of martial arts, shooting, and high speed chases. This has every excuse to be awesome and badass.

    Would love it if they got Iko Uwais somehow involved as well as Takeshi Kaneshiro and Andy Lau cause they're dope as fuck. A Sleeping Dogs film with Raid style fight scenes is guaranteed GOAT status.

    Don't forget the best part, a re-imagining of "I'm Wei Shen, motherfucker. Who are you?"

    Everything about this is epic. So excited for this. Hope a sequel to the game is in the works.

    Yeah I never played the game Sleeping Dogs, but if Yen is locked in for the role then I'm locked in. This man was made for this role, Fuji and I for years have been talking about we can't wait to see more American Audiences see the greatness we've seen. Now after Rogue One, roles are lining up for him fucking love it!
