The Andy Lau Tak Wa and Barbie Hsu (Tsui Hei Woon) starred new film FUTURE X-COPS (MEI LOI GAING CHAT) has not yet been released. Lately a magazine claimed that the film was unfinished due to an investor backing out. Wong Jing yesterday attended a press conference with two representatives from the special effect company. Wong Jing said that the report was only 10 to 20% fact, 90% fiction. As for the investor "on the lam", Wong Jing pointed out that Mr. Tsai was one of the investors. He is currently in Beijing and is not "on the lam". Earlier he contacted him.
Wong Jing pointed out that FUTURE X-COPS only had eight investors, the biggest was Mega Vision with 30%. Mr. Tsai was responsible for special effect post production. He admitted that earlier his cash was delayed a little but was very quickly taken care of. Wong Jing said, "We are a public company, so we have no chance to left it unfinished." However, he admitted that the investor indeed had financial dispute. The film that he funded individually has halted production but FUTURE X-COPS remained unaffected.
The film has already been confirmed for a March 30 nation wide release. The report claimed that the film was filling up the schedule, which Wong Jing denied. He pointed out that the Mainland had few holidays, even Ching Ming Festival's one day holiday is cherished. Other releases of the same period included FIRE OF CONSCIENCE (FOR LUNG), CROSSING HENNESSY (YUET MOON HIN NEI SI) and ALICE IN WONDERLAND, everyone have been fighting for the schedule. He pointed out that this report affected his films and company so he would reserve the right to take legal action.
