This is gonna be great. Stephen Chow is a huge fan of Bruce Lee, he self-trained martial art since he was a kid because of Lee, and also part of the reason why he got into this industry. It's amazing how dream and determination can make you achieve what seems impossible to others.

Seth Rogen? I wonder what direction this movie will go. CJ7 was really weird.

Self trained martial artist since he was a kid?
Wasn't he saying in the kung-fu hustle featurette how amazing CG and wirework were because he could act in martial arts movies with only a few weeks of training for each and not knowing anything about martial arts?

The guy sure likes to contradict himself, but I'm still looking forward to this.

Maybe I should elaborate what I said, ever since Stephen was a kid, he's a huge fan of Bruce Lee, but his family was poor, he can't afford to watch every Bruce Lee's movie. Which is why he often work part time in restaurant to earn some tips so that he can go watch his idol's movie. This also caused him skip school so that he can go practice martial art, and to be like Bruce Lee.

Like a lot of asian kid, Stephen likes to practice martial art at home, but very amaturish. In other word, Stephen's not a professional martial artist like Jet Lee, but he can do high kicks and mimic some moves. If you (jaco) gonna say Stephen likes to contradict himself, I'd say it's probably my fault to made it look that way, if anyone's contradicting, it's me, sorry :bowdown:

Good thing we're both looking forward to this new movie. :thumbsup:
