On the other hand, Andy Lau will join the cast, however, the role has not yet been determined but it was reported that Andy will play an important role in the sequel. It was also reported that the roles of Jay's four master in Kung Fu Dunk has been neglected and their appearance on-screen has been significantly cut due to time constraint.

* ) Initial E, yours is more professionally written and very clear:) This is a good one. I got it from my friend who helped me translate from Jay2u news..cos' i can't really read Chinese. U r but sad to know that Jay will not be the only main star...just wondering if their screen time is equal...anyways, it is still long way to go b4 we can see Jay on the big screen again.

btw, hv u gone into the CCTV online poll to cast ur vote for Jay?

* ) In the last movie, the 4 great masters played by Huang Bo, Ng Man Tat and the others were cheered by the audience, their strange kung fu combined with basketball moves were very fresh, but in reality the screen time of the 4 great masters was not just that little bit at the end, but due to time constraints they had to cut out a lot of good scenes, Huang Bo and the rest felt very helpless about it.

But according to disclosures, they will "make it up" to Huang Bo and the others in the new movie, the producers will greatly increase the screen time of the 4 great masters, they will become a bright spot of the film. Yesterday Huang Bo accepted a phone interview with reporters and expressed that he had already been in contact with the producers, but they haven't got to a definite stage yet.

In the last movie, Jay Chou was sponsored by Deerhui for all the sports gear and they will continue to collaborate with this movie, they will create new sports clothes for this movie. When reporters were interviewing Deerhui personnel they found out, the movie will have even more stars than the last one, besides Eric Tsang, Jay Chou won't be the only main star anymore, Andy Lau will be joining the movie, he will become a very important person.
