 It seems that Louis Koo has a big chance to win Best Actor at the Asia Pacific Film Festival, as four out of the five movies that have been selected to represent Hong Kong at the festival have the actor as the main lead.

 

As reported on HK Top Ten News, the four movies, "Out of Inferno", "The White Storm", "Overheard 3" and "Aberdeen", will be featured at the event, aside from Pang Brothers' "As the Light Goes Out".

 

Aside from Louis, Sean Lau also stars in three out of the five movies, with all three of them co-starring the former, while Nick Cheung, who has won three Best Actor awards for his role in "Unbeatable", may also be a hot contender with his role in "The White Storm", which also stars Louis and Sean.

 

Meanwhile, Miriam Yeung and Gigi Leung from "Aberdeen" may have a chance to grab the Best Actress awards for their breakout role in Pang Ho Cheung's "Aberdeen".

 

The 57th Asia Pacific Film Festival will be taking place in Phattaya, Thailand from 15 to 17 December.

With their previous chemistry they recently worked together again on the film DON'T GO BREAKING MY HEART 2 (DAN SUN NAM NUI 2). They along with Gao Yuanyuan, Daniel Wu (Ng Yin Cho) and Vic Chou Yu Man developed a complicated five sides relationship. Chin Wa this time in the film climbed rock and dove into the sea. Even when her other half Koo Tin Lok was less than faithful, she was able to tolerate that. Yet Chin Wa pointed out that in real life she definitely would not be able to, she would be fuming and explode.

Goo Jai in the last film lost to Ng Yin Coh. This time Goo Jai joked that it would be "Return of the Jedi". First he would propose to Chin Wa then he would interrupt the wedding. They also revealed that actually the director had interest in a third film. Chin Wa and Goo Jai were surprised to learn about that and then gave a lot of suggestions. They joked that they could another male and female character. Chin Wa and joked that in the next film she could be a transvestite or that Ng Yin Cho was her. Goo Jai and Chin Wa in the film not only had the usual couple intimacy but also many action scenes. Goo Jai for days had to keep climbing back and forth like he was making an action film. Goo Jai said that the building and rock ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

I believe that our over 20 years of support for the program isn't wrong." He pointed out that he did not know how to make a film like this, after watching it he was even moved to tears.

Josie Ho Chiu Yi said that she has not released a record in a year. She has been busy with her new record. "In the story of my new song I am a crazed fan. In real life I was a fan of Madonna.

Taiwan artists Sharon Hsu Wei En and Abby Fung earlier worked on the Sun Entertainment invested film ZOMBIE FIGHT CLUB (SI SING). They even dropped their "beauty baggage" and spent six hours in the make up chair to look like zombies. Known as the "Little Lin Chiling", Abby Fung sacrificed her looks to play a a zombie. With all the zombies on the set it was like a Halloween party. "Because normally I don't have a chance for such make up, after the shoot I didn't want to remove it. I wanted to go around and scare people. When my manager drove, he would deliberately lower the window and ask for direction. Other people would run away from fright."

Playing the "sexy courier", Hsu Wei-En wore a bikini and later became a zombie. She said that after work she did not dare to scare anyone. "I was afraid that someone would hit me. What's the point!"

Speaking of Jessica C. and Candy Yuen Ka Man's sexy appearance, Hui Wei-En was not afraid of comparison. "Everyone has her own specialty. Just do what you should do for each part it is fine." They pointed out that they were bruised all over during their struggle scenes. Abby Fung also looked forward to playing a couple with Nick Cheung Ka Fai. Hsu Wei-En would like to work with Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Chow Yun Fat.

Recently, there were rumours that Kevin Cheng and Charmaine Sheh had reconciled due to Raymond Cho's birthday party. Earlier, HK actor, Raymond Cho held his 50th birthday party at a hot pot restaurant in Cheung Sha Wan. Media outlets reported that ex-couple, Kevin Cheng and Charmaine Sheh came one after another. When Kevin arrived, he denied that he was the host, just here to eat. But when asked if he told Raymond to throw a big party, he said: "50th birthday is a big event, of course you should make it big!" Afterwards, Charmaine Sheh arrived in a taxi alone. Charmaine, who wasn't wearing any makeup, was very startled when she saw reporters there. After a few moments, she politely said hi to reporters. Asked if she was here to attend Raymond Cho's birthday party? She mysteriously said: "I'm here to eat with a friend." Asked if she prepared a birthday present, she patted her bag, seemingly to say she has prepared something, and quickly entered the restaurant.

Yesterday, Raymond Cho attended the TVB Lighting Ceremony and clarified the news, saying Charmaine was not there to attend his birthday party and only came to say hi. He does not feel that the two reconciled either: "Charmaine was actually there to attend another friend's gathering. But after 8pm, I got drunk already, so I didn't pay attention to them." He expressed that he thinks this year's TV King will be between Wayne Lai and Roger Kwok, and laughed saying he hopes there can be a "double champion", so everyone can be happy.

The film KUNG FU JUNGLE (YUT GOR YUN DIK MO LUM) had a major fight scenes in which Donnie Yen Chi Tan and Wang Baoqiang fought on the water near Tai O. Chi Tan kicked Wang Baoqiang and hit him in the waist. Wang Baoqiang made a quick turn and hooked onto Chi Tan's legs. They both fell onto the speed boat. Then they tried to grab and lock onto each other. Finally Wang Baoqiang threw ashes toward Chi Tan's eyes and took the chance to jump into the water to escape. After disappearing for awhile, Wang Baoqiang suddenly jumped out of the water and tried to punch Chi Tan on the speed boat.

Chi Tan personally designed much of the action in the film. Chi Tan said that their scene on the speed boat was completely real. Director Teddy Chan Tak Sum also said, "Yen Chi Tan and Wang Baoqiang both had martial art training. With kung fu background they could personally finish the stunts and did not need to rely on doubles or others to help. For the scene in Tai O, we have already took a week longer than planned. If other people performed it, it might have needed even longer time!"

Wang Baoqiang also said, "In KUNG FU JUNGLE, Brother Tan was be living by himself in the word of martial art. That is my impression of me too. He has to consider how to make the film and what kind of stunts to ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
