The astonishing news came from the Mainland China and Hong Kong movie industries. Kung Fu Hustle 2 , which is the sequel to the first movie , is reportedly in development for a release in the next few years.
In 2019, Stephen Chow , who starred in the first movie, said in an interview that he would return to direct and only appear as a cameo. The story will not be connected directly from the story of the first movie.
In fact, there is a possibility that Kung Fu Hustle 2 will take place in the modern era. Over time, the issue evaporated until recently, a poster circulated which successfully shocked movie lovers around the world.
The poster features the iconic ax and candy from the first Kung Fu Hustle movie. A number of netizens, who are fans of this movie and its actors, immediately expressed their excitement through their respective social media.
Although many were enthusiastic and hopeful, some fans actually questioned the veracity of the poster. The reason is that Columbia Pictures movie Production Asia and Star Overseas, who are working on this movie, have yet to open their voices.
No wonder some of the fans who have been waiting for the sequel to Kung Fu Hustle for 18 years think that the poster is just a fan art.
Netizens’ Variety of Reactions
We can find various expressions on social media. Including Twitter residents who always convey their impressions bluntly.
Expected Year 2025
Despite all these reactions and speculations, there are allegations that Kung Fu Hustle 2 will arrive in theaters in 2025. It is not clear whether this is true or just a figment.
Stephen Chow originally intended to continue Kung Fu Hustle with plans to shoot in 2005, a year after the release of the first movie. Unfortunately because he was busy with other projects, the production of this movie was delayed. We’ll just have to wait for it to develop.
