The boy in Stephen Chow’s CJ7 is actually…

..a girl ?! O_O

After watching the trailer (click here),  he, or rather, she really looks/behave (in the movie) like a boy (!).

I’m so excited as the release date for this movie is just about 3 months away, can’t wait to see it on M’sian cinema next Chinese New Year…

Hong Kong comic star-director Stephen Chow’s new movie “Yangtze River VII” has gained him something special — the sense of fatherhood.

Science fiction “Yangtze River VII” centers on the love between father and son. Stephen Chow takes the lead, traveling to the outer space with the help of a spaceship named “Yangtze River VII.”

Xu Jiao, a 9-year-old little girl from the Chinese mainland, was chosen to play the son, also an alien from outer space. Winning much acclaims from the director, she has signed an 8-year contract with the film company founded by the comic star.

Stephen Chow confessed that the new film shows his long-time respect for US director Steven Spielberg. That’s why the plot of “Yangtze River VII” echoes works of his such as “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” (1977) and “E.T” (1982).

The China Film Group Corporation, which is in charge of the movie’s promotion, announced that the movie will be brought to the big screen in January 2008, as part of the nation’s New Year lineup.

    • I was overwhelmed by the truth that the boy who starred in this movie is actually a GIRL. I cannot identify it. However, she stars beautifully.

  1. Awesome movie. It’s such a sweet, heart-warming film and I’d give it 5 stars personally.
    It’s funny. sweet, and action-packed.

    Xu Jiao is such a talented little actress. She had me convinced that she was actually a he in real life.
    Well, boy/Girl roles , whatever she’s a promising young rising star with a bright future ahead of her.
    And Dickie’s so cute.

  2. Know what ? That Dickie’s actually a girl in real-life? No worries about it. I just found out that too.

    p.s. CJ7 is the absolute cutest!
