Philip Chan Yun Kin, Michael Hui Koon Man, Kara Hui (Wai Ying Hung) and Jeana Ho Pui Yu yesterday attended a film company press conference in Guangzhou. Michael even signed with the company to write and direct the comedy DA FU (BEATING TIGER) as the company's first shot.
Michael revealed that he has not directed in 18 years because he has not run into a script that he liked. This time he finally could fulfill his directing dream again. He said, "The lead actor has to be handsome, a good actor and has a sense of humor. I feel Gum Sing Mo (Takeshi Kaneshiro) is very suitable. (Sean) Lau Ching Wan, (Louis) Koo TIn Lok and Huang Bo can be considered as well; as for actresses I want to invite Angelababy."
As the company chief, Philip said that the company will invest 800 million yuan to make movies over two or three years. Michael's film will have an 80 million yuan investment, he hoped its release would bring 250 million yuan. In addition, Siu Hung said that she has known Philip for years and would not mind giving him a discount.
