The 45 invisible tycoon in the entertainment industry, Louis Koo Tin Lok has not yet won any Best Actor award but he is fully committed to film. Last year he made 14 films in one breath and this year will be his harvest period. In the summer, he will have 5 film releases as well as the animated films FINDING DORY and ICE AGE: COLLISION COURSE. With his current rate 20 million RMB per film, this summer he already made 100 million and all 5 films are guaranteed to be hits. He can rise to become the 2 billion RMB box office star.

His passion for film can rival that of Andy Lau Tak Wa. In recent years he founded One Cool Film Production, not only investing in film productions but also on his own films. Last year he made 14 films and 13 commercials and made over 400 million yuan.

In this summer Goo Jai alone will have five film releases, including the July 14th release, the Johnnie To Kei Fung directed THREE (SAM YUN HUNG). This pair has already worked together 11 times and this time Goo Jai will continue to play a cop; in the July 29th release LEAGUE OF GODS (FUNG SUN JUEN KEI), although he will only guest star he will also make time to promote Mr. and Mrs. Charles Heung Wa Keung's comeback investment and support his former boss who gave him a lot of opportunities; he, Charmaine Sheh Si Man and Nick Cheung Ka Fai starred in LINE WALKER (SI TOH HUNG JEH), in which he will play a drug dealer with a sly and cold personality. The film has been tentatively scheduled for an August 11th release; in CALL OF HEROES (NGAI SING) Goo Jai will play a evil warlord and the film will be release on August 18th. The Z STORM (Z FUNG BO) sequel S STORM has been scheduled for an August 25th release. In S STORM Goo Jai will play a high ranking ICAC investigator of a HK$ 1 billion corruption case. This time Julian Cheung Chi Lam and Vic Chou Yu Man will join him in the cast. Among the 5 films Goo Jai will play both good and evil characters and definitely will have a lot of fun with his acting. Even without any award nomination for encouragement, his salary can easily reach 100 million RMB.

However, his biggest headache is from how to schedule his promotions to avoid upsetting anyone. Currently he is working on MAU SING YUN (MEOW STAR ALIEN) and still has 3 movies that are waiting to start production, but Goo Jai will make room to promote every film. He will face stiff competition from films like the three Best Actor Chow Yun Fat, Aaron Kwok Fu Sing and Tony Leung Ka Fai starred COLD WAR 2 (HONG JIN II). The first COLD WAR made over HK$ 40 million to become the 2012 Chinese film box office champion. Chow Yun Fat joins the cast in the second film. Goo Jai then has to fend off animations FINDING DORY and ICE AGE: COLLISION COURSE.
