courtesy of

Aaron Kwok Fu Sing last night attended his new film ONE NIGHT ONLY's premiere and was asked about old flame Lynn Xiong (Hung Doi Lam)'s marriage. Sing Sing replied, "I would sincerely congratulate any friend in the business for getting married, it's just that simple!" Would he wish Lynn well? He said, "Of course!"

As for the rumor that Sing Sing and his girlfriend went to shop for a ring in Shanghai, Sing Sing said that he would not talk about his personal life. Should reporters congratulate him? Sing Sing said, "Normally my work is already very colorful, I shared a lot. Thank you everyone for caring about my personal life and romantic world. I instead want to be low key with my personal matter!"

Will he announce his wedding in the future? Sing Sing said, "It's too early for that, I hope to keep working hard. I have been luckier with offers of good scripts and from good directors, but now I am very busy, very busy. Work will start today until the end of next year, so I hope to focus on work. I also hope to run into a good character and again break through myself."

The new film PARADOX (TAM LONG) yesterday held a worship ceremony in Bangkok. Directors Wilson Yip Wai Shun and Sammo Hung Kam Bo, actors Louis Koo Tin Lok, Tony Jaa, Wu Yue, Chris Collins, Gordon Lam Ka Tung and Ken Low Wai Kwong, producers Soi Cheang Po Shui and Paco Wong attended. Goo Jai said that he did not mind playing a father and showed a caring side with his daughter.

With the SPL 2 (SAT POR LONG 2) team, PARADOX stars Koo Tin Lok and Tony Jaa. "Big Brother Big" Hung Kam Bo will be th action director. With the Central Drama Academy graduate, Mainland action actor Wu Yue and the 9 year Marine veteran Chris Collins, the story and the scenes will be even more exciting and fresh in order to make this film into another eye catching action series.

In PARADOX Koo Tin Lok will play a negotiation expert. After an argument his 16 year old daughter leaves home and disappears in Thailand. Goo Jai flies there to find her whereabouts. Although he has help from Tony Jaa and Wu Yue, he runs into mob organ sale mastermind Chris Collins. Everyone thus begins close combat and chase. Rarely playing a father, would Goo Jai mind having a 16 year old daughter? He said, "I don't mind, but in reality if I have a 16 year old daughter, and she has relations with someone too soon then I would mind." Because the shoot will take time, Goo Jai will probably spend a hot Christmas in Thailand.

Studying martial art since age 5, Wu Yue was very excited after learning that he would be able to work with Tony Jaa in the film. "In the film Tony and I will be friends, we will have no chance to fight. I mainly will fight with Chris Colllins. Yet when I see Tony and others fight, he jumps very high, very agile, he is amazing!" Wu Yue also was excited about working with Goo Jai, who has always been his idol. Thus with this chance to work together, earlier when they met for the first time he could not wait to ask for a photo together.

As for Chris who will have a lot of scenes with Tony Jaa, he said that he learned a lot from him. "Making a movie and real fighting are very different. Now I have to fight and act, the directors sometimes say that my action is too fast. Tony really knows how to grasp the pace of every punch thrown and even coordinates with acting. I really need to learn that."

On the other hand, playing a presidential candidate Lam Ka Tung said that this character will have a lot of "room to perform". The reason is he will need to learn Thai! Standing next to Ka Tung, Low Wai Kwong screamed "Ho Song" and everyone was baffled. Brother Kwong explained that it was Thai for "I will teach".

Tsui Tin Yau and Charmaine Fong Ho Man yesterday attended an insurance industry event in Diamond Hill. Recently busy with his new film MOOT YAU PONG MAN DIK HAU TIN (TWO DAYS LATER WITHOUT DUSK), Tin Yau revealed that he will play a couple with Shirley Chan Yan Yin and have intimate scenes. Has he told his wife? Tin Yau said, "I won't pay her any mind. (Not even her birthday next month?) Because I have to work, I won't be able to celebrate her birthday and our first anniversary. Last night we celebrated in advance, but I want to celebrate more after finishing the film."

Francis Ng Chun Yu and Louis Koo Tin Lok earlier spoke to the Mainland media to promote their new film SHED SKIN PAPA (TUET PEI BA BA). Goo Jai revealed that Chun Yu in order to bring to life his Alzheimer's disease character visited his father, who had the illness. Goo Jai said, "He went to my home to eat and chat with my Papa." Chun Yu admitted that he took the chance to "get some advice". "Everyone thinks that old people would forget the past, but actually they are more energetic than other people. It's very tiring to carry the past. If it is taken away, you are much more relaxed. So I feel Papa Koo is a very relaxed person." Goo Jai also praised Chun Yu's performance. "Because my Papa also constantly told me about the past, when I first saw Chun Yu in make up I thought he was very convincing!"

The Bob Lam Sing Bun starred, Patrick Kong (Yip Lim Sum) produced film LUCKY FAT MAN (NGOR YIU FAT DAT) will soon open. Yesterday Bob posted a trailer that parody a Taiwan film. He and Natalie Tong Sze Wing were dressed Darren Wong and Vivian Sung's school uniforms. The thick browed "DarBob Wong" said, "I haven't worn a school uniform in a long time. (Was the make up hard?) The two 'cockroach antennae' are the hardest to deal with!" The hilarious four eyed student Sze Wing also said it was a lot of fun.

The Daniel Wu (Ng Yin Cho), Joseph Chang, Amber Kuo and Zhang Jingchu starred, Ringo Lam Lan Tung directed action film SKY ON FIRE (CHUNG TIN FOR) will open simultaneously in Hong Kong and China on November 25th. Earlier its first trailer was released with a series of thrilling car chases. It even spared no expense as a brand new Maserati was completely destroyed.

SKY ON FIRE was Ng Yin Cho's return to Hong Kong film. On the second day of work Ng Yin Cho busted his nose when he personally performed a fight scene and was unconscious. "When I woke up it was like waking up in the morning. It was very comfortable, but when I saw the expression of all the workers I was very scared. Later I found out that I fainted." Ng Yin Cho's nose was broken. He never expected his co-star would bring him a bag of ice then directly straighten his nose. The next day he actually was able to continue to shoot to the surprise of many.

Shaw Brothers yesterday held a grand press conference to announce its future television and film business plans. Chief Li Ruigang said that Shaw Brothers is a snapshot of Hong Kong film traditions and a cradle for Hong Kong performing art and creative talent. In the future it will work tightly with Chinese culture and TVB to innovate, break through and explore the global Chinese film market. TVB also sent over 100 artists like Ruco Chan Jin Pang, Nancy Wu Ting Yan, Bobby Auyeung Chun Wa, Bosco Wong Chung Chak, Eliza Sam and Samantha Ko Hoi Ning to attend.

The Shaw Brothers upcoming film releases will be the Stephen Fung Tak Lun directed, Andy Lau Tak Wa, Shu Qi, Zhang Jingchu and Jean Reno starred THE ADVENTURERS; based on Japanese playwright Tsukuda Norihkio's work, the Louis Koo Tin Lok and Francis Ng Chun Yu starred SHED SKIN PAPA (TUEN PEI BA BA); and the still in production, Li Bingbing and Jason Statham starred disaster film MEG. Other projects will include a DRAGON INN prequel, a LINE WALKER movie, the Huang Xiaoming starred CITY HUNTER and GAU SHOOK NGAI CHING (RESCUE DANGEROUS LOVE). It will also remake the 1996 Auyeung Chun Wa starred classic television series MONEY JUST CAN'T BUY (TIN GONG CHOI SUN) and the Hong Kong Special Duties Unit themed FEI FU GIK JIN (FLYING TIGER EXTREME BATTLE). Aside from live action films, Shaw Brothers will also make animated films to released with Mainland partners the 4K, 3D animated Louis Cha classic LEGEND OF CONDOR HEROES (SEH DIU YING HUNG JUEN).

Shaw Brothers executive director, TVB (artist management and development) assistant chief manager Elaine Lok Yi Ling said that aside from the announced projects, other projects due to confidentiality agreements could not be announced yet. The projects have already been scheduled until 2018 and 2019. The soonest to start production will b films DRAGON INN and the internet series FEI FU GIK JIN. She said, "Although the salary of actors with box office guarantee isn't cheap, our productions have a set story and cast first before budgeting the production cost. MEG alone already cost over 1 billion." As for actors, Ms. Lok admitted that TVB artists will have first choice. Ultimately Shaw Brothers and TVB are family, but it will not affect TVB series productions. Will Ms. Mona Fong Yat Wa completely retire? Ms. Lok said, "Ms. Fong has been in semi retirement for awhile, she is still a member of the TVB board of directors. TVB is Shaw's primary shareholder. Shaw is the fruit of Sir Shaw's labor. Now we have the responsibility to carry on the tradition. We will work hard to make this name plate shine."

Auyeung Chun Wa's 1996 MONEY JUST CAN'T BUY will be remade. He admitted that he still remembered the experience. "I of course remember the story because this was the first series that I played the lead in. Actually during the shoot I didn't know I was the lead actor. I thought that I only played a fairy. This series also broke me into the Mainland market and introduced me to even more viewers." Bobby did not mind the remake into either film or internet series, as it was rare for people to still remember this series after so many years. Would he like to work with the original team? He said, "We have to bring back Dr. Chan (Marianne Chan Miu Ying). I know that she still likes to act, let me ask her right away to see if now she would mind working with me."

The internet drama FEI FU GIK JIN's star Wong Chung Chak revealed that the series will not start production until the middle of next year. He said that he finally was able to fulfill his dream of playing a SDU member. "I have played a dog trainer, plain clothes cop and bodyguard, this time I finally get to play SDU. I am ready for mentally and physically. It will be 30 episodes and shoot abroad."

Reportedly the new mother Linda Chung Ka Yun will return to Hong Kong next week. Friend Sam Lai Heung said that she has already planned to meet with Ka Yun. For now she did not know whether she will bring the baby alone. Will she become the baby's god mother? She said, "I want to, many people want to be the god mother. The baby is very cute and looks just like Papa."

Chan Jin Pang and Wu Ting Yan would not mind playing a couple in a Shaw Brothers film, as long as the company can schedule it they definitely will participate. Jin Pang admired Carol Cheng Yui Ling's "Cheng Nine Sets" nickname and joked that he only had to appear on three sets when he just came out of the training class. "Back then after I just graduated I stood still, then I went to the studio next door to put on a wig, then the next one to be beheaded. None had any line. Now it's much better." Ting Yan also said that she at most had to be on two sets. She remembered when she worked on VIRTUES OF HARMONY II she played two characters and no one realized it.

Ko Hoi Ning and Kate Tsui Tsz Shan were rumored to be TVB chief Dr. Chan Kwok Keung's favorites. Yesterday they finally shared the stage during the group photo. Ko Hoi Ning earlier issued a statement to clarify that she did not receive any special treatment. She said, "That magazine has already written about me many times. I have to defend my professionalism, so I issued a statement." Would seeing the boss be awkward for her? She said, "No, because it's very fake. The magazine has wronged me for 4 or 5 years." Did her boyfriend mind very much? She stressed that she did not have any boyfriend, only she minded a lot. As for her rumored boyfriend, Ko Hoi Ning hoped that everyone would give her some space. She said that she was not young anymore, and dating could not be more normal. Tsui Tsz Shan has been working mostly in the Mainland in recent years. She said that she was not used to speaking Putongua and hoped to be able to rid herself of the habit of mixing Chinese with English. Did any "Young Fresh Meat" catch her eyes in the Mainland? She said, "'Young Fresh Meat' isn't right for me, I haven't seen any either. Actually I rarely saw any guy, and I don't like to be with anyone in the business."

Lawrence Cheng says that many male friends are envious of him working with Chrissie Chau

Lawrence Cheng Tan Shui, Chrissie Chau Sau Na, Louis Cheung Kai Chung, Anthony Chan Yau, Babyjohn Choi Hong Yik and Larine Tang Yueping yesterday attended their film YUPPIE FANTASIA 3 (SIU NAN YUN JAU GEI 3 ji NG GA YAU HEI) production start worship ceremony in Sau Mau ping. Director and actor Brother Tan said, "This time the character is quite a loser, no longer a little man. Yet the bigger loser he is the more Sister Na loves him."

Yesterday Brother Tan arrived early for a supermarket opening scene. In the film Sister Na played Brother Tan's secretary, they even had an underground relationship. Earlier they shared a bathtub in a scene. Brother Tan revealed that earlier in a hotel room, they shot a scene in which Sister Na resigned in sexy lingerie. They even embraced. Sister Na said, "In the film professionally and personally I understood my boyfriend very well, you can say it is using work for personal gain. However I play his girlfriend, not wearing clothes is very normal." Brother Tan said, "As soon as I said Sister Na would be in YUPPIE FANTASIA, people online were upset and said that I was using work for personal gain. Yes, I am using work for personal gain." Brother Tan said that he thanked Sister Na very much for trusting him. She knew that the scene was necessary and thus she did not ask to wear a bathrobe. Actually the scene was written long ago, it was not added just for Chau Sau Na. Sister Na said that Brother Tan really took care of her and believed that nothing would happen. The worst part of him was that when he learned that she had to watch what she ate, he ordered a lot of great food. She could only watch him eat in secret while she starved.

Did she ask for the set to be cleared? Brother Tan said that the crew was very professional and would automatically leave. Did he have to perform in his underwear? He said, "I am pretty sharp too, I gave my first topless scene to Sister Na. I regret very much that I couldn't achieve the student's eight pack abdominal muscles no matter how hard I worked out. Before the shoot I did a lot to be in better shape, but of course I couldn't." When asked if she would do the same, Sister Na, "I can't describe it with words, I can only say that it is the 'complete meal'." Brother Tan admitted that he has not directed and starred for too long, the burden was too much. Luckily the actors performed well and did not concern him.

Chung Kai Chung worked with Brother Tan again. He praised him as a very experienced director. This time he would play a villain who often got Brother Tan into trouble. He said that he was very happy to be able to play characters that were very far from the real him, which he felt was very challenging. Did he have any scene with Sister Na? He said, "Unfortunately no, but the director really respects the actor's creative space. I wouldn't eliminate the possibility of adding my own scenes to hook up with Sister Na. Let's see if the director would notice. However sometimes I don't need the director to notice, I would secretly do it." Ah Chung also revealed that in the film he and Harriet Yeung Sze Man would have relationship scenes. He said that he looked forward to work with a Performing Art Academy alumnus. He said that the entire film actually had a lot of fun but not dirty scenes. He watched YUPPIE FANTASIA before, so he looked forward to it very much.

Under the Chinese government’s suppression, Golden Triangle’s heroin supply has greatly declined. The uprise of ‘ice’ however brings back the ascendancy of Golden Triangle and it quickly becomes a battlefield at the Mekong River. On 5th October 2011, thirteen dead bodies of Chinese shipmen are found, blindfolded with hands tied, on the Mekong River. The Thai military also discovers 900 thousand pieces of ice drug on two Chinese merchant vessels. The Chinese government assigns Officer Ko and his team to investigate the case in Thailand. Fong, a farm owner and an intelligence agent, knows that the ice drug found on the vessels belongs to a drug lord’s gang member and is imputed to the Chinese shipmen. He later discovers the mastermind behind the massacre – Law, a notorious drug lord who has a strong military force and operates in and out of the Golden Triangle. In order to arrest Law, Thailand, Laos, Burma and China work together with an unspoken rule among themselves: the country that captures Law will be his jurisdiction. Fong and Ko’s teams use all means to track down Law. Ko and his team infiltrate into Law’s troop in the hope of taking down his stronghold. Fong lays a trap as an undercover, not realizing Law has found out his true identity and in the ensuing firefight, Law’s military force has slaughtered most of Ko’s men. In the aftermath of Fong’s wrongful intelligence, Ko discovers Fong’s untold secret and his true intention in the field. Once and for all, could Ko unveil Golden Triangle’s iron curtain and seek justice for the shipmen?
