The film THE LAST TYCOON (DAI SEUNG HOI) will soon be released with producer Andrew Lau Wai Keung, planner Manfred Wong (Man Jun) and director Wong Jing, stars Chow Yun Fat, Huang Xiaoming, Sammo Hung Kam Bo, Francis Ng Chun Yu, Yolanda Yuan Quan and others. Bona film group chair Yu Dong brought together Chow Yun Fat, Hung Kam Bo and Ng Chun Yu who have never worked together in 30 years. He said Chow Yun Fat and director Wong Jing have worked together many times. 18 years later they are together again with Best Actors Hung Kam Bo and Ng Chun Yu, people are looking forward to it.
Hung Kam Bos said that he prepared a "heroic duo" script for Fat Gor, but due to scheduling they missed the chance. This time they finally had a chance to work together. He deliberately asked the director to add his previous concept into the film, finally the major scene in which he and Fat Gor became sworn brothers in THE LAST TYCOON appeared. As for working with Chow Yun Fat, Hung Kam Bo said that he had no pressure at all. He joked that he was only little fatter but was still very cool. In the film they played tycoons of the Bund. Hung Kam Bo not only did not pale in comparison to Fat Gor's handsomeness and dominance but also revealed his character had better luck with the ladies than Chow Yun Fat. He said, "In this film I look very cool, I have more women around me than him, I am even more handsome than him. Because of that later I suffered the envy of others and almost cost me my life!"
The film also tested Hung Kam Bo's patience, in one scene he, Fat Gor and Ng Chun Yu were in a bathhouse. Hung Kam Bo said, "Luckily everyone is a good actor and we quickly got it done. However I definitely would peel from the soaking." Earlier he had very few opportunities to shoot in a bathhouse. Normally the bath would feel very comfortable. Yet this time he had to deliver lines as he bathed, the feeling was very different.
