Nicholas Tse Ting in the Emperor Entertainment HK$150 million new film DUT JUNG GAU WOON YING HUNG (SPECIAL RESCUE HERO) will perform dangerous stunts like fighting a real fire, building jump, and hanging in mid air personally.
Reportedly his mother Deborah Li was very worried and nervous. Emperor Entertainment bought a HK$100 million insurance policy for Ting Fung. His manager Mani Fok Man Hei ordered him to put sun block on his scalp when shooting outdoors. Because fire fighters required long term professional training but Ting Fung and others were just actors who have not received strict training, they dropped their other jobs and reported yesterday for a week of "rapid fire fighting class". Ting Fung yesterday with Hong Kong Film Award Best Actors Hu Jun and Simon Yam Tat Wa, Puchon Best Actor Shawn Yue Man Lok and William Chan Wai Ting secretly went to the Yuen Long Fire Services Training School for training.
Despite the heavy rain, the training process was not hindered. Upon arrival Ting Fung and others immediately changed into fire fighter uniforms, sat on the ground and listened to the instructor. Playing fire fighters for the first time, Ting Fung and William listened attentively with curiosity on their faces. Earlier they put on protective gears and used the fire hose in the rain outdoors. When faced with a large fire ball Ting Fung looked calm and courageous.
DUT's director is the Hong Kong Film Award Best Picture winner Derek Kwok Chi Kin. The story will have Hong Kong building collapse, fiery explosions and industrial accidents as blue prints. Aside from Best Actors Ting Fung, Hu Jun, Yam Tat Wa and others as the beyond manly fire fighters, the film will also have Mainland star Bai Bing, Emperor new comer Alice Li Xiaonan and local beauty Michelle Wai (Si Nga).
