Five years after their award winning performances in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill, co-stars David Carradine and Daryl Hannah are reunited in the action-packed, period martial arts adventure White Crane Chronicles, coming to DVD from Brightspark Productions on 29th December 2008.

It is the late 1920s and the Chinese Republic is in a state of political unrest with powerful warlords ruling many territories unchallenged. One such warlord is Khan Xin, a despotic leader whose control of one province extends to forcing the populace to work for him illegally producing and distributing opium. Those who resist Khan's rule face certain death. Daring to defy Khan is a temple of peaceful Wudang monks, led by an elderly female Grandmaster of the martial arts, Myling (Pei Pei Cheng), and her protégé, a Westerner known only as White Crane (Carradine).

When Myling is murdered during an unprovoked and devastating assault on the temple by an army of Khan's mercenaries, Crane vows revenge and travels to Shanghai with the intention of infiltrating the city's criminal underworld in order to get close to Khan. In Shanghai, Crane meets Jane Marshall (Hannah), a lounge singer from Brooklyn who is searching for her missing brother. A resident performer at the Double Paradise Club, Jane introduces Crane to the club's owner, Bingo Quo (Jimmy Taenaka), a man with his own personal score to settle with Khan.

With the help of his fighting skills and through Bingo's professional connections, Crane is able to gain Khan's trust and becomes a member of the warlord's inner circle. But with his target now in reach, will Crane be able to overcome his spiritual beliefs and strike the vengeful blow against the man responsible for his friend and mentor's death.

Co-starring Pei Pei Cheng (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; Naked Weapon), Jimmy Taenaka (American Yakuza), Kay Tong Lim (Brokedown Palace), Yu Beng Lim (Anna And The King) and Anya (Naked Weapon) and featuring breathtaking fight choreography by Cai Li (martial arts supervisor on Curse Of The Golden Flower, House Of Flying Daggers and Hero), White Crane Chronicles sees David Carradine making a welcome return to the genre that catapulted him to superstardom thanks to his starring role in the iconic 1970s TV series, Kung Fu.
