Film makers from China and the United States are aiming to stun the audience with a 3D production "Journey to the West" out of the classic Chinese story of the same tittle.

This was announced at a launch ceremony in Beijing on Wednesday, April 15.

Based on the 1986 TV series "Journey to the West", the movie will be jointly produced by Paramount Pictures and three Chinese production companies.

According to Ke Liming, Executive Director of Ruyi Films, one of the Chinese co-producers, the film will keep much of the TV scenario with Chinese actors starring the main characters.

Vice Chairman of Paramount Pictures, Rob Moore, says given the fact that the Monkey King, the hero of the movie, and the story itself are already popular among the audiences around the world, Paramount Pictures will make the movie a sensation with state-of-the-art techniques.

Some of the special effects seen in "Transformers" and "Terminator 6" will be used in the movie.

Liuxiaolingtong, whose real name is Zhang Jinlai, is a household name in China for his starring of the Monkey King. He said at the launch event that the 3D movie will be a perfect blend of oriental art and Western high-technology. It is also a good opportunity to promote Chinese culture.

The movie will start shooting late this year and be released some time in 2016.
