The film Shaolin Soccer by Hong Kong comedy actor and director Chow Xing Chi (Stephen Chow) is to hit American cinemas this week.
In an interview with American reporters, the director says he has always dreamt of shooting a kungfu movie.
In the film, he has tried to combine many elements together, including soccer, a love story and a comedy to make people not only laugh but love it.
He says though known as an actor, he really enjoyed the experience of directing. He looks forwards to shooting films in the United States and working with American filmmakers.
