Stephen Chow will be back
The sequel to martial-arts smash “Kung Fu Hustle” commences in July, according to Monkey Peaches.
The film, which reunites star Stephen Chow and the original cast, would follow hot on the heels of a new TV series spin-off of the action/comedy.
The site reports that rumours concerning another project Chow was apparently involved in, which would have seen him play an astronaut who helps an alien kid return home, have been found false.
Chan said recently that he’s going to try and improve on the original with the sequel and that “there will be a lot of new characters in the movie. We’ll need a lot of new actors. It’s possible that we’ll look for people abroad besides casting locals”.
