Stephen Chow and Tsui Hark are in talks to collaborate for a Journey to the West sequel, for Alibaba Pictures.

Alibaba is already investing Stephen Chow's The Mermaids, and Wong Kar Wai is said to produce Alibaba's debut film.

Vicki Zhao and her husband recently bought a $400 million stake in the company.

Chow and Hark are planning to shoot in August, and release in time for the 2017 Lunar New Year with a $64 million budget.

They hope to keep the original stars, Huang Bo and Shu Qi.

YAY here this film esp if Shu Qi is coming back... but I wonder how that would happen considering what happened at the end of the first one.
