Stephen Chow is producing it though… :/ If anybody can make it work it would be him.
Hardly. Tim Van Rellim is the executive producer with Rich Thorne co-producing. Neither is known for particularly great films. Stephen Chow is not writing or directing the movie and everything I've seen suggests he was only brought on board to oversee the selection of foreign “talent”. The writer seems to be one of the most random choices I've seen for a movie in years and the director is freaking James Wong. It'll be a miracle if the movie is worth two shits. The production story for this movie reads like the producers, I just don't see how you can accidentally screw things up this bad.
