Action thriller “Badges of Fury,” starring Jet Li and Zhang Wen, has seen strong international sales prior to its Chinese opening next month.

Arclight Films specialty label Easternlight is selling “Badges of Fury” at Cannes, signing Well Go for North America. Other territories sold include Australia/NZ to Topkey; Germany to Constantin; Hong Kong and Macaw to My Way Film; Japan to Happinet; Singapore to Scorpio East; Taiwan to Apex Success; and Thailand to Mono Generation.

“Badges of Fury” is produced by Po Chu Chui. Wen and Li play detectives attempting to solve three Hong Kong murders, which may be the work of a serial killer.

Wen and Li have previously teamed on “Ocean Heaven” and “The Sorcerer and the White Snake.” The film was shot in Hong Kong last summer.
