Best Actor Nick Cheung Ka Fai and director Dante Lam Chiu Yin again teamed up for the new film GIK JIN (EXTREME WAR) with Andy Tien (On Chi Kit) and Eddie Peng Yu-Yen. Earlier the production applied for a Prince Edward Road block and received approval for it between 9PM and 4AM. Regional Council members complained over disturbance concerns. Two nights ago the team finally appeared in the Flower Market Road. Playing a taxi driver Ka Fai was attacked with baseball bats and then the vehicle was set on fire. The team waited until the nearby florists closed to set up lighting in order to shrink the time to its shortest and reduce unnecessary trouble. Lam Chiu Yin also reduced the light from the car burning scene to its smallest. Although heavy smoke arose after the shoot, the team quickly put it out and left in less than two hours.
Ka Fai's finger has not yet healed but still put in quite an effort during the attack. After he decided to take this film, he not only spent time to get into shape but also trained in "mixed martial art" and "Brazilian Jujitsu". Lam Chiu Yin planned to wrap up the film with Ka Fai and On Chi Kit in a topless fight. Lam Chiu Yin said, "I don't want to say too much. During the costume fitting Ka Fai, On Chi Kit and Peng Yu-Yen had to take off their shirts and put on oil. Many women fought to help. (Did Ka Fai's finger injury affect the shoot?) More or less, I just switched the schedule around. The most important is he is fine."
