Donnie Yen Chi Tan and Wong Jing recently worked together on many different genre films and trained new comers on and off camera. Their new film BIG BROTHER (DAI SI HING) was Yen Chi Tan's Super Bullet Limited company and Mega Vision film and television production company joint production. It also was the Super Bullet Limited's first production. Yen Chi Tan gave his full support as executive producer, producer and actor to ensure quality all around. BIG BROTHER did not disappoint as it was selected to be the 22nd Montreal Fantasia International Film Festival's closing film and compete in the Cheval Noir Competition.

Yen Chi Tan and Wong Jing were very excited to hear the news. Yen Chi Tan said, "This is my company's first release, I am extremely encouraged that it can participate in this international film festival." Wong Jing even asked Yen Chi Tan to attend the film festival together. Because the film will make its August 1st global premiere and closing film at the film festival, the team was banging their heads against the wall to see if they could make time for Yen Chi Tan to attend the film festival. Unfortunately July and August was Yen Chi Tan's production peak, right now Yen Chi Tan's attendance would remain up in the air.h

Parodying "Detective Investigation Files"! Michael Tao Becomes 'Cheung Siu Yung' Playing with 'Car Keys'

Sunday July 1, 2018 Hong Kong

The "Detective Investigation Files" series, starring Michael Tao, Joey Leung, and Kenix Kwok, has been re-airing late at night after 23 years but is still highly popular, attracting many viewers. The brotherhood between Michael's 'Tai Yung' and Joey's 'Yi Jai' has gained the affection of advertisers; the two received a six-figure fee to shoot an online advertisement, recreating the classic.

The other day, the two came together again to film an advertisement clip for a health food that integrated the characters and plot of "Detective". In it, Michael's 'Cheung Siu Yung' was investigating a case, even personally performing the most discussed English name pronunciation 'che si' (car keys). He called 'Jessica', the female character in the advertisement, 'Che-si-ca' and showed off his iconic, signature 'face-covering' action again. Even Michael could not help but laughingly say, "So I actually have a few funny classics, such as 'car keys' and the face-covering action. I did this action in 'Love Bond'. Was simply a design...did not expect it to become my icon and also be so heavily discussed. Also told me to do this action again in the advertisement. Since it is like this, I also want to use such a personal icon to entertain the public!"

Joey has not acted in many years. Coming back out this time was entirely related to his old friend, Michael. Joey revealed that he already has a semi-retired attitude, as he hopes to, apart from doing behind-the-scenes work, which he likes, travel to different places, using the most down-to-earth way to enjoy life; thus, he does not have much interest in performing in front of the camera or doing interviews. However, in this advertisement ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Artistes Louis Koo, Louis Cheung, Jessica Hsuan, Annie Liu, Fiona Sit, Andy On, et al. appeared at Fo Tan to attend the blessing ceremony of Director Fung Chih Chiang's new film, "A Witness Out of the Blue".

In the movie, Louis [Koo] and Jessica play a pair that is neither friendly nor aloof. Jessica is challenging her acting again, playing a visually impaired person. She laughingly said that she was startled by the script: "It talks about him being violent toward me before we are together. Hope that, after ten-plus years, Louis [Koo] knows how to hold back his strength. (You were previously injured by him?) No. It's just that we were both very immersed. Did not know how to hold back. I used real strength...just afraid of injuring my partner. (Have intimate scenes in the movie?) Leaving these for filming a sequel".

Louis [Koo], who plays a criminal in the movie, uses a machine gun to rob a jewellery story. He expressed, "Sealed the street downtown to film. We want to film a solid police movie. (No prop money involved during filming?) Did not explain it because it starts off with me having already killed the cop".

Suen Huen said that this time she would suffer Koo Tin Lok's torture, as she was afraid that he would kick her off the stairs!

Playing a couple with Koo Tin Lok in the film, Suen Huen said, "We are the cute pair, not an usual one!" Goo Jai also said that they in the film had a love hate relationship. When asked if they would have any intimate scene, Suen Huen said no because in the film her romance with Goo Jai would only be decoration. Goo Jai also said that this would be the most realistic crime film, thus he would wait until the next film BACK TO THE PAST (CHUM CHUN GEI) to add intimate scenes.

Suen Huen continued that this time she had to play a visually impaired character. In the past she has played blind and ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

Recently he was even invited to be an Oscar voter. "I have been invited, I haven't seen the qualifying films yet. Any voter who has not seen the qualifying films would not be qualified to vote. This time I am already very happy to be invited, I will be able to enjoy films and genres from different nations. (Would you have time to watch all the movies?)

Michelle Wai Sze Nga yesterday was a guest at a medical beauty store opening. This year she has been working nonstop. Wai Sze Nga said that recently she has been working on the film JOI GEIN UFO, in which she played a goddess in love with Tsui Tin Yau. Then she would work on another film THE WHITE STORM 2 (SO DUK 2). She said, "In this one I will play a cop, the character is really very different. However I finally get to work with Lau Tak Wa (Andy), which is every actor's dream. When I see Lau Tak Wa I probably will be very nervous. In the film we will have scenes together. However they will be action scenes and not romantic ones. I really want to have romantic scenes. The film also will have Sam Gor (Michael Miu Kiu Wai) and (Carlos) Chan Ka Lok."

Carlos Chan Ka Lok, Bryant Mak Chi Lok and Carmen Soup (Tong Ka Man) two nights ago attended the horror film BUYER BEWARE (GUK OK) premiere. Mak Chi Lok said that because of the film he developed a brotherly relationship with Chan Ka Lok. "We worked on location in Malaysia. Ka Lok got sick and lost his voice and everyday I brought him medicine. I went to the Genting casino with Tong Ka Man on our free time and won several hundred bucks. We bought durian to celebrate but Ka Lok couldn't have any." Mak Chi Lok praised Chan Ka Lok for being handsome and refined. He hoped to have a chance to work together again in the future. Outside work they also became friends as they often met for sports and leisure. Did the recently heartbroken Chan Ka Lok have any heart to heart talk with him? Mak Chi Lok said, "Rarely, we get it so I wouldn't ask. I would only keep him company."

Chan Ka Lok returned his strange experience while shooting the film in Malaysia for two weeks, as he had fever, sore throat and wisdom tooth problems. He did not even have the voice to deliver his lines. Once he returned to Hong Kong he was fine. He said, "Luckily Chi Lok was experienced and reacted from reading my lips. I thank him for taking care of me, but an argument scene ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)
