CITY OF DRAGONS creator Yu Yi and film producer John Chong Ching, executive producer Angus Chan Law Chiu yesterday appeared at the Animation Comic Game Hong Kong to attend the CITY OF DRAGONS film and game press conference. Chan revealed that the production budget will be around 300 million RMB and the film will start production next year. The TVB series A FIST WITHIN FOUR WALLS has been accused of plagiarizing CITY OF DRAGONS. Would Yu Yi take action against TVB? Yu Yi said, "It would be very hard. The series hasn't aired yet, I don't know how the story will be like. Theirs takes place in the 50s and the 60s, ours if the 80s and 90s Hong Kong is familiar with. The background is different." Chan Law Chiu said that the costumes and names were close. Speaking of online suggestions for Nicholas Tse Ting Fung, Eddie Peng Yu-Yan and Shawn Yue Man Lok, Dior Cheng Yi Kin to star, Yu Yi said that they were all his favorites and Chong Ching said that they were all under consideration.
