If you’re a fan of the legendary Sammo Hung (The Bodyguard), get ready to be happy, because the Hong Kong legend has started shooting The Return of Lucky Stars, an upcoming follow up to the classic Golden Harvest series that peaked with 1983’s Five Lucky Stars, 1985’s My Lucky Stars and Twinkle, Twinkle Twinkle Lucky Stars. In fact, production photos have popped up online and show Hung in his trademark 70s/80s haircut.
According to AFS, Eddie Peng (Operation Mekong), Tony Leung Ka Fai (League of Gods), Qi Wei (Manhunt) and Chin Siu Ho (Vampire Cleanup Department) are among the confirmed cast members, while Mark Chao (Young Detective Dee), Ni Yan (True Legend) and Tiffany Tang (Chronicles of the Ghostly Tribe) are rumored.
We expect to hear more cast announcements soon (hopefully many from the previous Stars’ films). Until then, enjoy the Trailer for Five Lucky Stars:
