Simon Yam Tat Wa two nights ago attended a hair product press conference and his directed, starred and behind the scene produced commercial film was premiered. An online article about Stephen Chow Sing Chi led to Mrs. Charles Heung Wa Keung and many filmmakers' criticism. Brother Wah said, "I have never worked with Mr. Chow, I have no comment. Mr. and Mrs. Heung are very righteous people." He said that he appreciated Mr. Chow's films but talent was talent as he in the past has heard rumors about him. "I frequently heard from Ng Man Tat, I believe there is some reasons within. Actually friends are the most important."

Stephen Chow Sing Chi has been tangled in trouble lately but has not made a statement, as he is still busy with his upcoming film MERMAID (MEI YUN YU). Only 4 of the 13 selected "mermaids" will remain after the elimination round next week, thus they fought and plotted to stand out and perform. Seeing how far the Mainland candidates have gone, Barbie Liu (Ha Wai Yu) and Linah Matsuoka did not dare to hesitate; Ha Wai Yu performed a seductive musical routine to stand out, while Matsuoka not only showed off her figur but also studied her Putonghua hard in hopes of getting more points and into the final 4.

Chow Sing Chi actually has secretly been meeting the 13 candidates, but since they signed a confidentiality agreement they could not reveal the process of meeting Sing Yeh. The film's screen writer Chris Chan Jan Yue posted photos of the "mermaids" meeting Sing Yeh and Wilson Chin Kwok Wai on Weibo. "No matter the strong the storm is, we would only work hard on the next film -- meeting the 13 competition candidates!" Seemingly the rumors have not affected Sing Yeh.

Sing Yeh is expected to instruct only the final 4 "mermaids" on acting. Although the winner might not be the lead, the 13 candidates ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The Best Actor Nicholas Tse Ting Fung starred Emperor Motion Picture BUT ALWAYS (YUT SUN YUT SAI) after six days in release in the Mainland made 130 million yuan RMB and set three new records! Reportedly Ting Fung's salary kept rising and now has reached 20 million yuan RMB, but he still got love from film companies and plenty of market. Reportedly he had over 20 scripts on hand to choose from.

Best Actor Tse Ting Fung and top Mainland actress Gao Yuanyuan starred Emperor romance BUT ALWAYS became the highest grossing Mid Autumn Festival Chinese film, almost doubling last year's Mid Autumn Festival champion's take. It was also the highest grossing film that starred Ting Fung as the only lead actor, while it broke Gao Yuanyuan's personal first week box office record of 42 million RMB with the film CAUGHT IN THE WEB. BUT after 7 days of release made over HK$4 million in Hong Kong.

Reportedly, Ting Fung did not mind giving a "discount" to make BUT. Obviously money was not the only motivation for him. Reportedly Ting Fung's next film would be the Wilson Yip Wai Shun directed film with Taiwan hunk Ethan Juan (Yuen King Tin). Top Korean star Song Hye-Kyo was in negotiation to be the lead actress.

Ruco Chan recently lamented the harsh filming environment for upcoming big-budget series "Cheung Po Tsai", saying that Raymond Wong has made a good decision to walk away.

 

As reported on Oriental Daily, Ruco, who attended the promotional event for his recently premiered series "All That is Bitter is Sweet", revealed that he has already filmed several scenes before Tony Hung, who was called to replace Raymond after the latter was diagnosed with Behcet's Disease, starts filming his parts.

 

"It was difficult. I was standing in the sun ten hours a day," said Ruco, when asked about filming progress. "Though I have not passed out yet, I am physically drained. A few actors had even fainted on the second day of work!"

 

Ruco revealed that he has already lost four to five pounds and is half dreading going to Shanghai in November for some outdoor filming.

 

"It should be snowing by then, so it's like we are battling ice and fire for the drama. I just can't take this anymore and I hope Tony will start working as soon as possible," said Ruco.

 

Meanwhile, the actor expressed his happiness that "All That is Bitter is Sweet" received favourable rating of 28 points since the premiere, and promised to wear small swimming briefs at Linda Chung's poolside party if the series ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Despite movie producer Tiffany Chen's legal threat, actor-turned-filmmaker Stephen Chow seemed unfazed with the recent issue that stemmed from an article written about his personal life and career, and continued his focus on the casting progress of his upcoming film "Mermaid".

 

According to a report on HK Top Ten, the director, who was given ten days to clarify the infamous article that made allegations about Charles Heung's ties with the mob, clearly has not been affected at all by the threats or even the backlash from other celebrities.

 

Concentrating his full attention on the pre-production of his upcoming film, Stephen will also be attending the next elimination round to find the perfect girl to play his mermaid.

 

Meanwhile, 13 actresses who have been selected for the next stage of the audition have begun the special mermaid training at a Shenzhen hotel.

 

Actress Barbie Liu, one of the actresses selected for the next stage of audition, said that the training was quite difficult, as they had to learn to swim using only their hips and legs like a mermaid. However, she is confident with her talent to get through to the next round.

 

Four will be chosen from the elimination round and only one will finally get the coveted role in the end.
