"Wushu" the movie

Wang joins Hippopotamus' 'Wushu'
Film looking for financing at FilMart
By VICKI ROTHROCK
Hippopotamus Films has signed China's Wang Wenjie to star in "Wushu," helmed by Antony Szeto ("DragonBlade").

"Wushu" (Chinese for martial arts) is about a teen who tries to brush up on his martial arts skills while mending ties with his father. Shooting will be complete by December or January.

The $1.5 million pic will be looking for financing at Hong Kong's FilMart this week, said Colette Koo, producer. Golden Network will provide coin and will distribute for some territories, Koo said.

Hippopotamus has retained Wang as a talent, with talent agent China Kingway Communications looking after him in China.

Hippopotamus also has Szeto's micro-budget "Jessica Caught on Tape." Pic has gone back for a rewrite to feature two lead femmes instead of one, Koo said. Pic also will take on a second director: London-based Rosa Fong.

Pic will star Evelyn Ng ("A Wicked Tale,") also known as Maria Ng, who is based in Singapore and Taipei.

wow...I hope its like one of those 90s karate kid style movies. screw the new crap, I want some cheesy dialogue and sappy father-son moments. While throwing some wushu training montage in there to some break beats.

anyone seen No Retreat No Surrender? CLASSIC.

Is there someplace else we can view the trailer? Can someone put it on youtube? I can seem to play the trailer off the previous link.

Is anyone a member of IMDB Pro? If you are could you type in wushu in film search and tell us what they are saying about this film.
