We knew that it couldn't last, that things were going too well. The news arrived and we are devastated: Huayi Brother's president, Wang Zhong Lei, says that, Stephen Chow's upcoming movie, Kung Fu Hustle will not be handled by Columbia Pictures, which co-produced the movie. The North American distribution rights have been sold to Miramax! "...and Miramax has promised us that it will be released nationwide, rather than in arthouse theatres only." Ok, you can say it: I told you so!
Damn, well hopefully Miramax will only distribute in North America then and leave the HK release well alone.
Edit: Good news, read below.
