"The Strongest in the Universe" Donnie Yen Chi Tan planned to challenge his acting in the Year of the Rat as he planned to make a new film about father and son. Although in real life his son was agile and had potential, Chi Tan felt education was important. For now he had no intention of recommending his son to perform.
Chi Tan said that currently his artistic creativity and acting were approaching maturity. No wonder he was willing to accept challenges and work with director Law Chi Leung on the film GIK DEI SAU GAU. Chi Tan this time would let go of his fist to play for tears. "This one is completely dramatic, the characters are more complex. They really test the senses. I feel they are pretty how to play." Although the film would have no fierce stunts, Chi Tan still had stunts like jumping into a river. Unfortunately the film due to the outbreak has postponed its production start until November.
Speaking of New Year wishes, Chi Tan admitted, "I wish for good health, to be able to spend more time with the family. No matter how hard the job is, ultimately it is just for the family!" His children are full of artistic genes. His son James even has inherited Chi Tan's agility, already started to practice martial arts at age 12. Although Chi Tan would make a father and son film, he had no intention to work as "father and son". He explained, "My son is practicing Brazilian Jiujitsu and Taekwondo. I feel he has potential but I still say, he is still young and education is more important. Sometimes you don't choose the film career, the film career instead would choose you. Parents want their children to be successful, but they have their own journeys."
In addition, the Chi Tan starred Lunar New Year film ENTER THE FAT DRAGON (FEI LUNG GOR GONG) would spend the New Year with everyone. Speaking of the production, he said, "I carried several dozen pound of fat guy costume and still had to fight. Everyday when I removed the makeup I could squeeze out a gallon of sweat. (Were he unable to take it?) Yes! I immediately yelled stop to rest and catch my breath."
Looking back at last year he was pleased with his performance. "Thank you for the audience support, giving IP MAN 4 a perfect performance and ending. I feel that everyone have excessively consumed Grandmaster Ip Man so I suggested not to keep going."
