The Chow Yun Fat and Huang Xiaoming starred film THE LAST TYCOON (DAI SEUNG HOI) has wrapped and will be released on the December Mainland holiday slot. Other releases in the period will be Stephen Chow Sing Chi's NEW CHINESE ODYSSEY (CHUI MOR JUEN KEI), Tony Leung Chiu Wai's THE GRANDMASTERS (YUT DOI JUNG SI) and Jackie Chan's CHINESE ZODIAC (SUP YI SUN CHIU). Fat Gor described this holiday slot as very exciting. "Like the duel at Mt. Hua, people look forward to it."
The final scene of THE LAST TYCOON was an airport explosion. Producer Andrew Lau Wai Keung said, "Director Wong Jing is a film industry elder, I never expect him to take such risks for THE LAST TYCOON; this movie has been his dream of many years. I have to fully assist its completion."
Fat Gor has not worked on a Hong Kong film production in over a decade. Earlier he spent a long time in Hollywood. THE LAST TYCOON team was mainly from Hong Kong. That impulsive moment and invincible spirit were even more familiar to him. This time he worked with the Mainland Hui Man Keung (Huang Xiaoming), the feeling was also wonderful. Huang Xiaoming said, "Working with Fat Gor has been very memorable." Yolanda Yuan Quan said that working with Fat Gor was like a dream that she did not want to wake up from.
Fat Gor said that everyone's impression of Wong Jing was for his comedy, actually he was rather amazing with drama as well. Early on they worked together on the television series like THE GIANT (KEUNG YUN), CONFLICT (FUN DAU) and THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE UGLY (MONG JUNG YUN). This time his return to drama with THE LAST TYCOON would surprise everyone. Wong Jing thanked Fat Gor, "He put in a lot into his performance, he was Hui Man Keung, Mark Gor and God of Gamblers all three in one. Watching him perform is a blood boiling pleasure."
