Casting decisions have been made, and major roles have been announced, the Southern Metropolis Daily reports.

Other actors on board include Chow Yun-Fat (stars as the Jade Emperor of Heaven), and Peter Ho (stars as God Erlang).

The film's director is Pou-Soi Cheang, who is known for his horror epics, such as "The Death Curse" and "Gwai Muk".

'The Monkey King' 3D Holds Press Conference in Beijing





Filmko's 3D action film "The Monkey King" <大鬧天宮> (previously translated as "Havoc in Heaven") held a press conference yesterday and some of its starry leads like Chow Yun-fat, Donnie Yen, Aaron Kwok, Kelly Chen, Gigi Leung, Peter Ho, and Joe Chen all attended.

A-list actor Chow joked at the interview that he is the CEO of heaven because he plays the Jade Emperor in the film: "I rule the heaven. I'm a very important CEO." He does not really mind about money but hopes for a shorter time in applying make-up.

Playing the Monkey King in the film, Yen expressed he only gets 2-3 hours of sleep everyday, but he would try hard to provide the best to everyone. The "Ip Man" star will have romantic scenes with newcomer Xia Zi Tong (plays the Nine-tailed Fox) in the film.

Praised as the most handsome Buffalo Demon King, Kwok hopes to change people's view on this character who appears frightening and ugly usually. But it takes 3 hours to get his make-up done and the actor's skin is complaining already.

Playing his wife Princess Iron Fan in the film, Joe Chen is fortunate that she does not need to film action scenes like other people because her character is pregnant. The Taiwanese idol drama queen admires Kwok a lot and she praises him the most handsome Buffalo Demon King in the history.

Returning to the film industry after giving birth, Kelly Chen discloses she likes her role as Guan Yin in the film. Plus the filming time is not too long and she does not have to be separate away from her son for a long period.





Several costume photos of the cast were released earlier but yesterday director of the film disclosed they are not the final version. The film plans to be released in 2012.

"The Monkey King 3D" Cast:
Chow Yun-fat as Jade Emperor
Donnie Yen as Monkey King
Aaron Kwok as Buffalo Demon King
Joe Chen Qiao En as Princess Iron Fan
Xia Zi Tong as Nine-tailed Fox
Kelly Chen as Guan Yin
Cecilia Cheung as Nu Wa
Gigi Leung as Chang'e
Eddie Cheung Siu Fai as Heavenly King Li Jing
Calvin Cheng Ka Sing as Ne Zha
Him Law as Mu Zha
Peter Ho as God Erlang
Louis Fan Siu Wong as Mighty Magic Spirit
