Stephen Fung Tak Lun and Daniel Wu (Ng Yin Cho) recently formed the production company Diversion Pictures. After the Beijing press conference, yesterday they in Hong Kong held a contract signing ceremony with Huayi Brothers chief Wong Zhonglei to officially announce Huayi Brothers' investment in Diversion and collaboration on a series of film projects. Diversion first will make the film TAI CHI, then YING HUNG BOON SIK. Fung Tak Lun said that he purchased the right to remake the 1967 Lung Kong directed STORY OF A DISCHARGED PRISONER (YING HUNG BOON SIK) long ago. He and Ng Yin Cho will produce and they will look for a suitable director. Yesterday the event also aired John Woo (Ng Yu Sum)'s congratulatory video. Ng Yu Sum praised them as talents and looked forward to their YING HUNG BOON SIK.
Fung Tak Lun and Ng Yin Cho are good friends and now bosses, are they worried that they would argue? Ng Yin Cho joked that if they would, they would fight and whoever won would be in charge. Fung Tak Lun joked, "Then I should be in charge." Fung Tak Lun said that he and Ng Yin Cho always had the idea of creating a production company and talked about it for several years. Last year they confirmed. Ng Yin Cho said that Fung Tak Lun was a good friend, so in collaboration they did not have to hold back. Would they ask Ng Yu Sum to be YING HUNG BOON SIK consultant? Fung Tak Lun said that they would discuss it further. Does Fung Tak Lun have time to date now? He said that although he would like to he was too busy. He joked that the responsibility of screening actresses should go to him because Ng Yin Cho had a wife and should stay home. As for former rumored girlfriend Vivian Hsu (Tsui Yeuk Suen) supposedly had a new boyfriend, Fung Tak Lun said that he did not know and said that at this event he would just talk about film. Would he ask Tsui Yeuk Suen to make a movie? He honestly said that he would with a good subject, but he did not open this company for himself but to make good movies.
