With box office earnings of 550 Million RMB, director Tsui Hark's IMAX 3D blockbuster "Flying Swords of the Dragon Gate" set a new record for Chinese Kung Fu movies. Hot on the heels of this exciting news, producer Wu Siyuan announced that a revised edition of Tsui Hark's classic movie "Dragon Inn" (1992) will hit mainland's screens on February 24, mtime.com reports.

Supervised by Tsui Hark and directed by Raymond Lee, "Dragon Inn" featured an all-star cast including Tony Leung, Maggie Cheung, Brigitte Lin and Donnie Yen. At the time, the movie was regarded as a prime example of the new genre of Hong Kong Kung Fu movies. The film is still one of the most talked-about Kung Fu movies among die-hard fans.

Wu revealed that the original story line will remain unaltered but the picture and sound quality will be upgraded with the help of the latest technology. The movie has been dubbed with mandarin dialogue and will only be screened on the Chinese Mainland for the time being.

Wu has stated that if the movie succeeds at the box office there is a chance that it will be re-released in other regions.
