Also in The Fantastic Waterbabes is director Stephen Fung Tak-lun, who is filling up his time with acting while waiting for his own films to get the green light.

At Wednesday's press conference, Fung confirmed that a Hollywood company had bought the remake rights for his kung-fu action film Enter the Phoenix. However, he is not holding his breath waiting for the project to go into production in the immediate future.

'Look at remakes of The Eye and Infernal Affairs; it always takes them a long time to actually make the movie,' he said.

Fung and the production company have not discussed whether he will have any involvement in the remake - whether in front of or behind the camera. 'So far, no one has asked me about that or any details about the movie,' he said.
