'Ah Boys To Men' 3 slated for 2015 release

Jack Neo prepares for "Ah Boys to Frogmen"

By Heidi Hsia | From Cinema Online Exclusively for Yahoo Newsroom


25 Mar – Singapore's most popular director Jack Neo has recently announced his plans to direct a spin-off of his successful "Ah Boys to Men" franchise for 2015 release.

As reported on Filmbiz Asia, the movie, titled "From Ah Boys to Frogmen", will be another joint venture between Neo's J Team Production and mm2 Entertainment.

The SGD 2.5 million (USD 1.97 million) production will tell the story of a group of navy boys (known as 'the frogmen') and their experience of undertaking vigorous military training.

It was also announced that some of the original cast of "Ah Boys to Men" will join the new project, including Tosh Zhang, Joshua Tan, and Wang Wei Liang.

The movie is scheduled for filming in August, and is slated as a 2015 Chinese New Year release.

Meanwhile, the second instalment of Neo's 2014 Chinese New Year movie hit, "The Lion Men" is in the works.

heck no.

Ah Boys to men was crap.

In terms of comedy, it was silly rather than funny, Army Daze had better comedy. In terms of drama, it never took itself seriously enough to let us care for the characters.

In terms of characters, no one is actually likeable in the cast.
The directing was mediocre.
And the special effects........yeesh they got wild boars out of an old playstation game.

No idea why Singaporeans lap up this junk rather than truly good local movies.

Ah Boys to Frogmen will go through 'hell' training for roles as naval divers

By Yip Wai Yee


Director Jack Neo will put his reunited Ah Boys To Men cast through "hell training" to play naval divers - albeit not as tough as the real deal that Singapore's special forces go through. Ah Boys To Frogmen, scheduled to start shooting in August, will put the boys in Singapore's Naval Diving Unit, where they will be seen undergoing vigorous military training.

Neo, 54, tells Life!: "The boys will definitely have to go through training to prepare themselves for their roles, and also take some courses to learn diving. It will be very challenging for sure. "Everyone always talks about how great the US Navy Seals are, so this will be a good way to show movie audiences that in Singapore, we have their equivalent.

The training required for our Naval Diving Unit is one of the toughest among all the armed forces here, so we definitely don't 'lose out' in terms of what we can do." The $2.5 million project is a spin-off of the massively popular Ah Boys To Men film, released in two parts, about a group of army recruits going through basic military training.

Ah Boys To Men Part 1 and 2 are Singapore's highest grossing films of all time: Part 1, released in November 2012, earned $6.2 million; while the second part, which premiered in February 2013, grossed $7.9 million at the box office.

Actor Wang Weiliang is among the original Ah Boys To Men cast appearing in the new film. The other confirmed names are Tosh Zhang, Joshua Tan, Maxi Lim and Noah Yap.

Says Wang, 26: "Director Neo already told us that we will have to go through 'hell training'. He hasn't provided us the details yet, just that we will be needing a lot of physical energy. It definitely won't be as easy as how it was for the Ah Boys To Men movies." As the cast may have to show quite a bit of skin in the new film, due to its naval setting, Wang is already hard at work bulking himself up.

"I was quite skinny in the Ah Boys To Men movies, so I hope to be a bit more muscular this time around and present a new image," says the actor, who now hits the gym around three times a week.

Will he have a six-pack of abs then? "I'm working very hard on that now," he says with a laugh. "I'm not afraid of the water, so it will be a lot of fun. No matter how tough it may be, I hope to do most of the stuff on my own and not with a stunt double, so that I can experience it all for myself," he says, adding that he is "very excited" about the project.

The Republic Of Singapore Navy is not financially backing the film, says Neo, but will "provide support" for various aspects of the filming process.

This is similar to the Ah Boys To Men movies, where the Ministry Of Defence gave specialist input on military matters, as well as loaned military uniforms and equipment to the production crew.

Ah Boys To Frogmen is slated for release next Chinese New Year.

The New Paper


I have a favourite T-shirt.

One reason it's my favourite is that it was given to me many years ago by a friend who has since died.

Another reason is that I think it shows off my body really well.

It has something to do with the shirt's cut and the way the fabric hugs my figure just right.

Despite its age, the shirt is still in pretty good condition.

It's well-preserved because I don't wear it often even though it's my favourite T-shirt.

And the reason I don't wear it often is that the shirt has the words "naval diver" on the back.

In front of the navy blue tee is the logo of the Naval Diving Unit (NDU) of the Singapore navy. The friend who gave me the shirt was a naval diver.

I, on the other hand, have never been a naval diver. So to wear the shirt is a bit like false advertising.

It's like imposters wearing Hard Rock Cafe T-shirts even though they're not Hard Rock Cafes. They're human beings.

To make me feel less like a fraud whenever I wear my NDU shirt, I convince myself that no one could ever mistake me for a naval diver.

For one thing, naval divers are tanned. I, on the other hand, have the pallor of a navel gazer.

Another justification for wearing the shirt is that for a few weeks during my National Service (NS), I was actually part of NDU as an underwater medical orderly trainee in Sembawang Camp.

I even took what was then called the Underwater Diving Course, swimming around in the yucky water near Sembawang Shipyard.

And I have the diver's badge to prove it - although the one I have now was bought from Beach Road to replace the original which I accidentally chipped.

But while I did some diving (and skiving) in the navy, vocationally speaking, I'm no naval diver.

If only I could find a T-shirt with the words "naval skiver" on the back.

Still, some of my closest friends from NS were naval divers and my affinity for NDU remains.

So I had mixed feelings when it was reported last week that Jack Neo's follow-up to his highly profitable Ah Boys To Men movies would be a movie about naval divers called Ah Boys To Frogmen, to be released next Chinese New Year.

But judging by Facebook comments I have read, I know of at least one former frogman whose feelings aren't so mixed - he outright hates the idea.

He is my friend, Patrick, who was a full-time naval diver for seven years.

Here's a sampling of his online rant (edited slightly for language):

"Now we're well and truly being ****ed over - again! They did it once in the 80s and we're bending over again for this idiot to make money and attract more wannabes."

He is referring to the Channel 8 drama starring Zoe Tay called Navy Series which aired in 1990.

As for the new movie, Neo reportedly said the navy is not financially backing the film, but will "provide support".

Pat's tirade continued: "I cannot express enough Hokkien, Teochew and Cantonese swear words at my disappointment with this arrangement to collaborate on this misadventure…

"We'll end up looking like Ah Kwa Peng like the rest of his *****y movies. This ******** has no clue as to what directing a movie requires. We watch his **** only because it's made in Singapore and he has always disappointed on every occasion."

Clearly, my friend is no fan of Neo's body of work but I still couldn't understand why he was so dead set against the movie

Pat explained: "Remember back in our day how little we had to work with but still accomplished the mission? Our mindset cannot be expressed by some toyboy actors over a weekend of pretend training."

Pat was apparently so incensed that he even messaged Neo directly on the film-maker's Facebook page: "Stay away from NDU!

"We'd rather remain 'the silent professionals'...

"We've worked too damn hard to earn our status for you to stuff it up. You cannot imagine what we've endured physically and mentally to earn the privilege to wear a piece of steel on our chest.

"You really want it, then you go through the whole course first YOURSELF!"

Yeah, 54-year-old Neo in a wetsuit. I don't think anyone wants to see that.

The message continued: "I'm an old-school NDU diver from the days before NSF divers came through and even did a small part in the original series with Zoe. What a waste of our time."

Pat ended his message to Neo with these parting words:

"So STAY AWAY FROM NDU. We're not here for you to make money and mockery of."

Neo hasn't responded to Pat's message and Pat doesn't expect him to.

But I should warn Neo that Pat is into martial arts and has a scary fascination with big knives.

I must remember never to let Pat catch me wearing the shirt.

A video showing the cast training for their roles in Jack Neo’s next movie, Ah Boys To Men 3: The Frogmen, has been put up on YouTube on Aug. 14, 2014.

This third movie in Neo’s Ah Boys To Men franchise will be out in 2015. It stars actors Tosh Zhang, Wang Weiliang, Joshua Tan, Maxi Lim, Charlie Goh, Bunz, Jaspers Lai and Hanrey Low.

Shot inside Sembawang Camp, the teaser offers a rare glimpse of the training grounds of the once publicity-shy Naval Diving Unit — and that legendary chin-up bar in the training shack.

Check out the video teaser:

Good thing he did not include Noah Yap this time. I feel that if he is onside, his figure is unconvincing enough to be in NDU
