Tony Leung Chiu Wai after completing THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JUNG SI) flew to Shanghai for the Alan Mak Siu Fai and Felix Chong Man Keung directed new film WIND SEEKER (TING FUNG JEH)'s costume fitting and preparing for the official shoot in a few days. Wai Jai this time will play a 50s special agent who due to visual impairment had sharp hearing and other abilities. He and female lead Zhou Xun will have a complicated relationship.
Wai Jai earlier at the costume fitting studied the eye make up with Mak Siu Fai. He accepted the suggestion without any hesitation and put on special white contact lenses. Mak Siu Fai was rather touched. "He has never worn contact lenses and expected them to be tough. His electrifying eyes are well known. What am I going to do if something happens to them. In the film he also has a surgery scene that returns his sight. Right now we are still studying how to shoot it. (Did you buy insurance for him?) The film company will take care of that."
Mak Siu Fai honestly said that after enjoying the Emperor Motion Picture THE MESSAGE he was very interested in spy films. Coincidentally this time a film company bought the rights to THE MESSAGE novelist Mai Jia's other book DECRYPT and approached him to collaborate. Aside from Wai Jai and Zhou Xun, Mainland actor Wang Xuebing who rose due to the television series CHERISH OUR LOVE FOREVER will also join the cast. The production has been slated to complete before Christmas.
