The Huayi Brothers, who were behind the legendary Kung Fu Hustle, have a planned trilogy of steampunk action films in the works, the first of which is titled Tai Chi 0. The story is about a gifted child with a fleshy growth on his forehead who travels far to learn Tai Chi and eventually becomes a master. He then faces an army of steampunk invaders to protect the villagers.

The film will be directed by Stephen Fung with the action choreographed by Sammo Hung (Ip Man, Kung Fu Hustle). Apparently shooting has already completed and the scripts for the second and third films are already underway. The first film has a tentative release sometime in early 2013 and has already pre-sold over 30 countries.
