Shaolin Soccer Sequel

Shaolin-Soccer-2When most people in this neck of the woods hear the name Stephen Chow, they usually think of his hit film “Kung-Fu Hustle”. However, I would submit that Kung-Fu Hustle pales in comparison to his slightly earlier masterpiece… SHAOLIN SOCCER!

Shaolin Soccer was a brilliant film and throughly entertaining an just about every single level. Some great visual effects, solid to the nones action, and most notably it was funny as hell. Brilliant work by Chow, and it’s a shame more people haven’t seen it. You really have to try to get your hands on it.

Word is now coming out that Chow is working on a direct sequel… but this time it involves Lacrosse? The good folks over at Movies Online give us the following:

According to Ryuganji, Shibasaki plays Rin, who returns to Japan after undergoing nine years of training in order to take over her grandfather’s Shaolin kung-fu dojo in China and ends up helping out a sport science university’s lacrosse team. Of course some of Chow’s regulars will be on board as well including Lam Tze Chung and Kai Man Tin.

Sign me up! Now if I can only convince Stephen Chow to come on up to Canada and make a “Shaolin Hockey” my life would be complete.
