Hong Kong sci-fi film X-Men

The witty schoolboy in Stephen Chow's comedy "CJ7" will play the daughter of Andy Lau in a Hong Kong sci-fi film on the lines of "X-Men."

Eleven-year-old actress Xu Jiao, who played a boy in her silver-screen debut "CJ7," will join Andy Lau and Barbie Hsu in Wong Jing's "Future Cop," the director told Beijing News on Tuesday.

The new film tells the story of a police officer in the year 2085, who travels back in time to 2008 to save his kidnapped daughter.

"At the end of next year, movie-goers will see a film with a style very similar to 'X-Men'," Wong, who also wrote the screenplay for the film, said.

The film will employ the same team that did special effects for the latest Batman movie, "The Dark Knight," Wong added.
