         Actor, Action Choreographer

                                                                      

                                            Kung fu star John Chang was regularly seen in 1970's and 80's films for

                                      Shaw Brothers and Goldig Films. Playing villains and heroes, Chang's skills were 

                                     showcased in such films as The 36th Chamber of Shaolin starring Gordon Lau 

                                   Kar Fei, Two Wondrous Tigers with Ko Fei and Sharon Yeung Pan Pan, Duel of 

                                          the Brave Ones with Wilson Tong, and Writing Kung Fu with Bolo Yeung.

 

                                 John Chang Wu Lang's career has sometimes developed parallel with Jackie Chan's.

                                        In 1972, before either was established, he and Jackie played a pair of thugs in 

                                   Police Woman. A few years later, Jackie starred in his breakout films Snake in the

                                      Eagle's Shadow and Drunken Master. One of the many imitations it spawned  

                                         was Snake in the Monkey's Shadow, with John Chang in the starring role 

                                                                    opposite frequent co-star Wilson Tong.  

                                       In the 1980's, John played villains in Jackie's films Project A, Project A II, and 

                                           Police Story 2. He also appeared in Winners and Sinners and Miracles.  

 

                                       John Chang has also dabbled in Western productions. He was in Shaw Brothers'

                                  HK/USA co-production Cleopatra Jones and the Casino of Gold, and later showed

                                         up in a couple of Van Damme movies, but his biggest appearance was in the 

                                  Bruce Lee bio-pic Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story, where he fought Jason Scott Lee. 

 

                                        In 2000 John assembled an eclectic HK cast for Treasure Hunter, an aquatic

                                                                action film he produced, directed, and acted in.
