Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Lau Ching Wan and Zhou Xun in the film THE GREAT MAGICIAN (DAI MOR SHOOK SI) battled villains Black Eagles. Ching Wan turned into God of War as he wield the latest and the most powerful weapon "roast duck leg" against the killer in black; Wai Jai battled back with magic and created a magical staff style of his own.
Ching Wan said that when director Derek Yee Tung Sing explained this scene to him, he asked him to use the "roast duck leg" as a weapon. He thought he was joking. Then on the set when the crew handed him with roast duck legs he realized that it was true. With dug legs in hand, Ching Wan wielded his "weapon" like Bruce Lee with nunchukus. Wai Jai added magic in his stunt. He pointed out that kung fu and magic both could easily attract the attention of the audience, but in the film world they rarely merged. Wai Jai and Ching Wan both complimented Yee Tung Sing's creativity.
