Julian Cheung Chi Lam two nights ago attended a designer event. Chilam is currently busy with the film RETURN OF THE CUCKOO (SUP YUET CHOR NG DIK YUET GUONG). He again denied that he was at odds with director Patrick Kong (Yip Lim Sum). He even asked, "How would I be at odds with anyone?" However after years in the business, he understood that such news would definitely happen to artists; however he admitted that he would give his suggestions about the script, which was not changing it. He explained, "No one is more familiar with the 'Chor Gor Gor' character than me, the director also values my opinion. Actually the director and I are very familiar, so much so that we forgo all formalities. We don't treat each other with each other like guests. Maybe everyone had a misunderstanding." As an actor, he felt that the director's thinking should be at the heart of it. The set should not have any tyrant.

Louis Koo Tin Lok and Taiwan star Amber Kuo worked together for the first time on the James Yuen Sai Sun directed romantic comedy PARIS HOLIDAY (BA LAI GA KEI), which finally finished its Paris location shoot. This time they ran into Luc Besson' new film BASTILLE DAY at the same location. In the end Goo Jai and Choi Kit's rooftop scene had to give way to Luc Besson's five block production roadblock and be postponed.

One of the exterior scenes took place at a white church. Goo Jai and Choi Kit in the chilly temperature still worked night and day on the film. During the shoot tourist visits and flash photography often affected the shoot. Luc Besson's production team that was in a nearby trailer took the initiative and helped as they erected a human wall with the Hong Kong crew to keep tourists from affecting the shoot. Finally the director completed the shoot successfully and thanked Luc Besson's team. "Although I didn't run into Luc Besson, several times during the shoot I ran into his team and received their help. I feel very honored. It's serendipitous, I hope in the future I will have a chance to run into him in some film festivals!"

The final scene took place at a restaurant in Chinatown, after which everyone opened bottles of champagne. At the wrap banquet the director thanked Goo Jai and Choi Kit for their help. He even revealed that when Goo Jai read the script in May, he only read for five minutes before agreeing. The rarest was Goo Jai, who had many film offers but still took several times out to shoot in Paris, which gave everyone a very big surprise.

Anthony Wong Chau Sun and Chapman To Man Chak made up. Two nights ago director Herman Yau Lai To brought them together for dinner. They even posted a photo online. Reportedly, the dinner atmosphere was pleasant. Ah Jat was even drunk early on. Chau Sun yesterday admitted, "We just talked about the script. They want to start work in February, but I have to teach acting so I may not be able to. (Do you feel Ah Jat is different?) I said that someone would be even more despicable to me. When we get along we chat a little more, when we don't we talk less."

 Hong Kong star Jennifer Tse recently confirmed her breakup with boyfriend Sean Dai, saying that they are better off being friends.

 

As reported on Mingpao News, the actress, who attended a fashion brand event on 18 November, clarified that there was no third party involvement in their relationship and that it was a mutual decision.

 

"Of course I am not happy about breaking up, but I am confident that our friendship becomes much better this way," said Jennifer.

 

The actress stressed that Sean is a good man, but that a relationship takes more than just love for each other to continue.

 

However, Jennifer will continue to work with Sean after their breakup.

 

In regard to ex-boyfriend Andy On's relationship with Jessica C., Jennifer smiled and said that she is happy for him.

 

"I was initially worried that it would take him quite a while to find somebody new, since we had been together for six years before the breakup," said Jennifer, who wishes the couple well.

 

Sean Dai previously revealed their breakup through Instagram amidst rumours of his supposed affairs with other women, saying that the two of them will continue to work together and remain friends.

 Cecilia Cheung's camp has recently responded to Johnnie To's statement belittling the actress's durability in the entertainment industry, Tencent Entertainment reported.

 

Johnnie, who earlier made headlines after saying that no director would want to work with the actress due to her negative image in the media, stood by his statement when asked to clarify the issue, adding that Cecilia is not suitable for his movies.

 

While the actress has been silent on the topic all these while, her agency AEG's president, Yu Yuk Hing, recently expressed his disappointment over Johnnie's issue with the actress.

 

"I have always admired Johnnie and I know that the movie industry is competitive and people use various ways to promote their movie. But this behaviour of belittling others is so beneath a great director such as himself," said Yu.

 

He added that while he is happy for Johnnie, what with the success of "Don't Go Breaking My Heart 2" and his recent honorary doctorate in literature, he is also sad that the director would take such a measure to promote his work.

 

In regard to Johnnie's statement that nobody dares to cast Cecilia in their movies, Yu responded, "At the moment, there is more than a dozen offers that Cecilia is currently reviewing, but she will choose her project carefully."

I SELL LOVE will open in Hong Kong on December 4. The film earlier has already been selected for many international film festivals in Europe, Asia and America as well as this year's Hong Kong Asian Film Festival. Chu Ka Won did not expect that the film would receive many international film festival's recognition, looking back the film was almost scrapped due to financing problems. He pointed out that the film already applied for funding with the Hong Kong Film Development Fund. As everything was ready, several days before the shoot he suddenly received a notice that the application was rejected because the film had no commercial market. Later a friend helped with an investment and the film was able to start production. This time he chose Rose to play the assisted dating escort girl because she had no "pseudo model flavor". Yet he also worried that at her age due to the lack of life experience if she would be able to interpret restrained ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

If he went, he would not know what he would say; he also said that this character had enormous emotional upheaval. This robber originally did not want to rob again and wanted to change jobs, but he was bullied and in the end he could not accept it. Siu Chai continued, before the shoot he studied that criminal's television videos for character research. He also had to learn the Chaoshan dialect.

Siu Chun who has not made a Hong Kong film in a long time said that now after work he would rush home to be with his son. Speaking of his son, he was very excited. He said that now his son was 15 months old and was very cute. However his son would only call for Mommy and ignore him when he asked him to say Papa. Siu ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
