TAIPEI (Taiwan News) -- Chu Ke-liang's last movie "Hanky Panky," is rereleased in theaters during the Dragon Festival holiday.

The producer decided to rerelease the movie after thousands of Chu's fans launched a campaign that calls for the movie to come back to theaters.

"Hanky Panky" was Chu's self-made Chinese New Year movie, as well as his last bow on the silver screen, which he was reportedly closely followed the box-office returns while he was in the hospital.

Recently, members of Taiwan's film industry have gathered signatures for a petition to award Chu a lifetime achievement award at the next Golden Horse Awards — the Chinese-language equivalent of the Oscars.

Director of "Hanky Panky" Huang Chao-liang supports the move, saying: "Chu deserves this because during his career, each of his films attracted so many people who wouldn't have watched movies otherwise. This was one of his greatest achievements."
