MCDULL ME AND MY MUM two nights ago held its premiere at the Kowloon Bay Exhibition Center. Wilson Chin Kwok Wai and his girlfriend Calinda Chan Yuen Wai attended. The Stephen Chow Sing Chi directed new film MERMAID will have Chin Kwok Wai as its executive director. Chin Kwok Wai revealed that most of the cast has been confirmed and the production will start around mid October. Mainly Mainland and Hong Kong actors will perform.
Chow Sing Chi earlier was criticized online for being hard to get along with. Most who have worked with him would neither work together for too long nor become friends. Chin Kwok Wai said, "I don't feel this way. . When I went to work in TVB, it happened to be the end of his TVB life. When I got into the business I have played the 'black and white vampires', I have shared the stage with him. Later we ran into each other once or twice on the street." He pointed out that with every film or production, co-workers would normally argue. Also, TVB earlier downsized fifty people, including long time employees. He said, "I heard that the entire children department was removed, which was regrettable. The children department more than cultivated Sing Yeh, (Tony) Leung Chiu Wai, (Margie) Tsang Wa Sin, (Dior) Cheng Yi Kin and other stars, I hope Hong Kong would have its own children's programs." Chin Kwok Wai pointed out that some former co-workers were affected. If they asked for his help he certainly would.
