One of the most anticipated films for 2012 is The Monkey King. This blockbuster film has a budget of 60 million USD, it will be filmed in IMAX-3D.
Martial artists Donnie Yen will be playing the title role of the Monkey King. The Monkey role is such an iconic martial arts role in film and TV, and only skilled martial artists are cast in the role. Previous actors who’ve played the Monkey King include: Jet Li, Dicky Cheung, Masaaki Sakai.
The other cast members - let me tell you, it is the D-R-E-A-M cast. Chow Yun-Fat is Jade Emperor. Aaron Kwok is the Bull Demon King. Peter Ho is Erlang Shen. Kelly Chen is Guan Yin. It is a very exciting cast.
The promotional pictures of the film have been circulating the internet. They look great! I really can’t wait to watch this film and see how they interpret the legend of Monkey.
Keep an eye out for it next year! I will keep you posted.
