Action star Donnie Yen says he sought to challenge his stereotyped image by bringing out more of the protagonist's personality in his latest film "Special ID".

"I used to concentrate on how to thrill audiences with my martial arts," Yen said at a press conference in Beijing on Monday, July 22. "But now, I wish to combine personality with action."

"Special ID", or "Te Shu Shen Fen" in Chinese, directed by Clarence Fok Yiu-leung, revolves around an undercover police officer's fight with a ruthless underworld gang. It is scheduled to debut in October this year.

Although he is known for popularizing the Wing Chun martial arts style, Yen said he would rather try a challenging role that includes different styles.

"My kung-fu shouldn't be confined merely to the Wing Chun school," he said.

Yen said the film's complicated storyline and the protagonist's sophisticated personality inspired him to take on the movie.
