TO THE FORE (POR FUNG) is about to start production. One of the lead actors Ethan Juan (Yuen King Tin) due to a leg injury resigned. The film finally landed Mainland star Shawn Dou Xiao to work with Eddie Peng Yu-Yen. Currently Dou Xiao has alrady begun the intensive training.
Dou Xiao's schedule everyday was counted by the hour, including distance riding distribution, diet, and rest. Everything was done under the coach's supervision. Dou Xiao said that he came to work without any fear of death. He said, "Because the director demands realistic competitive conditioning and riding technique, during this training the coach would continuously specify every detail of our riding. We had to keep our knees in and get ourselves into V shape in order to achieve the aerodynamic effect." During the training, Dou Xiao on a ride uphill fell and suffered different level of soft tissue injuries on the kneecap and the arm. However his persistence for the training was not affected. He pointed out that the film was a very hot blooded story. The injury experience instead motivated him tremendously.
