The Media Asia media group chair Peter Lam Kin Ngok yesterday led actors and directors to attend the Hong Kong Entertainment Expo opening and announce this year's large productions, including the TRIUMPH IN THE SKIES (CHUNG SEUNG WON SIU) film version that will start production in June with "Sam Gor" Francis Ng Chun Yu, "Cool Demon" Julian Cheung Chi Lam and Louis Koo Tin Lok.
The Hong Kong Entertainment Expo opened yesterday, Media Asia group chief Lam Kin Ngok led actors and directors to attend the Media Asia 2014 New Film press conference. They included Ng Chun Yu, Cheung Chi Lam, Koo Tin Lok, Chang Chen, Nick Cheung Ka Fai, Jacky Cheung Hok Yau, Leon Lai Ming, Vic Chou Yu Man, Dior Cheng Yi Kin, Miriam Yeung Chin Wa, Ivana Wong Yuen Chi, Chrissie Chau Sau Na, Janice Man Wing Shan, Andrew Lau Wai Keung and Wilson Yip Wai Shun. The large productions this year included DON'T GO BREAKING MY HEART 2 (DAN SUN NAM NUI 2), BREAK UP 100 (FUN SAU 100 CHI), HELIOS (CHET DOH), SHE REMEMBERS, HE FORGETS (OI DIK GUN YUEN), WINE WAR (SA JAU SUN), TRIUMPH IN THE SKIES (CHUNG SEUNG WON SIU) film version and the 3D animation MONKEY KING RELOADED 3D (SIU GUM GONG NAU YEUK DAI MO HIM).
Ng Chun Yu hoped that the original team like Fala Chen would be able to star in the TRIUMPH IN THE SKIES film version, but the film would be a Media Asia and Shaw co-production. Fala Chen is no longer a TVB contract artist and might not perform. Chun Yu said, "During the series shoot, Fala already wasn't signed with TVB but TVB still made her the lead actress." Chun Yu did not know whether the film version would have the three of them fight over a girl.
As for fighting over screen time, he joked, "You don't have to follow us to the location shoots, I will report back with any information." Earlier losing the TVB Best Actor, would he like to win Best Actor with this film? Chun Yu said with a little disdain, "Don't bring up stuff that TVB doesn't like people to bring up, since they don't want to bring it up again, why bring up the unhappy stuff!" TVB did not want to bring it up? Chun Yu said, "We don't want to bring it up, OK?" Was he upset? He said, "We don't really care."
Ekin and Sister Na's BREAK UP 100 CHI had a water scene. They both said that they were not embarrassed. Instead the cartoon underwear that the crew prepared for Sister Na ruined the romantic atmosphere, as everyone cracked up. Ekin pointed out that he did not inform his wife Yoyo Mung Ka Wai in advance because Mung Ka Wai was an actress and knew the job requirement. Sister Na felt that in the film she and Ekin dated for 8 years, intimate contact was normal so it was not awkward.
Cheung Ka Fai, Cheung Hok Yau and Chang Chen starred in HELIOS. Ka Fai joked that directors Longman Leung Lok Man and Sunny Luk Kim Ching swindled him. They agreed that he did not need to fight but in the end added two fight scenes for him. He joked that he had a fighting life. Instead playing a professor Hok Yau really wanted a fight scene. Was it because his salary was too high, no one could afford for him to play an action film? Hok Yau said, "Talking about salary in front of Ka Fai, mine wasn't even one tenth of his." Chang Chen had his first film car crash. He did not feel it was dangerous, instead he felt it was very exciting.
Leon Lai Ming will direct and star in WINE WAR. He pointed out that because he often had red wine with boss Lam Kin Ngok, he was inspired to make this film. He will also produce the 3D animation MONKEY KING RELOADED 3D, saying that he already had the idea 3 years ago.
