Expect to see Tony Leung and Zhou Xun pair up and Jay Chou partnering Andy Lau in this magic fever
Are actors turning into magicians?
It sure looks so with five upcoming films on magic set to start production next year. One of which to look out for - Big Magician, with Tony Leung, Lau Ching-Wan and Zhou Xun joining forces with The Shinjuku Incident director Derek Yee.
Another interesting line-up would be Secret 2, where Andy Lau will be featured in Jay Chou's self-directed sequel.
We can also expect to see Aaron Kwok and Tony Leung Ka-Fai team up for Magical Illusion. Stephen Fung will be also be directing and acting in his own movie on enchantment early next year.The magic fever started when Taiwanese magician Louis Liu's performance in China became a countrywide sensation, causing film makers to jump onto the money train. The magician will also be featured in one film with Shawn Yue.
Sounds good to me!
