It’s been six years since we last saw Stephen Chow on the big screen. Co-starring in the E.T.-inspired CJ7, it appeared the famed Hong Kong action star had “gone soft,” straying slightly away from the well choreographed cartoon chaos of Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle to channel his inner Spielberg. Fans still found something to enjoy, earning Chow the status of an able auteur. Since then, however, he’s been relatively inactive. Sure, he’s functioned as a producer on a few films, as well as writing one called Jump. But we’ve missed him as a presence on movie screens everywhere. Well, don’t expect Journey to the West to change that. Functioning as Producer, Director, Screenwriter, and Action Choreographer, Chow (along with help from co-director Derek Kwok) has apparently hung up his star shoes…at least, for the time being.
