Charlie Yeung Choi Nei yesterday attended a shopping center New Spring decoration unveiling ceremony. Later she will spend the Lunar New Year with her mother in Taiwan. On this trip back to Hong Kong she also met with her newlywed sister Gigi Leung Wing Kei. This year was Gigi's first year as a married woman and giving away laisee. She joked, "Right, I definitely will ask her for it."
Charlie recently has been busy with directing as she planned for her first new film CHRISTMAS ROSE, which Charlie will write and director and invited directors Tsui Hark and Jacob Cheung Chi Leung to produce. She pointed out that directors Tsui Hark and Cheung Chi Leung taught her a lot of filmmaking knowledge and asked their friends to help. She did not know how to repay them. She also said that her new film from script conception to the production start took three years. She felt that it was not a long time since it was her first time and she did not have any experience. She heard that some scripts after 7 to 8 years still have not been made. Seemingly the entire team would charge "friend rates". Who would she like the leads to be? She said that although they have been confirmed she could not announce them yet. Would she invite her good sisters? She asked everyone to wait for the production start date. She hoped to concentrate on the film preparation and would not participate on screen. With the title would the film be a Christmas release? She said that the film had nothing to do with Christmas, it only meant hope.
