Chan to produce 'Incredible Couple'

Kung-fu comedy stars Sandra Ng, Louis Koo

BEIJING -- Peter Chan Ho Sun will produce director Vincent Kok's comedic action picture "Incredible Couple," about ancient Chinese husband and wife superheroes drawn out of retirement into a martial arts competition.

"It's 'Mr. & Mrs Smith' meets 'The Incredibles' in the Qing dynasty," said Katherine Lee, executive vp of We Pictures, the Hong Kong-based company leading the start of the $7.5 million production in China in March.

The film stars Hong Kong's "Queen of Comedy" Sandra Ng and compatriot Louis Koo as the couple who retire from crime fighting to open a village restaurant. The picture will shoot on location and at the Hengdian World Studios outside Shanghai, Lee told The Hollywood Reporter.

Director Kok's last project was the 2009 Lunar New Year hit comedy "All's Well That Ends Well," also starring Ng and Koo.
