TLT Lottotain purchased 51% of Maria Cordero's Fountain City for HK$34.5 million. Yesterday a contract signing and a celebration were held. Many industry insiders attended, including Deborah Li (Dik Bor Lai) and her husband Moustache Kong, Raymond Wong Pak Ming, JJ Jia (Ga Hiu Sun), Lin Li, Catherine Hung Yun and others. Fat Ma said that Fountain City had many businesses, including food program channel, management company and television and film productions. Its first shot will be a youth musical.
Wong Pak Ming recently invited Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi to work on his Lunar New Year film ALL'S WELL ENDS WELL 2011 (JUI KEUNG HEI SI). He pointed out that the film will start production next year. Pak Chi was in great shape. About Pak Chi's supposed 15 million salary, Wong Pak Ming said that he did not want to publicize actor prices. It was reasonable and well worth the price. He said that early in the year he thought Sandra Ng Kwan Yu was pregnant, he pointed out that two years ago when he asked her to make a movie, he ruined her motherhood plan. Thus this time he did not dare to ask again. Reportedly Derek Yee Tung Sing was at odds with Wong Pak Ming over the first film of Pak Chi's comeback. Wong Pak Ming said that he had no idea, but from another angle, when Pak Chi accepted his film the pressure was not as large as the film had more than one or two stars. Last year his Lunar New Year film clashed with Eric Tsang Chi Wai's and Tsang Chi Wai won. Wong Pak Ming joked that let him have his glory. He joked, "I already said that Chi Wa was jealous. When I made a holiday film, he followed suit. Every year he is fighting for the bowl, but it doesn't matter though. We make money together, whoever wins or loses doesn't matter. He has the support of such a big television station he definitely will win."
