Stephen Chow (Kung Fu Hustle, CJ7) has a new film on the horizon:  Journey To The West (aka A Chinese Odyssey).  The comedic fantasy actioner is currently scheduled for release across the big blue next month.  Chow unfortunately doesn’t star this time, but the fact that he wrote and co-directed it is more than enough to pique my interest…as is the this trailer:

I’m not sure what I just watched, but as a fan of Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle, I definitely like what I’m seeing here.  The film doesn’t have U.S. distribution yet, but here’s hoping it get scooped up soon and we get to see it sometime this year.
