    Default Donnie as Qiao Feng

    What do people think?

    After the debacle of Wong Jing's Heaven Sword Dragon Sabre, I am really worried about this.

    It all comes down to the writing and directing. There's certainly nothing particularly wrong about casting Donnie as Kiu Fung.

    So long as he doesn't start screaming in a high pitch or throwing some Wing Chun moves

    Donnie isn't Bruce Lee (though he's played him and Bruce's old roles before). Moreover, how do we know that Kiu Fung *didn't* scream in a high pitch or used Wing Chun-like moves?

    Qiao Feng Taekwondo'ing his way through the movie sounds interesting though.

    I am pretty excited about this movie actually. The big screen has never seen a Qiao Feng (I think they did one in the 80s using much of the same cast as DGSD 82/83?) but I cant get hold of that one.

    But I get why some find it odd, its hard to get an actor looking like how JY describes XF. Not many Chinese actors have a Thor body plus the height plus the beard.

    I think JY himself said Hu Jun came the closest. That was probably partly because he was physically the largest of all the screen XFs.

    If you can find it on youtube, there is an interview with Hu Jun and picture of him drinking with JY. He recalled he was so proud when Mrs. JY was telling her husband to drink less and JY told his wife "I am drinking with MY Qiao Feng".

    I don't quite like Hu Jun's acting though. I think Donnie and Felix and Bryan Leung are better (not in looks but in acting QF). Felix is probably the best in terms of showing the pain.

    Heck. We just want to see Donnie at Ju Xian Manor anyhow.

    Only problem is Wong Jing. If it was Johnny To or Wong Kar Wai or Tsui Hark I be so much happier.
    Its BIxie Jianfa Gawdammit you guys!!!!
