The Donnie Yen Chi Tan and Wang Baoqiang starred ICEMAN: TIME TRAVELER opened in the Mainland recently but to less than ideal box office. The film company criticized Chi Tan for acting like a big shot, aside from changing his lines he also did not wear a wig for costume scenes. He even interfered with production work, thus the film did not turn out as expected. "Where is Mr. Yen Chi Tan's respect for the spirit of the contract? For other people's benefit? Where is his professionalism!"

Chi Tan condemned the behavior as shameless. "Your dirty promotional behavior, I wouldn't tolerate, just wait for a letter from my lawyer!"

How can you manage others' Those words invaded my heart, so I lost weight and kept it that way until now. Later at the forum we would share how she communicated with people.

The film MASTER Z: THE IP MAN LEGACY (IP MAN OI JUEN: CHEUNG TIN CHI) was the "world's number one action director" Lord Eight Yuen Woo Ping directed and action directed, its actors all agreed that Lord Eight was highly demanding. He kept forcing actors to improve. As his disciple Max Zhang Jin said, "Lord Eight understands my abilities very well, the stunts are designed for me all challenge my limits. They have to be different from the ones before. When challenging these stunts sometimes I would lack confidence, but Lord Eight allowed me to try again and again until completion. I am very grateful for Lord Eight's trust." During the shoot, Zhang Jin suffered a lot of injuries but insisted against using a double. Because he felt that all the hardship for the shot and the audience was worth it, he hoped that the contributions would make the audience feel the film was worth the price of admission. He also stated that the hardship from this type of work was the joy that he dreamed of when he was a stunt double.

As for working with elder Michelle Yeoh (Yeung Chi King), Zhang Jin was very thankful for the opportunity. 17 years ago in CROUCHING TIGER HIDDEN DRAGON he had a connection with her as a stun double and even mistakenly kicked Yeung Chi King.

Fala Cheng, Jessica Jung and Jessica C. two nights ago attended a store opening. Fala Chen earlier directed and starred in a short film and won an award. She admitted that she was surprised since she was only messing around, but she would also see it as a huge encouragement.

As for whether Fala would consider making a feature film, she said, "Now I am writing a drama, I would star in it but it is still under preparation. However I probably won't direct myself because with so much to worry about, getting into character would be harder." Fala estimated that the new film should be completed next year. She said that she could write fast and slow, instead finding investors would take the most time. She might consider applying for government assistance. In addition, at the end of the month Fala would work with a new female director in Inner Mongolia. It would be very cold then and she would prepare to take a lot of heating pads to stay warm.

Playing a patrol cop, Leung Wing Kei was lead actor Pang Ho Cheung's former girlfriend. She revealed that in the film she had a lot of argument scenes, but she would not spoil whether she was "misbehaving". In uniform, Gigi had to wear a jacket to cover her costume. She had to watch what she was doing to keep people from mistaking the real police and affecting the police mage. However some pedestrians also recognized her. She told them that she was working on POLICE REPORT.

Pang Ho Cheung said that he would ask whoever he felt was suitable to guest star, so far he has confirmed Patrick Tse Yin and Miriam Yeung Chin Wa. Shawn Yue Man Lok however had to check his schedule. "Other Lunar New Year films have already wrapped, I have to play catch up and finish before the 22nd. Post production takes time."

Speaking of Golden Harvest founder Raymond Chow Man Wai's passing, Pang Ho Cheung said, "I was very surprised, Louis Cha is gone! Chow Wai Man passed away as well! I am very saddened and very shocked. My first film as a director YOU SHOOT I SHOOT (MAI HUNG PAK YUN) only went into production due to Chow Man Wai's support. He believed in me and .....
