Benny Chan, Sammo Hung

Directors Benny Chan Muk Sing and Sammo Hung Kam Bo teamed up for the new film CALL OF HEROES (NGAI SING), in which Sean Lau Ching Wan as a small figure defended against the authority Louis Koo Tin Lok, while Wu Jing and Eddie Peng Yu-Yan fought to the havens with real kung fu. Speaking of Lau Ching Wan's long whip, a rarely sen weapon in wu xia films, action director Hung Kam Bo said that it was chosen purely due to his personal preference. "Although it has been used before, our whip is prettier!" He said that Lau Ching Wan spent over a month on training and was able to crack the whip. "Peng Yu-Yan also spent some time on the double blade, the only one who didn't have to train was Wu Jing." Chan Muk Sing said that Koo Tin Lok was willing to give up his leading man image to play a villain, which was truly rare. Hung Kam Bo said that the biggest difficulty to overcome in the shoot was the rain for 2/3 of it. Chan Muk Sing revealed that the team made a giant tent for the shoot. "We used six cranes to prop up the tarp for the shoot!"
