Wong Jing’s “Princess and Seven Kung Fu Masters” in Theaters March 8
Comedy lovers, who crave a bit of kung fu in the mix, can now look forward to Princess and Seven Kung Fu Masters <笑功震武林> which will premiere on March 8.
The film is directed by Wong Jing (王晶) and starring Wong Cho Lam (王祖藍), Sandra Ng (吳君如), Eric Tsang (曾志偉), Ronald Cheng (鄭中基), Sammo Hung (洪金寶), Yuen Wah (元華), and Philip Ng (伍允龍). The comedic cast will bring lots of laughter to the audience by incorporating Bollywood-inspired dancing and choreography.
The trailer of Princess and Seven Kung Fu Masters is a parody on martial arts films in which Cho Lam attempts to learn powerful martial arts and win the love of a beautiful lady. From Sandra’s head full of fruits to Cho Lam cross-dressing as a woman, the actors and actresses do not mind showcasing their unflattering side to the audience in order to generate laughs.
Wong Cho Lam admits that there is nothing the cast would not do in order to make the movie funnier and sillier. “During filming, we tried to avoid eye contact and not directly look at one another because someone is bound to burst out laughing. There was a scene where Eric had to drink pee and everyone on set was laughing like crazy.”
The movie’s theme song follows the tune of Richie Jen’s (任賢齊) famous classic, “The Girl Across is Looking Over” <對面的女孩看過來>. With new lyrics and performed by the multi-talented Wong Cho Lam, the theme song features another aspect to smile about.
Aside from rewriting and singing the theme song, Wong Cho Lam also acted as the improv producer on set. He would constantly share ideas and suggestions with Wong Jing in order to make a particular scene funnier, which also got the approval of Sandra and Eric. Wong Jing said, “Wong Cho Lam is a natural at coming up with these funny scenes, so I am open to adopting his suggestions.”
With Wong Cho Lam’s involvement in the film, he is proving to audiences that there is nothing this ambitious actor cannot tackle.
