THE MONKEY KING 2 (SAI YAU GEI ji SUEN NG HUNG SAM DA BAK GWUT JING) has already been scheduled for a Lunar New Year 2016 release. After Aaron Kwok Fu Sing went from the "Demon King" to the "Monkey King", the film yesterday made a heavyweight announcement of the addition of the international Best Actress Gong Li. She will try her first 3D action film production and play the White Bone Spirit.
Playing the Queen of the Demons White Bone Spirit will be an all new attempt for Gong Li. She said, "I have given my first 3D film to MONKEY 2, the film will have a lot of 3D production and fight scenes. All of which to me is fresh and curious. I believe that the production will be just like this film, full of fantasy color. I hope my White Bone Spirit will be a demon with the presence of a queen."
Reportedly, the casting of the White Bone Spirit role took a year. The producer admitted that the Gong Li's natural born queen presence was exactly like the classic demon queen White Bone Spirit. Her acting could even master this extremely challenging character.
Sing Sing in order to be at his best for his first monkey film already began to secretly train for several months before the film's official start. Gong Li has also already studied of a lot of material and began in depth study of each version of the "White Bone Spirit".
This will also be Gong Li and Sing Sing's first collaboration. Director Soi Cheang Po Shui said that this will be a battle between the most charming Sun Wukong and the White Bone Spirit with the most queen presence. The on screen battle between the handsome god and goddess will conceivably be even more entertaining than a romantic film.
