31 Jan – The first and second "Cicakman" movies in the famous local superhero franchise was produced only by KRU Studios, but for the third instalment, KRU Studios has joined forces with Grand Brilliance and Astro Shaw to produce the mega movie that everyone has been waiting for.
With the combined effort from the country's three biggest production studios, also comes two directors helming the project; original director Yusry Abdul Halim joined by Ghaz Abu Bakar.
Co-director Ghaz said it is rare for a Malaysian film to be helmed by two directors. "Having two directors working on one film doesn't happen often in Malaysia. However, "Cicakman 3" is a big production and it justifies the need of having two directors."
"Yusry and I often bounce ideas off each other during scriptwriting, storyboarding, while on set, and the end result is very satisfactory."
Actor Zizan Razak stars in the titular role, replacing Saiful Apek who played Cicakman in the previous two movies. Zizan is joined by the likes of Lisa Surihani, Fizz Fairuz, Bell Ngasri, Azizah Mahzan, Rashidi Ishak, Adam Corrie and Rykarl Iskandar.
"Cicakman 3" will be released this coming 12 March.
