Aaron Kwok Fu Sing, Chin Kar Lok and Gordon Lam Ka Tung yesterday attended a Hong Kong Asian Film festival 2012 press conference. Their film COLD WAR (HONG JIN) has been received to be this year's Asian Film Festival opening film. Yesterday the actors and two new directors Longman Leung Lok Man and Sunny Luk Kim Ching shared their production experience.
Kwok Fu Sing said that lately he has been very busy, aside from promoting COLD WAR he also had to work on a telecommunication commercial. His previous one was 15 years ago. Later he will head to the U.S. for a China Film Festival. The 26th will be Sing Sing's birthday. Will he be in Hong Kong? He admitted that he will have returned to Hong Kong. Will he save a day to celebrate? Sing Sing said that actually it did not matter, to him birthdays already left little to no impression. He even said, "I will turn 45 very soon, but I get younger and younger and I don't know what to do. I can only ruin myself."
Earlier on Lynn Xiong (Hung Doi Lam)'s birthday, he reportedly spent 14 hours with her. Sing Sing said, "I am not talking about gossips." As for his manager Siu Mei earlier posted a garbage comment online, some online claimed that Siu Mei was referring to Lynn. Sing Sing pointed out that Siu Mei has already clarified. "Don't circle about this, we have worked together for years. I know that she has a tough time arranging my work and negotiating commercials. Sometimes she even had to handle other people's matter. When the interpersonal doesn't reach her demand, it's very normal for her to go online for release. No one should just color by number, everyone should understand her emotions." Would Sing Sing comfort Lynn who was innocently swept in? He said, "Absolutely not." Did he feel Lynn was very innocent? Sing Sing joked that he was being pigeon-holed. Instead he felt like he was being targeted and he was more innocent.
Sing Sing also said that as long as people who knew Siu Mei would not misunderstand he was fine. People ultimately needed a place for release, like he would choose to run. Would he feel like he was between a rock and a hard place? He said, "How can anyone think so complicated? Watch COLD WAR." In addition, Sing Sing would like COLD WAR to be made into a Hollywood version with Matt Damon playing his character and Leonardo DiCaprio as Tony Leung Ka Fai's. Director Leung Lok Man and Luk Kim Ching said that earlier when we went to Korea for a film festival and the response was decent. They also heard that Hollywood companies have contacted them. They also said that with a good response they could make a second installment.
Recently Chin Kar Lok and Angela Tong Ying Ying were reportedly to wed on November 13th at Ocean Park's Panda exhibit and the wedding ceremony will take place on the 15th. Kar Lok admitted that the panda exhibit wedding was their idea because in recent years they have been called Ying Ying Lok Lok, just like the national treasure giant pandas' names. Would it be very expensive? He said not. Kar Lok said that the hardest part, the number of attendees, has been taken care of. He joked that the most dangerous was asking Eric Tsang Chi Wai to be the host. He said that earlier at a meeting Chi Wai was already going off the script, like "you deserve what you got today". Kar Lok said that now he and Ying Ying began to regret his invitation a little. Was he afraid that Chi Wai would be absent? He believed that he would not be. He was worried that the night before he would be drunk. He joked that he would have to make a "drunk chair" for Chi Wai because every time he drank he would slump over.
