There are movies that deserve a sequel and there are those that don’t. But Jet Li‘s 1993 wuxia classic, Kung Fu Cult Master, certainly deserves so much more so hurray for fans of the movie because the story will finally be continued!
Prolific film director, Wong Jing, announced the news AND drops a poster with the caption, “I am going to film the new Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber movie. Zhang Wuji finally goes to Dadu to find Zhao Min.” His words are in reference to the cliffhanger ending from the original where Jet Li is off to find Sharla Cheung‘s Zhao Min to rescue the missing members of the six sects.
See? That kind of ending is screaming for a part two! The 1993 film is adapted from the popular Jin Yong novel The Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber so many are already familiar with how the story goes, yet it doesn’t change the fact that many clamour for this version to be finished. Sadly, despite having a star-studded cast that included the likes of Chingmy Yau, Gigi Lai, Sammo Hung and Francis Ng, Kung Fu Cult Master did not do well at the box office thus cancelling any plans of sequel at that time and leaving all the fans in dread.
So even though it’s over two decades late, I’m glad they’re continuing this, I know two people who would be over the moon about this (me and my dad)! Although, it’ll probably be a Christmas miracle to see the old cast back so we can expect new ones. As long as Jet Li is in it in some way, I’m up for it!
OMG!!! BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT EVER!!! AAAAAHHHHH!!
Gosh.. The actresses those days, their beauty is just different. So classically beautiful. The young Sharla Cheung is really breathtakingly beautiful and she was so divine in full white. I have watched this movie many times and loving it at every single watch.
I feel SO bad for people who were in their 80s or so when they watched the first film. They were probably like, "There HAS to be a sequel!" and waited for a good 10+ years, but no sign of it. Then suddenly: their wish is finally granted! BUT, guess what guys? They're not on Earth anymore ….. so they can't watch it after all. Oops.
Omaigad, finally. I watched this when I was 5 years old. Gah, hope they can bring the old cast eventhough they aren't the lead.
I'm so glad this is finally getting its sequel! Although I don't see how the old cast can return though… no amount of makeup can erase 25+ years of aging??
I love this! The cast is just amazing! I read that a sequel was already shot but wasn'trreleased because the 1st didn't do well.
I would love to just watch what was already shot! Really!!
Already know the new casts will not be amazing…for example HSDS drama new casts were bad and also, MXH for upcoming XLN is just not a good fit
The old casts are now older and cannot and should not act as 20 year olds. Gigi Kai is still very beautiful, but even I can tell that she is no longer 20's. If the movie was already produced back then, then go ahead and release it in Cantonese with their original voices. Otherwise, they should just do a remake with new people and make sure the new people sign on for two movies so they can films the sequel immediately after
Thinking about this, this should be a remake instead of a sequel as there's no way the cast will be the same, imo. Most likely be full of cgi and none of the magic from the prior stellar cast. =(
Even if it's call a continuation.
LOL, hearing this is funny because the first movie was made WAY before I was born, lol (like more than ten years before my birth) ….. so I can't really relate. But maybe my parents know something about it? I'll be sure to tell them about this news.
Thank God finally….. Waiting for the sequel all my life…..
When is the release date?
Come on man, the original casts are already looking like pensions. I am one of those dude who got left hanging…… Zhang min’s (real name) beauty and cunniliciousness left me in dire erection that never had a chance to ejaculate. .. for 27yrs… still waiting…and stiff lol…. But seriously, i agree with above comment. Her classic beauty is unmatched…. joey wong is amazing in Chinese Ghost Story don’t get me wrong, Maggie Cheung is super cute in Police Story don’t get me wrong, and even Michelle Reis Li Chia Xin will go down as them most beautiful Asian ever don’t get me wrong. But Sharla/ZhangMin… her magic, in those Manchurian spoil princess wardrobes….. is on ANOTHER LEVEL…. her smart cunning beauty seduction super charming kungfu skill (in the movie), is just breathtaking, she’s the Dough…… It’s just a shame the sequel didn’t come out in 1996, cos her playful wit and unexpected moves will dazzle and make fan like me jealous of Jet Li, who is clearly oblivious he da lucky Dick…. the magic of this movie is her. and of course the entire setting back then was OG. PLease don’t use CGI wong jing, it will totally be just …animated. No more magic at all…. If the job of an actor is to leave audience in the dust of a curiosity of what’s to come next, yearning for more…. i think Zhang Min has done an epic job of it…… Applause
The longest wait for a sequel in the entire movie history…….
It’s not a sequel…. Wtf… 😭😭😭
It’s entirely new movie,man that’s so awkward to watch….
You can’t replace Jet Li with some stiff actor…
N also they replace chingmy with some childish character..
N even worse Sharla character now has no dignity n arrogance as a princess.
Goddddd…. Twenty f*cking nine years waiting for shit like this…
