The Chan Hing Ka and Chun Siu Chun co-directed Lunar New Year film ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL 2011 (JUI KEUNG HEI SI) had an all star cast that included Carina Lau Ka Ling, Louis Koo Tin Lok, Donnie Yen Chi Tan, Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi and others. Although each actor was very busy, but luckily they did not have too much problem with schedules and the roles were very evenly distributed. The cast and the crew worked together very happily. Was their biggest difficulty the need to add scenes for boss Raymond Wong Pak Ming? Chan Hing Ka said that they did not because the boss himself was a screen writing expert. His character would very reasonably appear in the film. He also appreciated the boss for not reducing production budget for the all star cast.
As Cheung Pak Chi's comeback film, did she make any special request about the production schedule? Chan Hing Ka said that she did not. He even praised Pak Chi as very cooperative. Sometimes they would shoot over 18 hours she still never complained. Sometimes she would even bring her son Lucas to the set. During the shoot, Lucas was accidentally caught on camera, but for now they did not know whether these shots would be included. However, he praised Lucas as having his parents' acting genes. Sometimes Pak Chi only made one gesture and Lucas knew to get out of the shot. As for Lau Ka Ling with her multiple costumes, both directors praised her as very cooperative. No matter what the costume was she agreed at once. Chan Hing Ka also pointed out that the film title initially was MR. MAKE UP (FA JON SIN SUN) and was not planned to be a Lunar New Year film. Later after Boss Wong read the script he thought it could be a Lunar New year release, so they made minor changes to turn it into the ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL 2011 now.
