The Tony Leung Chiu Wai starred film THE SILENT WAR (TING FUNG JEH) was no match for VULGARIA (DAI JOOK HEI KET) at the Hong Kong box office but was a big hit in the Mainland. Its first week total box office was almost 150 million RMB. Two days ago Wai Jai and directors Alan Mak Siu Fai and Felix Chong Man Keung attended the Guangzhou celebration. Wai Jai said, "As an actor, basically without the box office I won't have anything. After the movie is made, the boss makes money and we continue to have movies to make. This is very important." Wai Jai in the film played blind and gave up his electrifying eyes to act. He said that it was very hard and he never wanted to play blind again. "I have always been used to act with my eyes, suddenly not using them was very painful."
The directors hoped to make OVERHEARD 3 (SIT TING FUNG WON 3) and basically has already written the script.
