Zhao Li Ying up for female ruler role in The Monkey King 3

The net has been burning up with this rumor all day and her studio has yet to speak up.

If true, she’ll reuniting with Aaron Kwok, who plays Monkey King, Feng Shao Shao as Shifu, Him Law as Sha Seng, and Xiao Shen Yang as Pig Demon. It’s the third part of the Monkey King franchise, following The Monkey King in 2014, and The Monkey King 2 in 2016. This part tells the story of Shifu team as they head into the all-female territory known as the Women’s Country. The queen (or should I say female ruler?) falls in love with Tang San Zang and wants to marry him. To deceive the love-stricken lady, our Shifu monk pretends to agree and again escape with Monkey King’s tricks. Unsure how the synopsis of the movie will be like.

Fanmade Still:

She looks so beautiful in this getup! GAHH.

    The director said the Ruler of women kingdom will be play by top C-movie actress so I don’t think Zhao Liying will be that lucky to catch that role. She should be someone under the ruler.

      I read that statement too after this post. Lol. She’s slowly breaking into the film industry so I don’t expect such a big role like this yet. As long as her role isn’t the Mary-Sue type, I’m okay. 😀

        Ooh, I hope she gets the role! She DOES look good in ancient costumes.
        But I have a feeling the role will go to someone like Fan Bing Bing, someone who has played a ruler before.

        Since the title is the kingdom of women, so expect more for big beautiful actress. I was hoping Zhou Xun will take that role. I heard the drama was rumored to be the the movie with most female actress of all time.

        Gong Li was cast as white bone demon in TMK2, so the top movie actress was expected for this sequel. I’m feeling like Fan Bingbing will be one of the girl.

        I hope ZLy will be cast but not the female ruler. She isn’t big enough.

    I hope this is true. We need more LY appearances. She does look pretty in ancient get-ups.

    This would be really good, but I wonder if she can start filming for it in December since she just started filming her new movie.

      She might be able to join later or film two projects at the same time, again. GAHHH. Not an option I support. T_T

    OMG! ZLY playing a seductive queen!!! I was mad when they edited those scenes out of Hus Qian Gu, now we can finally see somewhat evil Li Ying again! She always plays the “nice girl”, I wanna see her in a different role.

      Not always, she played the antagonist in “The Palace” opposite good girl Zhou Dong Yu and Chen Xiao. She was really remarkable there. I think that her ability to play different roles was what made her stood out among all other actresses.
