“Mr. Six” (老炮儿) (previously known as “Fading Wave”) is an upcoming 2015 Chinese action comedy film directed by Guan Hu and written by Dong Runnian. It stars Feng Xiaogang, Zhang Hanyu, Li Yifeng, Xu Qing, and former EXO member Wu Yifan.
In “Mr. Six”, Wu Yifan will portray the role of a young man named Xiao Fei (Xiao Ye Er). He recently left his fans absolutely stunned when he sported his new “hairdo” at an event in Beijing, and according to SBS.com.au, it was initially thought that he had shaved his hair for his role in the movie.
However, that might not be entirely true (thanks for the tip, @winterfan!) as Wu Yifan can be seen sporting a full head of platinum/silver hair in the “Mr. Six” trailer.
The plot is as follows:
“Mr. Six” tells of an old 50-something-year-old street punk called “Lao Pao Er” who has reigned over the Beijing streets as the neighbourhood kingpin for many years. One day, when his mischievous son causes a dispute against a much younger drag-racing street gang leader, he steps up to help defend him. “Lao Pao Er” then discovers that the younger generation of gang members have already named this drag racer as his successor, and he no longer holds any ground in the street scene.
Main cast members Feng Xiaogang and Li Yifeng are scheduled the 72nd Venice International Film Festival, where the film will close in an out-of-competition screening. “Mr. Six” has also been selected to be screened in the Special Presentations section of the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.

“Mr. Six” is scheduled to be released on 24th December 2015 in China.
