Zhang Jin, star of 2013 award-winning film The Grandmaster, will next be seen in "The Brink", by first-time director Jonathan Li.

The Brink is about the conflicts between a group of fishermen who smuggle gold and the cops who chase them. The film premiered Sunday in Beijing

Zhang Jin revealed the big challenge for him in the movie.

"The biggest challenge for me is I have action scenes in the rain on a boat. The boat was vibrating violently and leant to one side. I've never performed martial arts in such a circumstance. The listing of the boat is not made by angle shooting that appears unnaturally slanted up or down; it is instead a real occurrence."

In the film, Zhang acts a policeman who sports blonde hair, just like James Tien did in 1973's Seaman No. 7.

The policeman has four classic fight scenes in 'The Brink', against Hong Kong actor Shawn Yue.

The film also stars Wu Yue, Gordon Lam and an actress and fashion model from Hong Kong Janice Man. It will be released this Friday (Nov 10).
