Further to our story last October, some new pics of the cast of Benny Chan’s new action movie Shaolin Temple have appeared over on Chinese site CRI. Along with that comes news of some unexpected production problems. You’d imagine that making an action movie about Shaolin monks (including a stellar cast including Jackie Chan, Andy Lau, Nicholas Tse, Wu Jing and Fan Bingbing) and given permission to film on location at a real Shaolin monastery, would be any HK directors dream come true. Not it seems if you’re Mr Chan. According to CRI, the constant stream of tourists visiting the shrine, plus the worry of damaging the ancient structures has rather put Chan off the idea of filming there any longer. So instead he decided to up sticks and have a full size replica of the temple built, costing an eye watering US$1.47 million. Worth every penny we say! Shaolin is set to open later in the year. On to the stills at the link.
