Chow called the movie's US$17.1 million (€14.0 million) box office take in America as of Aug. 18 "not bad," but said, "I hope I can do better in the future."
Chow said casting for the Kung Fu Hustle sequel hasn't been finalized and that he hasn't settled on a female lead.
"There will be a lot of new characters in the movie. We'll need a lot of new actors. It's possible that we'll look for people abroad besides casting locals," he said.
