The Derek Yee Sing Tung produced, Alan Mak Siu Fai and Felix Chong Man Keung directed police film OVERHEARD 2 (SIT TING FUNG WON 2) finally unveiled its first stills. Playing a down and out cop in the previous film, Lau Ching Wan in this film became a suit and tie, upper
class multimillionaire gentleman. The difference was quite a surprise. Yee Tung Sing even said that this film will completely escalate. Ching Wan's character change was just the tip of the iceberg as even more pleasant surprise was on the way.
In the past Ching Wan looked like a slob in most films, but this time he turned into a financial genius with sea view mansions and worth hundreds of millions. Not only did he appear in a suit, but he was an elite among the upper class and the focus of attention in the social scene. Ching Wan joked about the character change. "This time not only the boss has money, even we (in the film) have money. However this was only in comparison to the first film. Although he was worth hundred of millions, but if compared to Mark Zuckerberg from THE SOCIAL NETWORK he still had quite a way to go!" Although this film's characters did not have to worry about money, they still have endless troubles and rumors. At the same time the film maintained the previous' suspenseful and intense style, and realistically revealed the Hong Kong upper class society's
extravagance and the crimes hidden within. In comparison to the previous work it had even more caliber and greater scope.
