The Peter Chan Ho Sun produced, Teddy Chan Tak Sum directed BODYGUARDS AND ASSASSINS (SUP YUET WAI SING) has entered its final stages. Donnie Yen Chi Tan, Wang Xueqi, Tony Leung Ka Fai, Nicholas Tse Ting Fung, Hu Jun, Eric Tsang Chi Wai, Chris Li Yuchun, Simon Yam Tat Wa, Fan Bingbing, Zhou Yun, Bateer, Wang Po-Chieh, and Leon Lai Ming have all appeared in the production. The final addition to the cast actually was Michelle Reis (Lee Ka Yun), who made her comeback after marriage after a long absence from the silver screen.
According to the film's promotional director Mr. Lu, Lee Ka Yun's connection to BODYGUARDS AND ASSASSINS could be traced back to ten years ago when the film was under its first preparation. At the time, Chan Ho Sun approached Lee Ka Yun but the film due to a variety of reasons was unable to be made. This time, Lee Ka Yun remained producer Chan Ho Sun and director Chan Tak Sum's first choice. "This character affected beggar's life." Mr. Lu revealed, although Lee Ka Yun's role would not have a lot of screen time it would enhance the film. "The director and the producer are both very touched that she is able to make this ten year long appointment." Reportedly, Lee Ka Yun next week will head to Shanghai for the entire film's wrap.
