Raymond Wong Pak Ming's holiday film ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL 2010 (JUI KEUNG HEI SI) yesterday held a press conference at the Cyberport. Actors Carina Lau Ka Ling, Donnie Yen Chi Tan, Louis Koo Tin Lok, Wang Yuanyuan and the SIMPLE NOODLE STORY Yan Ni attended. Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi was absent due to illness. Ka Ling yesterday said that the production time was too long and even complained that the reason was accommodating Chi Tan's schedule. Chi Tan looked rather awkward on the spot.
Lau Ka Ling said that ALL'S will soon be released thus the shoot schedule was very intense. Two nights ago she and Chi Tan worked for 20 hours. Did she know before hand about the long production time? Chi Tan said that he knew but Ka Ling said she did not. She even joked that Chi Tan knew and did not tell her. Chi Tan joked, "Wong Pak Ming conned you." Ka Ling honestly agreed but this production has been rather pleasant. Because she rarely made movies in Hong Kong she should support Hong Kong film more. If she knew the schedule would be so intense, would she still have taken the role? Ka Ling said that two nights ago she just reflected
that the production could not be like this. Even if she could take it, the result would not be good. Comedy dialogues were funny, if she lacked sleep she would not lack oxygen. Yet she also would like everyone to sense their joy.
Did Chi Tan have too many films so the schedule had to accommodate him? Ka Ling took a jab at him and said, "I think it is, I am not very busy. We must be rushing for his schedule." Would Chi Tan give any nourishment to Ka Ling? Ka Ling instead asked Chi Tan which product was he representing. Later she said that she did not need any nourishment. Chi Tan explained that he did not have too many films with schedule conflicts. This year he made three movies and it was one after another, but not counting the one tomorrow. Ka Ling said, "You have to work tomorrow? I have to make your overtime money." Chi Tan praised Ka Ling and said that he learned acting from Ka Ling. Reportedly Chi Tan asked for Ka Ling for this film, Chi Tan humbly said that he did not dare to name anyone. He only asked. If they were able to land Ka Ling then it would be great because her acting was great, she was fun, pretty and young. Ka Ling asked reporters to remember to write that down and thanked Chi Tan for asking for her and showing her respect.
Later, Ka Ling was asked after working with Chi Tan did she feel Chi Tan was a more handsome Ip Man than her husband Tony Leung Chiu Wai's. She said, "Everyone has a handsome guy in their hearts, both are very strong." Ka Ling also said that this film would be very funny, like Chi Tan would constantly channel Ip Man. She said that he was too in character and still could not leave it. Ka Ling also joked that Chi Tan could make a third film. Speaking of Ka Ling's love Leung Chiu Wai who is working on Ip Man, would it be bad for her to tell Chi Tan to make a third film? Ka Ling said that her lover's was THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JUNG SI) and asked no one to mix them up. In addition, Wang Yuanyuan reportedly had the chance to work on the film because of her brother in law Yen Chi Tan. Yuanyuan said that was not true. She said that she was very interested in the film. Casting was a decision for the boss and the director. She would rely on her own hard work.
Wong Pak Ming, Yan Ni and Koo Tin Lok yesterday attended the event. Wong Pak Ming said that yesterday morning Pak Chi called and said that she was not feeling well, so she was absent. Wong Pak Ming honestly said that the actor schedules were very hard to deal with. Would Pak Chi's illness affect the production progress? He said that it would not. Goo Jai in the film was paired with many actors and had many scenes with Pak Chi. How did working with Pak Chi feel? He said, "On the first day I saw her, we were working on the poster. Pak Chi said that she was a little nervous but she very quickly got into shape." Did Goo Jai feel Pak Chi's acting was different now that she is a mother? He said, "She would often talk about her sons and said that she would like to stay in Hong Kong more. Earlier when we were shooting downstairs, Pak Chi would play with her son when she had time." Would Goo Jai like to have a child? He said that it was not like he could have one when he wanted one. Recently many people wed, but he had to wait for the arrangements from above in this area and could not rush it.
Goo Jai said that earlier when he saw Lucas he thought he was very mischievous and naughty, but actually he was very obedient to Pak Chi and would not disturb Mama's acting. He would stand aside and played nicely. In addition, Goo Jai said that he heard about a Mainland hospital using his TRIPLE TAP (CHEUNG WONG JI WONG) photo to advertise circumcision for 60 yuan. "It was a flyer, not a publicly displayed ad." Since the matter was related to him and the film company, both sides would follow up. He said that the flyers stopped after a few days of distribution, so he had to get an understanding on how to follow up. He honestly said that the
use was rather wonderful. Goo Jai said that not only him, many artists' image has been pirated. He would try to be careful but hoped that no one would be misled by the ad. Goo jai honestly said that unless it was very severe, sometimes he would not deliberately prosecute.
