CREDIT IF REPOSTED

The cameras for Soi Cheang's new 3D movie, "The Monkey King", have already started rolling last month in Beijing. It was announced in early October that Chow Yun Fat, Aaron Kwok, Joe Chen, and Peter He were going to join Donnie Yen in the $400 million RMB production. Yesterday, Kelly Chen, Cecilia Cheung, and Gigi Leung were also announced to join.

Kelly Chen will be taking on the role of the Goddess of Mercy in "The Monkey King", and she has decided to donate her film salary to charity. Kelly will be donating her seven-figure film salary to Kelly Chen Children Education Fund. She said, "When I found out that I was going to play the Goddess of Mercy, my first thought was the hope that I can be like the Goddess of Mercy and help people in need. Thus, I hope to donate all of the salary from this movie to help society's children in need".

Confirmed cast:

Donnie Yen as The Monkey King
Chow Yun Fat as The Jade Emperor
Aaron Kwok as The Bull Demon King
Cecilia Cheung as Nüwa
Kelly Chen as The Goddess of Mercy
Gigi Leung as Chang'e
Peter He as The God Erlang
Joe Chen as The Iron Fan Princess
Liu Ye as The Dragon King of the Eastern Sea
Eddie Cheung as Li Jing
Louis Fan as The Mighty Magic Spirit
Hai Yi Tian as Puti Zushi
Li Jing as The Green Monkey King
Monica Mok
Wang Yuen Yuen
Him Law
Calvin Cheng

Personal Note: Kelly was only a guest star in "72 Tenants of Prosperity", so this will her be first movie with major role after giving birth to Chace, and she will be working with Donnie again. :)
