The Hong Kong Animation and Comic Book Convention opened today. The film STORM WARRIORS (FUNG WON II) will be officially released at the end of the year. With Tin Ha Publishing's 20th anniversary this year, STORM RIDERS original creator Ma Wing Sing created a hand drawn poster for STORM WARRIORS. The film company created a live person version of the hand drawn poster, 1,000 limited editions will be available at the event.
Reportedly Ma Wing Sing completed the initial draft in May. When the special poster was shot in June, Ma Wing Sing visited the set and personally observed Aaron Kwok Fu Sing and Dior Cheng Yi Kin. He praised the duo as the only choices for his Bo Gaing Wan and Nip Fung. Thus when the Pang Brothers wanted to make STORM WARRIORS he stipulated that they had to continue to play these two characters. Sing Sing and Ekin both expressed that running into each other again to play the same role ten years later was truly destiny.
