"Hot Mom" Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi finally confirmed her comeback film to be the Lunar New Year film ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL 2011 (JUI KEUNG HEI SI). Raymond Wong Pak Ming would tailor the character for her and team her up with box office guarantee Donnie Yen Chi Tan and Louis Koo Tin Lok as well as Carina Lau Ka Ling as two comedic couples. Her salary even took a great leap forward as she would make 10 million for a dozen or some days of work.
Reportedly Wong Pak Ming was able to land Pak Chi because his Lunar New Year films have always been popular. Light comedic Lunar New Year film was a very suitable genre for Pak Chi as a mother. With such a strong cast, the film would be a rather safe bet for the first shot of Pak Chi's comeback. The fact was Yen Chi Tan, Koo Tin Lok and Lau Ka Ling had high box office draw in the Mainland, conceivably they would be very helpful to Pak Chi's return to the Mainland market.
Since Pak Chi just decided to join the cast, Wong Pak Ming has already ordered for a script re-write to tailor a character for her. For now Yen Chi Tan and Lau Ka Ling would be a pair and Pak Chi would have a romantic link with Koo Tin Lok.
Wong Pak Ming said, "Indeed it's true! (Does Pak Chi have any special request?) No, she has been great. She didn't mention any special request or that she wouldn't leave Hong Kong. She has been very reasonable. (How did you move her?) I think it was sincerity and the good team. (Would Pak Chi's son perform?) We never discussed this!"
Reportedly although Pak Chi did not have any special request, she asked to attend only one premiere in Hong Kong and in the Mainland and would not follow the promotional tour. Conceivably she did not want to leave her sons for too long. The team has been very understanding and willing to accommodate.
