Jet Li (Lee Nin Kit) and Tsui Hark after 14 years ago reunited for the film FLYING SWORDS OF DRAGON GATE (LUNG MOON FEI GAP) and dispelled rumors of their dispute. Yesterday they attended the press conference. Lee Nin Kit said that he has not worked with Tsui Hark for years but both were men of the wuxia world and had each other in mind. For any risk they would take it together.

Lee Nin Kit said, "Actually I don't know where the dispute came from. I have a lot of secrets here. Back then he approached me with the DETECTIVE DEE AND THE MYSTERY OF THE PHANTOM FLAME (DIK YUN KIT ji TUNG TIN DAI GOK), only no one else knew." Tsui Hark felt comforted about being able to work with Lee Nin Kit again after over ten years and was very excited. This time 3D was very fresh for them both, they were classmates who studied together. Lee Nin Kit said that he had a deep longing for 3D, during the shoot when other actors went to the director to watch the effects he did not dare to. Yesterday he finally put on the glasses to work the final results with everyone. Lee Nin Kit pointed out that this time he tried to make a 3D movie for the first time, which was a huge risk. Secondly, Director Tsui Hark has always had the spirit of taking risks. Years ago he lead the Chinese wuxia film wave. Lee Nin Kit also pointed out that the biggest risk taker was boss Yu Dong. He invested on China's first all 3D wuxia film, adding him to the shoot was pretty expensive.

Lee Nin Kit also said that he was very glad that Tsui Hark invited him this time. If it was ten more years later, he was afraid that he might not be tempted. Whether this was his first or final 3D film, he felt very honored to have this chance. He said that in the 80s he made SHAOLIN TEMPLE, in the 90s he made ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA (WONG FEI HUNG), and ten years later he also made HERO, now he made FLYING SWORDS OF DRAGON GATE. He hoped this film could give him a different change. During the shoot due to 3D every action scene took 8 seconds. Fighting 8 seconds to him personally was already the limit.
