Keanu Reeves is to head behind the cameras for his directorial debut, Man Of Tai Chi.

The Speed star will also act in the English and Mandarin language martial arts film, alongside Tiger Hu Chen, one of the stuntmen in The Matrix films, reported Screen Daily.

He previously promised that the movie will be an all-kicking and ball-busting action movie.

"There's 18 fights. We've timed it out. It's about 40 minutes of fighting," he told MTV News.

"I want to make a good, solid kung fu movie. Good story, good plot - but let's get some good kung fu going!"

Man Of Tai Chi will be financed by Village Roadshow, China Film and Beijing-based Wanda Group.
