Raymond Wong Pak Ming yesterday attended a Hong Kong Film Development Council press conference. He said that the Lunar New Year film ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL 2011 (JUI KEUNG HEI SI) will soon start production as a co-production in Hong Kong and the Mainland. The cast has already been confirmed and will include the film industry comeback of Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi, Carina Lau Ka Ling, Louis Koo Tin Lok, Donnie Yen Chi Tan, Lynn Xiong (Hung Doi Lam), Angelababy, Chapman To Man Jat and Mainland film star Yan Ni. Ronald Cheng Chung Kei also agreed to guest star. The story will pair up Cheung Pak Chi and Koo Tin Lok, Yen Chi Tan and Lau Ka Ling and To Man Jat and Hung Doi Lam.
Did Wong Pak Ming pay 1 million daily for Cheung Pak Chi's comeback? He said, "It's business secret that I don't want to talk much about, but since I hired her I definitely feel she is worth it. This time the investment will at least be 50 million." He also said that although Ka Ling has not made a comedy in a long time, Ka Ling was full of experience. She was definitely confident about her comedic abilities. As for Eric Tsang Chi Wai's Lunar New Year film I LOVE HONG KONG and his guaranteed victory, Wong Pak Ming felt that they would only improve with competition and even jokingly challenged Chi Wai to bring it.
