The 1989 film release ALL ABOUT AH LONG (AH LONG DIK GOO SI) was a box office and critical hit with over HK$30 million back then! 24 years later, the "film industry iron triangle" of Chow Yun Fat, Sylvia Chang (Cheung Ngai Ga) and Johnnie To Kei Fung will reunite on the big screen for a film adaptation of the play DESIGN FOR LIVING (WA LAI SEUNG BAN JOOK ji SUN WOOT YU SUN CHUEN). To Sir will direct, Chow Yun Fat and Cheung Ngai Ga will star. Eason Chan Yik Shun and Tang Wei will also take part as the production will start at the end of September!
Last year Cheung Ngai Ga revealed that DESIGN will be made into a film. Later she turned the script over to To Kei Fung. Wai Ka Wai became the screen writer. At the time To Sir already planned for Cheung Ngai Ga to be the lead actress and Chow Yun Fat was a lock for the lead actor, as he swore to bring the ALL ABOUT AH LONG iron triangle back to the big screen after 24 years. Back then Fat Gor with the film won the Hong Kong Film Award Best Actor, even the theme song PERHAPS UNEASY was heard on every corner. Actually, Cheung Ngai Ga also suggested to To Sir to ask Fat Gor to perform. Although they have not worked together for years, they stayed in touch. When he received the invitation, Fat Gor agreed right away!
Fat Gor is working on the film FROM VEGAS TO MACAU (DOH SING FUNG WON). To Sir is busy with the Vic Chou Yu Man, Louis Koo Tin Lok and Miriam Yeung Chin Wa starred DON'T GO BREAKING MY HEART 2. The soonest the new film will start production will be at the end of September. Aside from Fat Gor and Cheung Ngai Ga, Chan Yik Shun and Tang Wei will also perform. Busy with his concerts, Eason and his good friend Nicholas Tse Ting Fung both have the chance to work with Fat Gor. Eason's end of the year schedule will completely belong to the production as he planned to learn from Fat Gor.
