We’re Crazy About:

Last Message: Filming has already begun for Mr Go 3D (미스터 고 3D), a sports comedy based on a popular manhwa (Korean comic) by Heo Yeong-man – his other works has also been adapted for Le Grand Chef. The story is about a gorilla from a Chinese circus that is trained to play professional baseball in Korea. Budget at $20 million, the ambitious live action film is being shot in stereoscopic 3-D and will utilize a combination of motion capture performances and digital effects à la Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
The film will be directed by Kim Yong-hwa who previously helmed 200 Pounds Beauty and Take Off. Josie Xu (aka Xu Jiao), the young actress from CJ7 and Starry Starry Night, will play the lead role as a Chinese-Korean girl who befriends the sport-savvy primate.
