Sammo Hung, 69, Makes Acting Comeback In HK Movie, Says It’s Because He Has “No Money”

Martial arts legend Sammo Hung is making his acting comeback after a four-year hiatus.

The 69-year-old, who has been mostly wheelchair-bound since undergoing knee surgery in 2017, is starring in action thriller Kowloon Walled City alongside Louis Koo, Richie Ren and Raymond Lam.

The lensing ceremony for the movie was held in Hongkong recently and Sammo made an appearance. According to reports, the actor looked healthy despite needing a cane to walk.

When asked why he decided to make a return to the big screen, he bellowed: “No money! The most important thing is the production team is willing to pay me!"

Jokes aside, the veteran actor said he wanted to be part of this project as films about Hongkong featuring a full Hongkong cast are rare these days.
