The Jia Zhangke directed documentary I WISH I KNEW held a screening two nights ago. He said that because he was a Johnnie To Kei Fung fan he invited him in particular and revealed that they will work together on a wuxia film that he will produce and tentatively titled IN THE QING DYNASTY (JOI CHING CHIU). To Kei Fung also said that he was a Jia Zhangke fan. They have admired each other and waited for 3 years before having chance to work together. Would he ask Chow Yun Fat to take part? He said that the cast has not been set and joked that Fat Gor had to play the Jade Emperor and he would have to wait until Chow returned from the Heavenly Palace. Speaking of Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi's comeback, he thought it was a good thing and said that show business truly lacked people, the more comeback the better.

To Kei Fung said that despite preparation before the shoot accidents were difficult to avoid, but reducing accidents was a professional's basic job. Over the years he would communicate clearly
and tried to be safe. Jia Zhangke also felt that productions should take clear safety precautions as actor safety should be the foremost concern.
