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."
