The cameras for Soi Cheang Pou Soi's new 3D movie "The Monkey King" have already started rolling last month in Beijing. It was announced in early October that Chow Yun Fat, Aaron Kwok, Joe Chen, and Peter He were going to join Donnie Yen in the $400 million RMB production. Yesterday, Kelly Chen, Cecilia Cheung, and Gigi Leung were also announced to join.
Kelly Chen will be taking on the role of the Goddess of Mercy in "The Monkey King", and she has decided to donate her film salary to charity. Kelly will be donating her seven-figure film salary to "Kelly Chen Children Education Fund". She said, "When I found out that I was going to play the Goddess of Mercy, my first thought was the hope that I can be like the Goddess of Mercy and help people in need. Thus, I hope to donate all of the salary from this movie to help society's children in need".
