The film THE SILENT WAR (TING FUNG JEH)'s Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Zhou Xun "gray eyes poster" has been unveiled. Wai Jai in the film played He Bing as his electrifying eyes turned gray.
Directors Alan Mak Siu Fai and Felix Chong Man Keung and the original author May Jia were interviewed. Because the television series starred Wang Baoqiang, May Jia thought that the film version with Leung Chiu Wai whose electrifying eyes suddenly could not see would be attractive to viewers. When Mak Siu Fai was considering the cast, Wai Jai was not the first choice. "Without box office and production consideration, Feng Xiaogang was the most perfect choice for He Bing; however, Feng Xiaogang is a big time director. Without 100 million yuan it would be hard to invite him to perform. So we asked Leung Chiu Wai." Zhou Xun's character in the original work was a man, He Bing's superior. Thus they had a type of "once deeply in love but the love was already gone" feeling.
