The Francis Ng Chun Yu and Julian Cheung Chi Lam starred film THE LEAKERS (SIT MUK JEH MOON) will open next month. They turned into a police duo sworn to capture the mastermind behind a criminal organization. The film was shot in Malaysia and Hong Kong. They had to handle many stunts and car chases. Chun Yu had a scene in which he had to drive a truck to begin a car chase with Chilam in a police car. Several "police cars" and other vehicles were stuck between them, driving through narrow alleys, crashing into street stalls and making pedestrians flee in terror! Due to how realistic the scene was, the shoot was once mistaken for a police and robber car chase.

The car chase scene in Hong Kong was just as dangerous, but Chilam and Chun Yu both said that the team took all the safety precaution. During the real car chase they had a professional stunt team on hand to direct and act as double.

In response to earlier rumor of Jet Li (Lee Nin Kit)'s deteriorating health, his manager Steven Chasman stressed that Lee Nin Kit was in good health and the photo was a photography issue. Lee Nin Kit had hyperthyroidism for 10 years, his life was not at risk and Lee Nin Kit was taking care of it. His assistant also posted a recent photo of Lee Nin Kit to dispel the rumor.

Yesterday a video of Lee Nin Kit in public appeared online. He thanked everyone for their concern and personally responded to the rumor. "My health is pretty good." He said that when he went to a temple, because the entire world heard that his health was poor he received a longevity Buddha to bless him with good health. Lee Nin Kit said that he was not a spokesperson for wheel chair or medication. He was always made crippled online but he was fine. He said, "I never thought that just by returning to Chengdu, I would turn 80 in one day. Oh, the sorrow." He said that if he would turn 80 just because of a photo, he could not be happier to be in his current condition when he really would turn 80. Lee Nin Kit also still thanked the media for making the story up for him to receive the caring of many friends. If he was able to contribute a little for the media friends' articles and traffic he would gladly comply.

Teresa Mo Shun Kwan and Corinna Chamberlain (Chan Ming Yun) yesterday attended a Radio Hong Kong equal opportunity employment event. Mo Mo Said that as a result of starring in TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY (WONG GUM FA), she brought a lot of attention from the community to the autism problem and attracted many charity organizations' invitations for her to participate in charity event. She said, "Film really is very powerful, like it is speaking of many of the weak. Actually Hong Kong also has many stories of people and groups that care. If I have time I would support them, as they are very meaningful."

Mo Mo said that despite winning the Hong Kong Film Award Best Actress with the film, her future film choices would not be affected. "I take roles mainly due to the script. I really like comedy too, making people laugh isn't easy. If it's realistic and able to make society think then it's even better. I am a little greedy in this aspect." She revealed that lately she received some scripts, she would consider productions in Hong Kong first. She said, "I am busy with a food related project." Would she open a restaurant? She said, "Probably, but it won't be a supper club. I will make the announcement in June or July."

Back then it was still the ICQ age. We would type on the computer. At the time there wasn't as much new technology, so we would personally write letters. I felt handwritten letters were very romantic. In the end of course nothing came of it." Would she support her children to develop long distance romance? She said, "I would have no way to stop them.

She said, "Because the movie is very touching, with a lot of family, or everyone might have experienced long distance relationship and it is a school story, so it is easy to relate." In real life she said that she has not experienced long distance love but believed that she would be able to accept it, because having her space and distance she would be better. Instead seeing each other everyday the relationship would become a habit you become accustomed to. Would she not want to be too dependent on her ten year boyfriend Ken Hung Cheuk Lap?
