New Teaser For Stephen Chow's Journey To The West

It has been a very long wait for fans of Stephen Chow but it seems as though one of Hong Kong's biggest stars is finally set to return to the screen.

Chow's last leading role was in CJ7 which came out back in 2008. Since then he lent his voice to the cartoon movie CJ7 Loves The Earth and was one of the many, many stars to make an appearance in The Founding Of A Republic.

Along the way he made an attempt to launch a career in Hollywood and was linked with the feature film version of The Green Hornet before walking away from that.

In 2013 Chow returns to that beloved Chinese story The Journey To The West, which he has explored onscreen in the past in the two parts of A Chinese Odyssey back in 2004.

For the new film, which is generally known as The Journey To The West or Odyssey on the IMDB, Chow is working with director Derek Kwok, who helmed the excellent retro kung fu movie Gallants.

A new teaser trailer has been released for the new film, which you can see below.

Joining Chow in the cast are Shu Qi, who has worked with the star before on The Lucky Guy, Chrissie Chau and Wen Zhang.

Kwok and Chow will have some competition on Chinese screens as Donnie Yen and Soi Cheang will be releasing their own adaptation, The Monkey King, next year.
