Enlight Pictures, the company responsible for the upcoming wuxia blockbuster "The Four", yesterday released two conceptual posters and announced that the film is set to hit cinemas on July 12, Mtime.com reports.

Co-directed by Gordon Chan and Janet Chun, and adapted from Wen Ruian's famous novel of the same name, the film boasts a cast of famous stars including Deng Chao, Liu Yifei, Collin Chou, Ronald Cheng, Anthony Wong, Wu Xiubo, Jiang Yiyan, Cheng Taishen and Shereen Tang.

Gordon Chan has stated that the movie attempts to explain the concept of "xia" (swordsman) to young people by utilizing a more fashionable approach. In the original novel, the four swordsmen are male. In a creative twist, Chan replaced one of the four male roles with a female, portrayed by Liu Yifei.

Movie fans that are fascinated by Chinese wuxia classics can catch the movie in theatres from July 12.
