Lo Hoi Pang, Stephen Wong Ka Lok, Samantha Chuk Man Kwan, Wang Wai Tak work together on the new film HEUNG GONG FUNG WON HAI LIT ji GAU FU (HONG KONG STORM SERIES: GODFATHER), which yesterday held a production start ceremony on Lau Fau Shan. Investor Heung Wa Bo also attended. Brother Pang said that he only knew he had several days of scenes and has yet to ask about his character. He was prepared to accept any order on the set. He said, "I don't need to get ready, whatever you want me to do, I can play immediately."

Wong Ka Lok in the film turned from a doctor to Godfather, in the past he had a lot of conflicts with father Brother Pang and brother Mak Cheung Ching. He said that this was the first time he came in contact with such a character and worked wth Brother Pang, thus he was anxious. Was he afraid that Brother Pang would "check the mic"? Ka Lok said, "I have no problem for elders to check the mic, Brother Pang is famous for it. I probably wouldn't upset him too much!" Guest starring as a discipline teacher Chuk Man Kwan said that she was used to seeing Brother Pang's mic check all the time and thought it was very funny. Wang Tak Wai would play a mob member again.

Gigi Leung Wing Kei in less than a year after giving birth to her daughter took the role in the film SISTERHOOD (GWUT MUI). At the time she still was not in her best shape, she took the role because she found the script to be attractive. Earlier SISTERHOOD held five advanced screenings. Many viewers praised Gigi's first film performance after giving birth as sincere.

Leung Wing Kei said that during the shoot the biggest change was her body. "The main reason I took the film was I really liked this script. In addition I haven't played this type of character, I felt it was very challenging. When I made this film I just had a child. When I discussed the script with the director she instead asked me not to deliberately get into shape. Because the character actually didn't have to be particularly thin, my shape at the time was even more suitable for the character." In the film Leung Wing Kei often performed sans make up, but the greatest challenge was leaving his daughter to shoot in Macau.

The Stanley Tong Kwai Lai directed Lunar New Year action comedy KUNG FU YOGA had its three leads Jackie Chan, Aarif Rahman (Lee Chi Ting) and Zhang Yixing on a treasure hunt all over Iceland, Dubai, and India. Earlier the latest trailer was unveiled. The trio caused a ruckus on the busy streets of India and mixed Indian magic with martial art action. Aside from new and fun action scenes, the entire team even happily danced the "kung fu yoga dance". No one expected that dancing would stump Jackie Chan, who could not perform a split or the traditional Indian dance "neck roll". He only joked that his was the "squat" and an unique "Dragon style neck roll". He also complained, "Indian dance truly is too hard. I don't know how they move their necks like that."

Director Tong Kwai Lai revealed, "I have always been interested in the Indian culture. Indian magic has an over 1,000 year history. This time I mix together these very wonderful street magic tricks and action scenes for Big Brother and the others to use magic to fight the villains in the city, which makes the action scenes fun, interesting and exciting."

While Jackie Chan worked on this Indian street scene, many local fans came to watch. A mother even chased Jackie Chan with her child in tow, asking for an autograph and photo together.

courtesy of on.cc
The Nicholas Tse Ting Fung starred film COOK UP A STORM will open on Valentine's Day. He and Kenny Bee (Chung Chun To) worked on the promotional theme song LONG ROAD OF LIFE music video with an all new rock style as they displayed the bold and carefree culinary world while preserving the spirit of the original version.

This song originally was the theme song of the classic film THE CHINESE FEAST (GUM YUK MOON TONG), in which Brother B played the retired "Food God" Liu Kit. Performing the song 22 years later, they seemed to have "two generations of food god on the same stage" meaning. Tse Ting Fung said that in COOK UP A STORM he had a father and son relationship that reminded him of his own. This son also expressed the emotions of that relationship.
