Pegasus Motion Pictures today will hold a press conference in Shanghai for IP MAN 3. Aside from Donnie Yen Chi Tan and Lynn Xiong returning to the cast, the film company even invited Hollywood action director Yuen Woo Ping to join the team. The Mainland media invitation also mentioned a mystery actor who will be the film's secret weapon. Reportedly that mystery actor will be the former world heavyweight boxing champion and one of the greatest heavyweight boxers in the world, Mike Tyson. The film will add a "Wing Chun" vs Boxing fight scene that would pit the "Strongest in the Universe" Yen Chi Tan against Tyson.

In addition, at the end of IP MAN 2 a childhood Bruce Lee appeared. In the IP MAN 3 Shanghai press conference invitation Bruce Lee's brother Robert Lee Chun Fai was listed as "film consultant". Conceivably "Bruce Lee" would have a great chance to "appear" in the film in some capacity.

Chi Tan yesterday posted online, "I am preparing to start a new journey, this may be the most important film of my life."

IP MAN 3 will also have several new face like Louis Cheung Kai Chung and Karena Ng Chin Yu. Patrick Tam Yiu Man will also play a part.

Hong Kong's famous Shaw Brothers studio to be revived as TVB goes to the movies

Free-to-air television giant TVB is reviving the Shaw Brothers brand to venture into the film business and develop Chinese-language titles with Hollywood for global distribution.

 

TVB's group chief executive Mark Lee Po-on told the South China Morning Post that the company aimed to produce films on the scale of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and it had been in talks with major studios in Hollywood.

 

"We are not just about Hong Kong and mainland China films. The collaboration will be east and west," Lee said yesterday. "We are talking to major Hollywood studios."

 

Lee declined to reveal details of projects under development or investment plans, but said announcements would be made in about six months.

 

TVB's film ambitions emerged after six years of trial. In 2009, the company entered into a joint venture agreement with Shaw Brothers to produce films, with a total capital contribution capped at HK$20 million.

 

The venture's latest success was Wong Jing's star-studded action comedy From Vegas to Macau II, which topped the mainland's Lunar New Year box office and has grossed more than HK$1 billion worldwide. Romantic drama Triumph in the Sky, developed from a popular TVB series of the same name, raked in more than HK$16 million in the box office at Lunar New Year.

 

"This proves our plan worked. Now we want to make film a part of our core business," Lee said.

 

Lee said that instead of developing a new brand, Mona Fong, TVB's non-executive director and widow of the late Sir Run Run Shaw - a founder of TVB and the Shaw Brothers studio - allowed TVB to use the Shaw Brothers brand to form Shaw Brothers Pictures, a fully owned subsidiary of TVB, to spearhead TVB's film ambition.

Artiste, Joey Meng (萬綺雯) attended the press conference of introduction of TVB 2015 series and cooperating with overseas (TVB2015劇集推介暨海外業務合作記者會). She disclosed she finished filming new series, With or Without You (東坡家事) and will be going for vacation, but had not decided on the destination. Joey planned to go to sunny beach or travel to Europe, and her husband might not follow her this time. She denied taking advantage of the dropping in Euro dollars and planned to learn about porcelain and taking care of her health.

When mentioned about TVB spent 17 millions dollars to purchase ATV prime series and she filmed in the series, My Date with a Vampire (我和殭屍有個約會), Joey felt it was a pity and said: "They ended up in this way and sold their series eventually. But it is considered good news as ATV can pay salaries to their employees. (Use the money to pay licence?) Hope there is good arrangements made. I do not wish to see my ex-colleauges to worry."
