The film ACT OF VALOR two nights ago held a Hong Kong premiere. Attendees included Anthony Wong Chau Sun, Carol Yeung Chi Yiu, Louis Cheung Kai Chung, Patrick Lui Yau Fai and his 11 year old son. Wong Chau Sun just completed the romantic film with Dylan Kuo and Amber An and recently returned from Beijing to promote his film MOTORWAY (CHEH SAU); reportedly he went from a guest star to the lead in this film. He joked, "I don't mind, kids don't mind being taken advantage of. (Did you ask boss Peter Lam Kin Ngor for back pay?) No, Mr. Lam has bought a lot of benefits to me over the years."
Later Chau Sun will work on IP MAN's final chapter, which will start production in August. In the film he will play Ip Man later in life, from his 40s to his death. Anita Yuen Wing Yi will play his wife and the role of Bruce Lee is still being cast. Would he suggest his god son Jay Chou (Chow Kit Lun)? Chau Sun said that Bruce Lee was still very little when he was with Ip Man, age wise the role would not be suitable for him. In the past Donnie Yen Chi Tan, Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Dennis To Yu Hang have all played Ip Man. Will he feel any pressure playing the role? Chau Sun said no, his film will be Ip Man's real Hong Kong experience that has not been made before.
Chau Sun also said that he has studied Wing Chun for half a year. Now first he has to lose weight as he hoped to drop from 170 to 150 pounds. The film will shoot on location in Foshan.
