The Stephen Chow Sing Chi directed JOURNEY TO THE WEST: CONQUERING THE DEMONS (SAI YAU GONG MOR PIN) two years ago made 1.2 billion RMB in the Mainland during the Lunar New Year. The film will make a sequel with famous director Tsui Hark at the helm and Sing Yeh as the producer. With the momentum of the first film and two film industry giants, the film has already caught attention before it even started production.
Online rumors claimed that the film already had its sight on two actors, "One is a top young actor who was born in 1988 and the other is a former EXO member". Some said that the one who was born in 1988 was Lin Gengxin who has worked with Tsui Hark on THE TAKING OF TIGER MOUNTAIN and popular former EXO member Kris Wu.
