Cast Photos From Benny Chan’s Martial Arts Epic Shaolin Temple

4 Comments

Although I’m not the biggest fan of director Benny Chan’s cinematic output, it’s hard not to get excited about a movie that features Jackie Chan, Andy Lau, and Nicholas Tse. The picture has recently been plagued with a number of production issues, though it appears the filmmakers hope to have the movie in the can and on the screen later this year. 24 Frames Per Second was kind enough to point kung fu fans in the general direction of some cast photos, which I have graciously included below. I’m anxious to see some actual footage from the flick, which, hopefully, should find its way onto the ‘net within the next few months. Fingers crossed!

When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.

    Benny Chan is a man that knows how to deliver a blockbuster, and you can guarantee this film is gonna follow in that trend..Andy Lau,Nic Tse,Jackie Chan,Jackie Wu-jing, and Fan Bing Bing,… chalk this one up. The only note worthy production set back that they had was a minor one concerning the directors decision on where to shoot the film. like i pointed out on my blog several days ago,Benny actually got permission to shoot the film on location at the Shaolin Temple, but because of heavy tourism,the fear of damaging the monastary, and the updated restoration that the temple has had over the years, he decided not to film there. Instead he shelled out what was something like $1.4 million US and had and exact full size replica of the temple built. It started filming in Oct. ’09 and as of now its still on track for its release later this summer. I can’t wait!!!!!

    I just want Jackie Chan to do some good martial arts. I want to see him engage in a “straight forward” fight scene with great technique like he did in his old school flicks like Drunken Master 1 & 2.

    For me the positive upside of this film besides Chan is the fact that my woman Fan Bingbing is in it too. God bless the world for that hottie :)
