Steven Chow has got to be flying pretty high right now. With the box office success, and DVD sales, of Kung Fu Hustle, I guess it was only a matter of time before a studio shouts 'We want more Steven Chow.' So what's next from the guy they call a mix between Bruce Lee and Buster Keaton?

Shaolin Baseball? Shaolin Hockey? What?

Kung Fu Hustle 2 Gets Sony

Though it is unknown whether Sony is financing all or only part of Steven Chow's upcoming project, it is still certain that Kung Fu Hustle 2 has been given the greenlight. Check out this report from MonkeyPeaches:

According to the Taiwanese media, filming of the sequel to Kung Fu Hustle will begin in Shanghai this September or October and will complete by the yearend. Almost everyone, including Stephen Chow himself, Lam Tse-Chung (Chow's sidekick), Yuen Qiu (the Landlady) and Yuen Wah (the Landlord), will reappear in the sequel. Even Chan Kwok-Kwan, whose character died in the first film, will return with a new character. However, Huang Shengyi, who played the female lead, is currently trying to leave Steven Chow's agency and her chance of returning to the sequel is quite small. The action will still be handled by Yuen Wo-Ping and there will be more action sequences in the sequel. The budget is about US$ 15 million and part of it comes from Sony Pictures.

Since every film from the mind of Steven Chow seems to have a high enjoyability factor, we say bring on the Hustle again!
