But we digress.
We relayed the good news to Neo, who told Mothership that he is "very happy" to hear about it.
He also had this to say:
"I hope that he can watch some of my other movies when he has time.
My recommendations are 'Money No Enough', 'Ah Boys To Men' (ABTM) and 'Ah Girls Go Army' (AGGA)."
Wang, if you're reading this, the sequel to the last movie is still showing in cinemas, and you can catch it if you're still in Singapore.
Quick recap of the movies mentioned
"I Not Stupid" was released in 2002 and is arguably one of the best local productions.
It was especially well-regarded for its tongue-in-cheek criticism of Singapore's education system and social-cultural stereotypes at the time.
1998's "Money No Enough" is the movie that is said to have launched Neo's career as a director -- and proved that made-in-Singapore productions could be profitable -- as critics hailed it for its satirical take on Singaporean culture.
The next two movies on Neo's list, 2012's ABTM and 2022's AGGA probably need no introduction -- the former, which revolves around the lives of army recruits serving their mandatory National Service, has been so successful that it's spawned three sequels and a spin-off.
On that note, if Neo is still conceptualising his next movie, and since Wang wants to give acting a shot, would a Jack x Jackson (Jack²?) collaboration be too much to ask for?
